to make it lighter; you have to add some holes to the bottom of the barrel.

It is not possible to add something to the barrel to make it lighter, as the weight of the barrel would still be the same regardless of what is added to it. In order to make the barrel weigh less, you would need to remove some of the water, or empty the barrel entirely.

you add sand because it absorbs water and making it lighter

The sand would just make it heavier lmao. Sure it absorbs water and all, but it literally adds to the weight more than water itself does haha. Ik im 2 years late and stuff but still. I think its holes based on other people's answers haha. Nice try tho ig

You can add a hole. The water will leak out.
