So I have some bad news regarding my Waterport. It cracked the night prior to my first trip with it !!! I went on a weeklong overlanding trip that included 5 days in the Mojave and I was really looking forward to use this thing. The night before setting off, I filled it with my garden hose and to my amazement it started leaking from the base. There are tiny cracks on the base of the tank along the mounting rail and it cannot hold any pressure. Even the water pressure from my garden hose is too much for it. It will hold water if I fill it from the top but will start leaking again as soon as I give it a few pumps via the built in hand pump. I really like the form factor and I have spent a lot on mounting it correctly (the plastic clamps that come with it are only good for one inch tubing and don't fit my roof rack). So I am going to return and replace the tank and give it another shot. I will update again and let you all know if it works.
