    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Reliance Jumbo-Tainer Water Container - 7 gal. is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good option We have been using the Reliance Aqua-tainer for years, but wanted a different shape for more packing options. This one gives us those options. I noticed reviews about leaking, but decided to try this anyway, and mine did have a small leak around the large cap, when I first filled it up. I fixed it easily. My findings: inside the cap is a large nylon perimeter washer, whitish ( like plumbing drain washers). Tightening the cap forces the washer onto the jug. Notice the jug has a flat surface to seal against the washer. But notice carefully, and there are "ribbons" of material around the perimeter of the flat surface. I used a razor blade to carefully cut those off. Be careful not to cut or damage the flat surface that mates with the cap washer, otherwise you might create leaks. After I performed this task, the cap no longer leaks. I also used the Teflon plumber's tape (I use the better blue tape instead of the common white) around the spout threads because it lubricates the threads and provides a better seal. I don't find I need to over tighten either the cap or the spout for leak free performance...and I can align the spout in the vertical position much easier. Highly recommended doing this. The air hole could be better. Once you pull it out of the hole, it is very hard pushing it back in. I whittled the plug a little and may drill the hole a tad larger so I don't need to hammer the plug back in. Not a major problem, but it could be better. One last idea. I find water coming out of spouts to be rather "spluttery" - instead of say a nice stream. I use a copper plumbing reducer which fits perfectly over the spout and improves the stream. It is nothing more than a 3/4" to 1/2" reducer and costs a buck or less.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Spigots are good ideas, poorly executed I own two of these containers and 1 of Reliance's Aquatainer designs. All have the same lid equipped with spigot and the same poor design. The housing for the spigot needs to be reinforced to prevent splitting with use. Of the three cans I own, 2 have split and the lids no longer hold water. One, I did overtighten, but the other split simply because I use it frequently. Long story short, these are good containers for storing water, but don't buy them for the spigot unless you plan to replace them frequently.
