Using a 5 gallon water bottle to decreases the waste created by using (or reusing) smaller individual water bottles!

If you buy bottled water to drink at home or on the go, you will prefer the convenience of a 5 gallon water bottle. These larger water bottles have many advantages beyond the fact that they obviously they hold more water than the standard one gallon water bottle.

A lot of people don’t realize that most water dispensers that fill single gallon jugs also fill water containers of 5 gallons or more so you can easily fill your bottle with purified clean drinking water. They are convenient whether camping or at work… you can even use it in your home as a source of drinking water.

5 Gallon Water Bottles are Extremely Versatile:

  • You can attach a spout to the bottom for ease of dispensing water.
  • You can use a hand pump on the top.
  • You can even turn the bottle upside down on a water cooler for use at home or the office.
  • As a bonus, for camping or sporting events, you can choose a collapsible 5 gallon water bottle that folds down flat for easy storage and then expands to hold enough water to keep the whole team hydrated.

When shopping, you should look for sturdy construction so the bottle will last a long time. Also choose one with a handle. When filled with water they are fairly heavy as five gallons of water weighs about 40 pounds. A handle makes it much easier to lift the bottle on and off the filling dispenser. You may also want to consider style, as being able to clearly see how clean and pure your water really is, they are usually more visually appealing than standard water jugs. If it will be sitting out in your kitchen, you want a bottle that looks good for the space you are filling as well.
