210L - 250L Blopak Conversion to Open Top



Due to the large demand for grey water & rain water storage and a great shortage of open top with lid & clamp or open top with big screw on lids we are suggesting clients use a blopak conversion. 


Once the head of the drum is cut off we invert the head and the inner ridge of the the head fits over the cutting line of the drum forming a dust cover that is fairly stable and wont easily slide off due to the drum edge fitting into the inner ridge of the head. (See pics 1 & 4 -left to right)


The drums are available in a A Class & B Class.


The A Class (Pic. 1,3 & (5 & below - Last blue drum on the right)) costs R350.00 (Drum only) & R17.10 to cut the head off .


The B Class (Pic. 2, 4 & (5, below - Orange/blue drum & Green drum the left of Blue Drum)) cost R250.00 including the head cut off.


All prices include VAT.

Massive Demand for 1000L's & BG's Approach

1000L IBC's / Flobins / Totes have become HOT property and it's no longer a case of what they cost but whether you can find them. Unfortunately we are turning away 10-20 potential clients daily. 

PLEASE NOTE below how we have chosen to manage the demand.


1] We have chosen to give our long standing industrial clients preference and any excess stock is released to the public.


2]  At 9:00 daily our lines are open to enquire what is available. (Please call - DONT JUST ARRIVE as those calling in are given 1st option as they have generally called a few times before.)


3] The 1st callers who accept what we have available have their names written on the flobins & have till the end of the day to have paid. Any not paid in full are allocated to the pool for the next day and sold to new callers. Once paid we encourage collection as soon as possible which reduces the risk of us unintentionally selling them to someone else.


4] History reflects that depending on how many come available, all are sold within 10 to 60 mins of 1st caller.


Perseverance & patience are the order of the day as we can't determine how many will be available (if any) daily, what the exact prices will be as they are based on what they cost us & what condition or grade the flobins will be. 


We apologise for the inconvenience and trust if we can't help you you come right elsewhere.


WARNING: We are experiencing SERIOUS SHORTAGES in certain types & sizes of our plastic drums. Due to the increased water restrictions drums have become as valuable as WATER itself. Unfortunately our stock levels have plumbited since November 2016 and we are having to turn clients away daily.  

APOLOGIES for the INCONVENIENCE but BG does not manufacture the drums and are dependant on various sources of supply. The supply can be seasonal, subject to changes in packaging & often sold off to informal traders dirty for higher prices despite this being illegal.


1] PLEASE CALL the office to check what we have available before venturing down to visit.

2] CHECK REGULARLY for stock changes. At this stage many of our OPEN TOPS & SCREW TOPS drums are being snatched up as they are delivered and we only know what we have availble for the next day once reconciling what has come in the day before. 

3] If you have a specific drum in mind see if you could use an alternative drum and ask the telephone operator what they can suggest. If we do have stock I suggest pay, securing the drum/s & collect soonest. 

We trust the situation changes in the near future & thank you for your understanding.
