    Well 9 years later and it still works great, so I'm going to call it good. I keep the valve assembly in a heavy ziplock bag in my tailgate so I actually can find it when I need it.

    Most non-state-of-the-art or top tier water treatment plants even in the States cannot adequately remove many pharmaceuticals, thus the estrogen mimics (and many others) are detectable in many fresh water sources as well...it's the world we live in.

    I use this one on my scepter. After a four day trip last week/weekend I think I'm done using it. The can leaks, the spout leaks, and I hate how the vent is right next to the spout.
    I think I'm going to try a Reliance 7 Gallon style https://www.amazon.com/Reliance-Pro...rd_wg=cEmtt&psc=1&refRID=FS11GVZTGMFGMFG874MM

    Those are pretty good, BUT, the vent plug will eventually break. This is my main beef with so many jerrys. A wire nut is a decent temp-perm fix though. :)

    I have that Reliance and the cube style Reliance can as well. Both caps and spigots have to be tightented like a mofo in order to prevent leaking, which puts the faucet almost horz vs vertical. Not a biggy but with enough teflon tape, I bet the orientation can be corrected.
