Containers for Recycled Water

If you are interested in getting free recycled water from our Recycled Water Fill Station, you have to bring your own containers. The maximum fill per trip is 300 gallons. There is no limit on number of trips.

Container requirements:

  • Must be a minimum size of one gallon
  • Must be specifically designed to hold liquids (e.g., no trash barrels!)
  • Must have watertight lids
  • Must be secured for safe transport

Central San does not endorse any particular brand of container, but here are some ideas (not to scale):

Please Note: Water is heavy! Ten gallons weigh more than 80 pounds; 100 gallons weigh more than 800 pounds. When driving vehicles with such heavy loads, expect less stability and be sure to allow for additional stopping distance.

We do not sell containers. Depending on your needs, you may be able to find something at a local hardware store. Many people have also used Craigslist, EBay, and Amazon to find containers.
