Hey Aklogcabin.
I have those 5 gal water containers in your pic in the woodstove thread and the gaskets have gone bad. Do you know where I can find them?

Hello Dave. I don’t know. But I know I am looking for new spout for the junk that our government feels I need to protect myself from myself. Spills all over place. I just went to using a siphon hose. The one with the brass ball in the bottom.
I was thinking of cutting some new ones out of some of the softer rubber food grade products out. My beautiful wife n daughter replaced some roll up cookie sheet things so I may jack them. So I can fill the generator they use or water jug .
Good luck n stay safe.

I don't know where to get gaskets either... maybe get some gasket material and cut your own.

I solved the problem of useless new spots. I bought a small pump designed to pump gasoline... cheap one but so far I have pumped well over 50 gallons with it and still going strong.

HERE is the link to it on Amazon.

Are you talking about the blue water jugs with the hard white plastic cap and spout?

I have been useing these military jugs made by LCI/Sceptor for about 5yrs now. They use no gaskets and dont leak. I have also left one at camp and it froze solid with no I'll effects. Also new caps are available on amazon.
