These containers are a good size and very easy to handle when filled with water. I would have given it a 5 star rating, but the design of the containers make it almost impossible to get all of the water out. I bought the spiket to use and the problem here is once the container is half way empty you have to tilt it forward to get the water out. The storage lid and spiket works great without leaking. I would purchase these again even with these design flaws I mentioned.
These are great containers- we purchased 10, which provides a great deal of water for emergencies, yet can be individually used for camping, picnicking, or to keep in the car. They are easy to move and use, as opposed to having to move an equivalent 35 gallon tank, and you can easily bring them to the water source. They are most practical if you also order a couple of spouts, which are separate. The one con, is that it is really difficult to completely empty the bricks, as the opening is in the middle rather than on the top or bottom edge. Overall, though, great purchase, and I highly recommend them. We rinsed them out with a quart of water and a teaspoon of bleach, rinsed them again, and then stored them with 4 drops of 8.25% Clorox, per gallon of water.
