The Pro Quip 22-Liter Black Water Jerrycan is manufactured to the highest specifications by the same Australian factory that produces them for the military forces of Australia and NATO. This jerrycan is constructed from food-grade HDPE (high-density polyethylene) that is BPA-free. The HDPE is UV-stabilized for extended outdoor use and the opaque nature of the materials used inhibits bacterial growth within the jerrycan. The can will never rust and is about as bacteria- and mold-resistant as practicable. The can does not leak and is very strong. A removable petcock stores inside the cap to protect the petcock against damage and loss. The Pro Quip Water Jerrycans have shapes, dimensions, and features very close to those of the NATO Jerrycans and stack similarly.

The Pro Quip Water Jerrycan Opener is a combination tool for both the main cap and the bottom bung. The Opener is useful for those with low hand strength or arthritic hands, but can also be used by anyone who just wants to make things easier. If you are fond of using your Water Jerrycan as a water tank with faucet, then the Opener's ability to drive the bottom bung will be especially useful for you. The Opener's bit fits the bung perfectly and will prevent it from getting mangled by using the inappropriate tool to drive it open and closed.

Quantity Add to cart

The ARB Double Jerry Can Holder holds two jerrycans on top of your roof rack. The Holder is compatible with both Wavian Fuel NATO Jerrycans and Pro Quip Water Jerrycans, and you can mix and match jerrycan types in the Holder. To obtain that perfect fit with different jerrycan types, a series of rubber shims is included and the clasp is screw-adjustable. The clasp may be locked with a padlock if desired. Easy mounting is where the ARB Double Jerry Can Holder is superior to other designs, and the Holder will mount easily to ARB roof racks, Safety Devices or other racks with 1" tubing, and to solid roof rack flooring. The basket is multi-slotted to let the basket adapt very easily to different tubing dimensions. The mounting carriage bolts and brackets are included. Powdercoated steel construction.

 

Wavian NATO Jerrycans

You probably carry your spare fuel in your NATO Jerrycans. These cans are so good that the original German design from the 1930s really cannot be improved upon (and many have tried). These cans are pretty much the only way to fly. Carrying water is quite different, as there are many excellent ways to carry water. In fact, there is probably no single way that is "best" or even "better" than the many excellent methods out there.

Wedco Water Jerrycan and Spout

For many years we carried our water in the Wedco Water Jerrycan. This worked acceptably well. This system certainly never leaked. However, the Wedco Water Jerrycan was prone to rusting inside because the food-grade paint used to line the inside of the can did not reach every nook and cranny (and there are many) inside the NATO Jerrycan. Once the carbon steel was exposed to the water, the can started to rust on the inside. The water was still potable, but barely so, and we used the water mostly for camp chores rather than for drinking.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Blue Water Jerrycan (3216)

A superior way to carry water in the jerrycan format is the Pro Quip Water Jerrycan. This 22-liter jerrycan is constructed from food-grade HDPE (high-density polyethylene) that is BPA-free. The HDPE is UV-stabilized for extended outdoor use and the opaque nature of the materials used inhibits bacterial growth within the jerrycan. The can will never rust and is about as bacteria- and mold-resistant as practicable. The can does not leak and is very strong.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Black Water Jerrycan (3215) Pro Quip 22-Liter Blue Water Jerrycan (3216) Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

The Pro Quip Water Jerrycans are available in black, blue, and olive drab colors. Just get whatever color you like.

Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

The Pro Quip Water Jerrycans have shapes, dimensions, and features very close to those of the NATO Jerrycans. Some of the differences (like the single handle) are necessitated by the material used, but most of the the other differences are mainly based on optimization of transportation and storage of water versus fuel.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Blue Water Jerrycan (3216) and Pro Quip 22-Liter Black Water Jerrycan (3215)

Like the NATO Jerrycans, the Pro Quip Water Jerrycans are designed to be space-efficient. The Pro Quips will stack, and the undersides are grooved to mate with the raised ribs on the tops of the watercans.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Blue Water Jerrycan (3216) and Pro Quip 22-Liter Black Water Jerrycan (3215)

When stacked, the upper cans will not rest on the caps and damage them.

Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

Like the NATO Jerrycans, the Pro Quip Watercans have an octagonal cross-section for greater structure and rigidity.

Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

The Pro Quip and NATO Jerrycans have nearly identical widths, i.e., when laid on their sides the two jerrycans have almost the same height.

Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

The Pro Quip and NATO Jerrycans are nearly identical in height.

Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

The Pro Quip Watercans are slightly wider than the NATO Jerrycans.

Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

The Pro Quip Water Jerrycans have two caps, one main for filling and pouring and a breather to open for glug-free pouring.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Blue Water Jerrycan (3216) Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

Both caps are the thread-on type,

Pro Quip 22-Liter Blue Water Jerrycan (3216) Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

and are tethered to prevent loss.

Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

There is a petcock attached to the main cap.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Water Jerrycan Petcock

The petcock unthreads from the cap for attachment to the Water Jerrycan's body.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Black Water Jerrycan (3215)

On the bottom of the Water Jerrycan's body, there is a white plastic bung.

Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

The bung and petcock have the same thread and are interchangeable. The threads on the petcock and jerrycan body are both timed so that the petcock will point downward when it is tightened enough to be liquid-tight.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Blue Water Jerrycan (3216)

If you want to use your Water Jerrycan like a dedicated water tank with a faucet, just thread the petcock into the body and open the breather for smooth drainage. While not as convenient as those water containers with an integral petcock, this system is much more durable and more liquid-tight. Even recessed petcocks are susceptible to damage and they certainly leak more than a bung.

Pro Quip 22-Liter OD Green Water Jerrycan (3214)

The petcock does not extend below the bottom edge of the Water Jerrycan to prevent damage to the petcock.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Blue Water Jerrycan (3216)

If you don't want to lose your bung, it will thread into the main cap.

Pro Quip 22-Liter Blue Water Jerrycan (3216)

Threaded to the main cap, the bung can't be lost and it stays clean.

Pro Quip Water Jerrycan

Before transporting your Water Jerrycan, switch the petcock and bung and put the petcock back on the main cap. If you store the petcock somewhere else, it will probably get lost eventually and it will certainly get dirty. Keep the petcock with the jerrycan and it will be there the next time you need it.

Pro Quip Water Jerrycan Opener (4087)

A handy tool for the Water Jerrycans is the Opener tool. This is a combination tool for both the main cap and the bottom bung. The Opener is useful for those with low hand strength or arthritic hands, but can also be used by anyone who just wants to make things easier. If you are fond of using your Water Jerrycan as a water tank with faucet, then the Opener's ability to drive the bottom bung will be especially useful for you.

Pro Quip Water Jerrycan Opener (4087)

The main cap is attached to a tether to prevent the cap from getting detached from the jerrycan and lost.

Pro Quip Water Jerrycan Opener (4087)

To use the Opener, undo the tether from the main cap,

Pro Quip Water Jerrycan Opener (4087)

and that will give you access to the main cap for tightening or loosening with the Opener. The main cap does not have to be especially tight to seal, so the Opener's great length and leverage will really suit those with low hand strength or arthritic hands.

Pro Quip Water Jerrycan Opener (4087)

Perhaps the Opener's greatest virtue is its ability to drive the bottom bung open for when you want to use the Water Jerrycan as a water tank with faucet. The narrow end of the Opener is a bit that fits the bung perfectly.

Pro Quip Water Jerrycan Opener (4087)

Use the box end of the Opener to drive the bung open and closed.

Pro Quip Water Jerrycan Opener (4087)

The Opener will prevent the bung from getting mangled by using the inappropriate tool to drive it open and closed.
