We go through a lot of gallon water bottles due to having a large and careless family. This one is okay, the only issue I have is the drinking hole is a bit small for my preference. It slows down the ability to drink, which in turn leaves me struggling to finish a gallon in a day, for the first time in years. On hot and/or heavy workout days, I normally consume 1.5 gallons as a minimum. Those days I still don't finish a gallon and its making me miserable. I'm buying a brand we previously bought.
