Water has adverse effects on any lubricating oil and must be inspected frequently for leaks. If the oil barrel must be placed straight, it is advisable to invert the oil barrel, so that the barrel mouth downward, or slightly tilt the bucket, put the oil mouth above, so as to prevent rainwater accumulation in the bucket surface infiltration.
