I bought this jug to fill with purified (reverse osmosis) water for my fish aquarium. For the price I paid (about 20 dollars), I must admit I expected a better product. The plastic is very thin and the threaded lip at the top was chipped right out of the box when I got the bottle. This small defect did not seem like a big deal at first, but later, I realized that it caused the bottle to leak unless it is standing upright. Finally, after I bought this jug, I discovered that the Giant grocery store near my house carries 5-gallon water jugs (filled with purified water) for less than $7. If I had it to do over again, I would have just bought the one from Giant, used the water, and then kept the jug, saving the shipping time and about $12. So, bottom line, I wouldn't buy this product again.
