Leaking 2.5 Gallon Counter Top Water Container

Well, I learned a lesson the hardway.

This afternoon I went into the Vegas to get a RV book and noticed I had water ponding on the kitchen counter. I traced it to one of those 2.5 gallon water containers most of us are fond of buying for RV use - especially for coffee.

Don't know why it leaked as I had not opened it. But I do recall telling myself at the end of summer - "Self! You best leave that in the sink in case it springs a leak."

No material damage done but I sure wish I had listened to myself.

Wow, that sucks. I sometimes leave a Gal or two of drinking water in the shower.... that way if they bust they will drain away safely. I put down one strip of the anti skid shelf liner so they dont slide around. Easy to remove when you need to take a shower.

Lol. We carry drinking water in gallon bottles in the shower as well. Have had them leak before, hence the shower storage. We donít much trust campground water for drinking.

I'm glad that there was no damage, and the lesson has been well-learned!
