      by fromIts OK I bought this to serve three purposes. 1) Store extra water in my appt for emergencys 2) Store water at the campsite 3) Haul water out to my deck to water my plants. This works pretty good for 1 and 2, but not really for three. Once it's full, you cant pour from it. It needs a second handle on the top/back to tip it. Also, when it is very full, the one handle on top seems to bow a bit, making it harder to carry. Loved the cap/spicket design. So I took this back and got the two handled, skinnier Reliance container. That one serves all three purposes and seems a bit more sturdy too.

      by fromPros and cons...mostly cons. This water container is good and bad. The good: 1) High volume: 7 gallons is nice because you don't have to refill it very often. 2) Versions of this container come with water filters that fit into the spigot. This is useful for eliminating sediment in the water; however, they don't filter bacteria. The Bad: 1) For transport, the spigot can screw into the cap so that the spigot is inside the container and in contact with your drinking water. One must be very careful to clean/sanitize the spigot because of this. 2) The spigot screws into the cap and, over time and use, the spigot will no longer be aligned straight up and down to allow good flow of water. In fact, my container now has a spigot that can only be screwed into the cap so the the spigot is upside down! This renders the spigot useless, in my opinion. 3) The plug for the air vent opens too easily causing spillage and introduction of contaminants during transport.

      by fromLove it I love the containers, we own 5. I would love to see that valve be retrofitted so you could attach a standard water hose to it. Attach a nozzle to it then you could use it as a portable shower as well.

      by fromGood product, [...] Replaces our well water for drinking, beverages (tea, coffee). I bought 2 of these in the 2.5 gall version several years ago. They are identical, just smaller. I fill them with Culligan purified water @ the local SMKT (0.29/gall). In both jugs the spigots levers have become increasingly difficult to turn. This morning I stopped short of breaking off the lever attempting to turn it. I've had the spigot apart twice to clean and found nada to clean. [...]. Anyone know of a safe food grade lubricant (silicon oil, vaseline) that might work?

      by fromUseful & durable I used to use the flexible/collapsible water containers for car camping & roadtrips, but those would eventually develop tiny holes. After going through 3 of those, I got one of these & found it very worthwhile. I also fill it at purified water stations and use it at home for drinking water. It beats the [$] price for the refillable 5-gal water jugs that they charge.

      by fromStores compactly, easily This container holds plenty of water, whether it's for camping or in an emergency. The spout also hides away easily, since it can be screwed on in reverse, within the container.

      by fromBEST VALUE IN WATER STORAGE USE TO STORE POTABLE WATER FOR HOME USE. CITY WATER SUPPLY IS LOW GRADE AND I MUST TOTE FILTERED WATER FROM MACHINE IN FRONT OF GROCERY STORE. THIS IS GREAT FOR THAT. A LITTLE HEAVY TO TOTE BECAUSE OF 7 GAL SIZE SO I JUST FILL TO 5 GALLONS. GOOD DESIGN, SPIGOT IS LEAKLESS, LARGE CAP SCREWS ON/OFF EASILY. I'VE OWNED FOR YEARS WITH NO PROBLEMS OR LEAKS. VERY DURABLE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

      by fromGreat for camping Easy to fill, easy to use. Good design with tap stowed inside during transit. Plenty of water for two people and a dog, for a long weekend.
