Just a heads up.
I use half blue barrels for my grow beds.
I have just cleaned them out after three and a half years of continuous production.
There was a lot of sand in them where I assumed the scoria had broken down over that time.
Now to the point of the message.
Most of my barrels are a solid blue in colour but one was blue on the outside and white on the inside. You can see it was manufactured from two different materials although they both feel the same.
The solid blue barrels look the same as I started with but the blue and white barrels had both cracked almost through from the inside to the outside every where they were supported by the stands.
You can check how they were supported here.

I would suggest that these bi-coloured barrels are to be avoided if catastrophic future failure is to be avoided.
Just my experience so far.
