Review – Collapsible Water Carrier
|Description of Item||We have a 15 litre water carrier which you can squash flat. It’s made from flexible plastic, with a removable tap and a carry handle at the top.|
|How We Use It||We use the carrier to fill up our van’s tank with drinking water when we either (a) can’t use our hose or (b) don’t need to do a full fill – i.e. when we just want to top us with 30 or 40 litres of water. We have found there are at least four types of tap so far – 3 different screw sizes (the UK standard one, one smaller than that and one larger than that) plus plenty of taps with no screw thread. We’ve bought an adapter (from a Ferreteria hardware shop in Spain) so we can use the hose with two of the screw on types. We’ve not tried to get the hose connected to a non-screw type, and find it much easier to use a water carrier. Our van’s water filling point it flush with the van, making it hard to pour water in, so we cut the top of an ice cream tub into a foldable funnel, which works really well and stores flat.|
|What Do We Love?||
|And What’s Not so Great?||
|Our Summary||If you’ll be doing much travelling in Europe, especially outside of France (which pretty much has UK standard threads everywhere), get a water carrier. If you’re limited for space, one of these collapsible fillers is spot on. We’ve knocked off a couple of stars as the tap is just appalling.|
|Where Can I Get It?||We were lucky enough to be given our water carrier by friends. You can get yours from Amazon.co.uk Please note: if you use the link below to buy, it won’t cost you any more than buying direct from the site, however the site will kindly pay us some money for referring you.
