I give this Reliance Products Aqua-Tainer 7 Gallon Rigid Water Container four stars for the following good reasons.
THE AUTISTIC WEREWOLF
In the end, it is probably easier and more reliable to just store your water with the handle UP, and only turn the container on its side when you want to get water.

So I turned back up, put the spigot out screwed it back on, opened up the little air flow a little up top, but it still leaked.

We use these extensively while we are out doing field research. We love them because they hold a lot of water (7 gal), are stackable with each other (we carry about 10 or so out in the field) and are pretty sturdy. However, we have found that the spigot is poorly designed. The design is such that when the container is on its side you can just turn the lever on and off for water. Great idea. But the spigot has to be facing down for that to work. In some cases, when you twist the spigot on, you either have to over-tighten the spigot for it to face down or not tighten it enough. Over-tightening eventually produces a crack in the threading and there is no longer a tight seal and you end up with a leaky container. Not screwing it on enough obviously will also cause it to leak. If you are only using one jug occasionally, this is not a big deal. If you use them for high volume activities, just beware of the issue.

To begin with, this is a great idea. It's the perfect concept for small families who are in need of emergency water supplies for any short-term disaster scenario. The plastics used are BPA-free, making them better suited t long term water storage. I bought 2, figuring to use these only for drinking water, with additional containers dedicated to other needs. According to ready.gov, "A normally active person needs at least one gallon of water daily just for drinking however individual needs vary, depending on age, physical condition, activity, diet and climate." The 7 Gallon size, weighing about 55lbs when full, is pretty much the maximum size container you would want to move around when full; and theoretically, at least, the spigot should make it easy to use the water during your emergency. Here are my experiences using the Aqua-Tainer.

Out of the box, there was a pronounced plastic smell when opening the container. I had no time to do a thorough was with soap, as the storm was about to hit. I added several quarts of water to each of the Aqua-Tainers, and shook them vigorously for a minute or two. After emptying the water, most of the plastic smell was gone. The remaining scent was faint, reminiscent of the scent of a pool liner or pool toy in the summer. It was not unpleasant at all, really.

Filling the Aqua-Tainers was easy. They are only 16" high (18" with the spigot attached, approximately 11" by 11" in the other dimensions. With a slight tilt, I filled most of the container under my raised kitchen faucet and then topped it off using a pitcher.

Then the fun began! As noted by other reviews, the Aqua-Tainer uses plastic threading for attachment of the vent cap and main cap/spigot. As soon as I turned the container on its side, both leaked.

Excellent product. Sturdy and virtually leak proof. We use four of them for "dry" camping. One we painted flat black to use as a solar shower. Although heavy when filled, they take can take a good beating. The big advantage for us is the wide mouth. We can drop a DC shower pump directly into the container without having to lift it all of the time.

Our house lies right on the Wasatch Fault, and so I bought 4 of these as part of setting up our emergency preparedness kit. Even brand new, 2 of the caps were cracked where the spigot screws in, and leaked heavily. This suggests poor design (the plastic isn't thick enough where the thread acts as a stress concentrator), and so it is likely that in the long term the other two will fail as well. There were also leaks around the caps on the air vents on the other 2, so I returned all 4. When it comes to my family's survival after a major earthquake, I want a product on which I can rely absolutely, and I don't trust this one.

These are about the upper practical limit for one-person-portable water containers, weighing in at almost 60 lbs. when filled. Aqua-tainers are deservedly popular, being stoutly-made and having a very practical spout design with a nozzle that can be stowed inside the container, which is great for protecting it from incidental knocks when you're hefting it around your campsite, house, or vehicle. Everybody should have a few of these (or smaller equivalents) stashed away somewhere; you never know when you're going to need it.

I ordered one of these things and two of the smaller ones from Amazon. Of the three, only one had the gasket installed on the large white cap. Unfortunately for me; I waited too long to test them for leakage in the pouring position.
Suggest anyone ordering these make certain the gasket is installed. Otherwise the cap will leak when the unit is sitting in the pouring position.

Sturdy enough to last in outside storage but not sturdy enough to be stackable. We had two stacked and the one underneath ended up collapsing in the corners causing the top container to fall and lose all of its water when it fell on the spigot. I bought them specifically because of the claim they were stackable, as we don't have a lot of space in our apartment, only to be disappointed. We have them lined up outside by the front door and they seem to hold up without being stacked. The containers seem very sturdy and rigid but once filled with water, the sides of the containers bend when you push against them. In short, I found the price pretty reasonable but the claim it was stackable not true.
