Just stumbled upon this - ebay coupon code WELCOME5 will get you $5 off, making this water container cost you approx. $5 with free shipping. Drats, I missed it unless I order one more :)

You missed it :smileycat:. Scroll down...down...down....to a section titled "Competition"

Synopsis is this was a close tie for their budget recommendation over the Reliance Aqua-tainer. The felt this Scepter had a slightly funky/fragile pour spout and a small fill hole, but the pour spot seemed to actually pour very well (just potentially fragile).

I might paint one red and use it as a gas can.

I've had a couple of those Scepter water cans for a few years. They are basically the same thing as an old red gas can. It does not have squared sides, bloats when the liquid gets hot and is annoying when trying to pour a small amount of water. I've received one spot that wasn't manufactured correctly and had holes in it, but otherwise the water can...well, it holds water and doesn't leak.

EDIT: Think I paid about $25 per can. At $10 this is a great deal!

My water containers showed up today - unexpected 2 day shipping!

I like them. Seem plenty sturdy...a little thicker than the Reliance Aqua-Tainer. No complaints for $10!!!
