One reason for choosing this particular container was it’s larger-than-typical size, 7 gallons. I like this one because of its spigot design which uniquely fits inside the cap for storage, which prevents it from becoming lost and is protected from damage while in storage or transit. It’s heavy duty material is the final reason I chose the Reliance model Aqua-Tainer water container.
In addition to knowing how to purify water, you should also have a good drinking water filter and drinking water storage.
Even if you live nearby a water source, you will still need to be able to transport it to your home, and the containers to use while doing so. For a sole purpose of storing lots of water at home, large barrels seem to be one of the better solutions for sure.


I too have switched to the 5 and 7 gallon containers like the ones shown and from Wal Mart. Also, there is a filter for the Aqua-Tainer also made by Reliance that would handy to have in case you are forced to use the container for questionable water. I accidentally left three Aquatainers in my garage last winter filled to the top with water and the caps on. Although I was initially looking for a 5-gallon heavy duty water container (40-pounds filled), I can still handle this 7-gallon container at 56-pounds filled (water weighs 8 pounds a gallon). There are all sorts of good water containers to choose from, and this particular Reliance Aqua-Tainer is one of the many good choices you might consider.
Having 7 gallons provides a one-week supply at the recommended water storage of 1-gallon per person per day.


Reversing the spigot for normal operation is simple, and the water flow spigot lever feels heavy duty and doesn’t drip.
I spot check the water and containers each year during rotation, and have not had any issues with them.
