Almost the perfect midsize jug,
This review is from: Reliance Products Desert Patrol 3 Gallon Traditional Jeep Style Rigid Water Container (Sports)
The 3-gallon size is nice - easy to lift and pour, and multiple jugs are easy to pack in a car, but the factory spout gasket leaks (replace with 1-1/2" drain gasket) and the vent is in the wrong place - causing a truly full jug to weep at the vent plug. Come on, Reliance, move the vent plug to the sloping part of the handle! Once modified, it is a nice unit, but it should have been properly engineered in the first place.

How did you modify it? Was it easy to do?

Mine also leaked like an open hole. I used a small round inner tube patch by slime. Basically a scab. I punched out a hole in the middle with a leather punch and put a little rubber cement on, lined up the patch and viola,no more leak. The leather punch is slightly smaller than the hole so it seals when the plug is in. Harder to get back in but worth it.
