H2go Bag for rafting?

I just saw this product, the H2go bag. It is a 20 gallon water bladder designed for use in a wheel barrow to get water to remote areas. It costs less than $20. I am trying to think if this could be used for water storage for rafting. Maybe half full and tucked between the frame and the floor? It would definitely keep the weight low in the boat. Not sure if it could work at all, but thought I would put the idea out to see if anyone could think of a good way to apply it to rafting.

It's a polyethylene bag, so I would think it would be suitable for drinking water.

Looks like a small ballast bag for a wake board boat.

They make 5-gal collapsable water jugs that I used early on. I don't care for them because they would leak or get stepped on or something and fail. If you're sold on a water bag, I'd recommend trying those. They'll be easier to handle and also if you get a leak in the 20 gal bag, there goes all your water, whereas if one of the 5-gal bags leaks, you've still got 15 gals.

Andy, thanks for the reply. I also use rigid 5 gallon water jugs, I was just tossing this idea out to see if there was a good use....doesn't sound like it.
