Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Like every other reviewer, I was very happy to see this container is BPA free. I don't know why large BPA free containers are not easier to find yet but it's especially important for a long-term storage container. Also like every other I think the ability to store the spigot inside the container is brilliant. Note that there is a sticker over the hole in the lid that goes down to the "neck" of the spigot. If you are going to store this for a while or take it camping you may want to put a piece of tape over it to keep dust / dirt / bugs out after you remove that sticker the first time you use it.
Even brand new the container is *absolutely* odorless. The sides have raised graduations / level indicators. Every half gallon is labeled (with another in between, marking quarts) as well as each liter. According to these marks the container can hold a bit more than 2.5 gallons before actually being filled.
I noticed for some reason the dimensions of this container are...
I bought some of these in the winter, to haul water to one of the pastures that's too far from the barn to drag a hose. The handles are so shallow that I couldn't pick them up if I was wearing gloves. (and I have small hands, too.) After six months of daily use, the containers cracked around the handles, and got worse every time I used them. I was able to use them for a couple more weeks, since I only pick them up to load and unload them from the truck. I also bought two of the 4 gallon size. The design of that size is much easier to handle, but one of them came with a pinhole (a manufacturing defect) which grew bigger, like a bubble in the plastic. My husband was able to patch it, and I'm still using the 4-gallon ones. I'm replacing these smaller ones with Coleman water carriers. Don't waste your money on this brand. You don't get what you pay for.
I have this same jug in the 7 gal size and although they look similar this 2.5 is much thinner material, The 7 gal is bullet proof you can use it as a step stool even if its empty and the bleed/air valve is threaded with rubber seal (proper). This one is not close to that quality, a tapered plastic pin that pushes in? eventually either the pin will wear out or the orifice on the jug will lose its ability to seal. Not to mention if you are traveling with this full of liquid and it tips over you run the risk of this bleed valve to leak or pop open then your screwed. I would give it a 2 star but as the company offers a 5 year warranty, they claim to stand behind their product...keeping in mind that if the time ever came will they honor that warranty? I would have preferred to pay more and have the same quality as their larger model, thought thats what I was getting.
Short story of how I use this water container, I have a RO water system installed and fill...
