I think anyone who actually tries one of these totes will forget about doubts concerning strength of structure. They feel very sturdy!

I rolled the filled container over dirt and ruts and weeds - California scrub - it works fine.

My only problem is that when carrying it by the blue handle, the black handle falls free. This can easily be remedied by a bungie, but it seems like a pretty obvious design flaw. Maybe there is a latch that I missed.

Gigi, I filled the Hydroller with about 6 gallons of water and left it in the sun during the middle of the day for 5 or 6 hours. The water was warm at the surface only. Most of it was still the same temp as when it started. The weather was sunny and in the high 70s.

I'm wondering if all those that bought one could tell us how this is holding up after use ?

TIA

Could someone measure the diameter of the opening? Would one of the Coleman shower pumps fit down in it? If so I'm going to have to have one.

I believe these are also sold by Target.

Here's a link to Amazon. ($29.99 USD)

We just bought something that looked like that at Sam's Club but it was for gardening - liquid weeder/feeder. When you moved the wheels, it charged up the tank so that the squirter would work. Can't remember what it cost.

You would use something like that for your "shower" plus leaving it outside in the sun everyday, you would have warm/hot water for your sink too.

I am going to get a portable tank for my drinking water and, yup, after priceing the black water tanks with the wheels on them at an RV store it scared me then I saw these at Wally*world as we call Wall Mart and decided this was the way to go.
To be sure gonna get one before the next boon-docking trip and drop the suck line from my newly install 12V pump down to the bottom and use this.

Liz, yes, the shower pump fits easily into it.

I use it to pump water into my holding tank on the trailer from it.

Lauren showed me!
