5 Gallon Water Jug (w/o lid)
These very rugged 5 gallon jugs are made of heavy duty food grade virgin polyethylene and food-safe colorant. They're highly rigid and stackable, with stabilizing moldings to prevent shifting when stacked. Vent cap for small opening is included with jug (the vent feature comes w/o hole; pierce with awl or drill bit to use).
“Unlike the 35 and 50 gal barrels I was considering, these will fit into many locations around my house... will be ordering more in the future.”
– Gary W., IA
Cap for large opening is sold separately, see accessories below. Comfortable carry handle is molded in.
Rectangular shape maximizes storage volume in available space. We greatly prefer these water jugs over larger drums which are virtually immovable after filling.
The dark blue color keeps light out, and a dark enviroment helps control the growth of algae.
“This is a great water jug. I really like the square shape. It stacks well thanks to the built-in ridge lines. It sits firmly on a table top and is easy to carry. I recommend it highly.”
– Krista C., ID

By James G. in PA on 10/27/2016 - Verified BuyerBest price, fast delivery, great size and easily stackable. What else could you ask for? These are great for emergency water storage. I bought twelve, and I'll be buying more from Pleasant Hill.4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Patricia K. in OK on 2/24/2018 - Verified BuyerThese jugs are well made. They stack nicely and are an easy to store, compact cube shape. I wish they came with the lids, so don't forget to order those. Good quality for a great price!2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Kagey on 3/11/2017 - Verified BuyerAs advertised. Especially like the tamper-evident lid, though they could be a bit less expensive. Secure stacking in upright position only. Easily transported. Would buy more if I needed additional moveable water storage.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Greg C. in OR on 10/20/2016 - Verified BuyerI have used this water jug in the past from Pleasant Hill Grain. And have ordered more for two reasons. First is for water storage. I collect rain water for growing but my storage tank only holds 250 gallons, so I use these to store the excess water after it's filtered. The second is also for water storage of drinking water that I get from a bottled water company, thus saving money at $2.00/5 gal by using my own bottles. These are a great water jug that take up a small footprint in our storage area. Will be purchasing more soon.2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Charles E. in TX on 2/3/2019 - Verified BuyerI received the 4- 5 gallon water containers in a few days which is great, but when I filled them up 3 of them couldn’t be tightened by hand enough to stop them from leaking.
I am older and my grip isn’t what it used to be and having to have channel locks around to take off the caps seems to be a little over the top. If I’m not around I know my wife wouldn’t be able to access the water, not a good scenario.1 person found this review helpful. Did you?
By Ryan Hart, ID on 11/13/2017 - Verified BuyerI ordered 10 of these last year and then 4 more this year. The new ones are a different height and will not fit under the shelf I was counting on them fitting under.Moderator:
