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.
