What is a good sturdy container to used to hold water? I don't want to take up a lot of space so I'm limited to about 20 gallons. I've looked at the clear rubbermaid storage bins but I'm not sure they will be strong enough to hold water. The heavy duty rubbermaid containers are blue and I'm not sure they are safe to store water.

Any good ideas?

One good one I've seen used is one of those tall rubbermaid wrapping paper holders.....they have a pretty small footprint, not sure on the amount of water they can hold.

I actually use one to store my dog food in....for the dog of course. :)

Brute Trash cans from Rubbermaid are good. They are rated food 2 grade. You can get them at Home Depot.

a bought a 20gal brute trash can. It's the hard plastic type. The soft blue one will split when filled.

I get these from work in the 60 gal, 30 gal and 18 gal size. Its hard to beat the price and their built as good as anything your going to find.

I've seen the wrapping paper holder and they hold around 10 gallons. I need something with a small footprint that I can put inside my laundry room so it will not be in the way.
