  • 5 gallon bottles - OC area

    Anyone have any ideas on where I can buy some 5 gallon water bottles like the ones Mark is carrying in the picture above? I live in Orange County, CA.

    I figure they'll give me something heavy to lift and serve as earthquake supplies.

    most grocery stores should carry them, I think costco has the best prices for them if your store carries them.
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

      You could call any office water supply company and ask if they have any that are too beat up to use and destined for the garbage - tell them your intention and they might just give 'em to you.

      Remember that water weighs a little over 8lbs per gallon, so a full 5gal container weighs (including the weight of plastic) about 42lbs.

      You might want to wrap some grip tape around the handles, too - they're not the most comfortable for extended periods.
