Customer Reviews

I give this Reliance Products Aqua-Tainer 7 Gallon Rigid Water Container four stars for the following good reasons.
THE AUTISTIC WEREWOLF
We also noticed that the corners now dent very easily, making it just a matter of time before it cracks along the edges of the dent (see photos).

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.

We have been using these 7-Gallon Aquatainers for years. In the past, they were built much more heavily and could take the abuse of traveling along dirt roads and even rough jeep trails. We liked to bring two of these containers on our overland trips for drinking and cleaning up in camp.

On our last trip, our newest 7-Gallon Aquatainer just gave up and burst open, riding in a well-secured location in the carpeted bed of our truck. It's nice to have a container that holds so much water - until it breaks and soaks almost all the gear you store with it. In our case, we discovered the problem after arriving at a remote camp in Baja California. The container split and broke along the seam of the Aquatainer logo embossed onto the side of the container. We ended up having to spend an unplanned extra day at that camp while we dried out our gear and having less water than I'm comfortable with. We were lucky that the water didn't damage some sensitive equipment we had. Over the years, Reliance has made the plastic on these containers thinner and thinner. We also noticed that the corners now dent very easily, making it just a matter of time before it cracks along the edges of the dent (see photos).

If you are using these containers to store emergency water at home or in a static, stable location, they'll probably be OK. I used to recommend them to my friends for travel but I won't any longer. They've always had the issues with the spout leaking when turned on its side.

Our workaround on this last trip was to purchase a 5-gallon water-cooler service type bottle with a screw-top in the nearest large town. From that, we dispense water into a Rubbermaid 2.5-gallon drinking dispenser that has a recessed spout that never leaks. I think that the round bottles will be more durable. Plus, the round shape prevents wildlife (coyotes) from gaining purchase with their teeth to puncture the container - which had also been a problem with the Aquatainer.

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.
