All the "ports" are molded closed. You will need a 1.75" hole saw drill bit, to 'open' them.
At least one 'top port' is to be drilled open and used as an overflow port.
This product will not be shipped inside of a wasteful cardboard container. It may attain a few bumps, bruises or scrapes during transit. None of these cosmetic imperfections will effect the barrels ability to hold liquid.
