I just replied to the Link for Cheap Scepter Jugs post. It got me thinking about some of the best gear deals that I have found. So I thought I would start a thread about it.

Here is my favorite.

https://www.buylci.com/water-can-5-gallon.html

They are made and sold by LC Industries. LCI is a non-profit and are the largest employer of blind folks in the US. They are identical to Scepter. You can get two of them for $48 and free shipping.

I have purchased these containers from LC Industries and they have worked just as well as other Scepter containers purchased for a lot more money.

I really don't like those kind of spouts. That jug also has the snap-shut vent that I don't like. It actually just looks like one of the "cheap" water jugs. The opening isn't as big.


The faucet that I got from NRS (or maybe REI) attaches to the pour hole of the large opening on the beefy water jugs. You can then just leave the jug on its side. Flip the lever, and water pours. It helps to open the vent for larger volumes; speeds up the flow quite a bit. Then when you break camp, you can sanitize or at least rinse the outside of the spout and secure it in a clean spot so you aren't putting the outside of the spout INSIDE of the drinking water. That's possible contamination!

We use a sailboat Galley hand pump and it’s mounted to a separate cap. It’s works great and can be used on the boat during the day if needed.

Big surprise they aren’t cheap.

If LCI started making the spout/nozzle for the can, that would be a real win. If they started making the 2.5 gallon can, I would buy two of THEM.

Not cheap but the best price I have found for the 2.5 gallon.

I use a nozzle called a Water Bandit works fine slips on the spout of the Septer Cans.

I couldn't figure out how this would be better than just unscrewing the cap but paired with a cheap plastic garden hose valve seems like it would be perfect.
