This is a SOLAR water storage container
Verified Buyer Reviewed by HokieTrax from Virginia on Saturday, April 23, 2016
I didn't realize this until I received it and the solar thing was all over the packaging. The container is a translucent grey color designed to absorb the warmth from the sun. I don't want my stored water to be heating up. This probably would be good for heating water for dishwashing, bathing or an outdoor shower but for general storage of water, you wouldn't want this. Looks well made and comes with a spigot and two other tops, a plain top and then a pop-out type. The packaging showed the other regular versions in a blue color but Sierra doesn't sell them.
