tipping that water from your jerry
Here's an idea from Mark & Annette for getting water from a jerry without
lifting it each time or fitting one of those plastic taps that screw into the
side. These taps are vulnerable & quite often make it difficult to fit the
jerry into a rack or pack it inside the trailer itself.
Mark & Annette came up with an easy idea of fitting a caravan hand water
pump to the lid of a plastic jerry. They go on to say..................
We fill up our jerry's with a hose running from the water filter on our kitchen
sink at home when packing our camper. In camp the red lid comes off the jerry
and the lid with the pump & hose goes on.
This water is used for boiling the billy & drinking only, we have 140 litre
water tank in the camper & this
is used for all other aquatic activities. We take one or two water jerry's
depending on where we are going & length of trip etc. If we have shopping
facilities nearby or are travelling we only take one jerry, as its easy to buy a
couple of 10L casks (water I mean) from a supermarket or roadhouse to fill
it up mid holiday and packing one less jerry is a good thing.
thanks to Mark &
Annette for this information
