Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5
Rated 2 out of 5 The concept is a great idea, being able to clean out the container with the wide opening, but it's hard to thread it. I must have tried 3 times the first time, with it leaking each time. I don't think it was worth the money.

I shopped around online for similar products and all had really high shipping costs. When I found these containers on Walmart online they fit my price point, and offered free shipping to my nearby Walmart location; great value. Once I got the containers they were exactly what I needed, containers to always have good pure drinking and cooking water for my family. I fill them up at the local grocery store outdoor vendor for $0.25 per gallon.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cheapdude2 Heavy Duty but cap hard to remove to refill
We bought to replace some 2 gallon clear plastic stackable Rubbermaid units no longer in production. Those lasted about 4 years - actually still good but inside a bit hazy from use so figure get something new. This a good value for the money, heavy duty. But:
1. unlike our old ones, the spigot on this unit is 2-3 inches from bottom, so to emplty completely need to tilt while pouring. Probably 1.5 gallons at least left below spigot point.
2. our old one had refill cap on top, so was not water tight fit and easy to turn and remove. This one the large end cap with sigot is also refill point, so VERY tight and sometimes hard to rotate off to refill. They did mold in notches on cap to help get a good grip, but small hands or limited strength will have trouble refilling this puppy.
Been using for about a month, refilling 2-3 times a week with filtered water. No leaks yet.
Probably not the best for routine home use, but would be great for camping, boating, etc because handle and construction is very durable.
Rated 1 out of 5 by SomeGuy6786876 Leaks
I was looking for a water and milk storage solution where I could then use the product at the counter top or refrigerator. This seemed like a great idea, but it fails at the simplest task needed -- don't leak.
When you take off the large cap you can see the rubber (?) ring insert. On two out of the three that I ordered, there was a deformed gap in the ring. When I filled the unit with milk it would bead at an edge and then drip from the bottom. Further on the third one, it dripped from the tap as if the tap would not seal.
My hope was to fill with milk and freeze and then allow it to thaw and serve in the fridge. The handle is nice and the plastic is thick and sound. However, there are better products than this one, and I would suggest you try anything from the two gallon tap containers in the grocery store before you buy this.
Thank you Walmart for the painless return.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WhiteCollarMich Great product!
Compact. Handle makes it easy to carry. I filled it up immediately at Wal-Mart's Culligan refill station.
