I used to use 20gal LDPE brutes,but a couple years ago I went to 20gal HDPE open head drums with locking collars.

Definitely if I was using 55 Gallon barrels I would probably do the same as johnT.

Step/pc 2: Pump free run juice to tank/secondary. Note that I use PVC.

Step/pic3: press through a strainer and into the tank.
That's a lot of pvc in your process, surely you don't want to be ingesting all of the toxins, so just send your wine to me, I'll pay the shipping, store it in a safe place (55F and 70%RH), and dispose of it properly over time, LOL!!!!!!

You don't have to be childish. Use whatever you want.

It's not that difficult or any more expensive to spec out use the correct materials.

Rest assured that neither difficulty nor expense are an issue for me. Until I see empirical scientific evidence that wine passing briefly through PVC is contaminated, my opinion will continue to differ from yours about what are "correct" materials for a specific application. I hope you can respect our difference of opinion.
