There are millions of water fountains all over the world, that use plastic jugs on top of the fountain, that holds the water.

Hi Tino,

Do a search for "portable POTABLE water tanks", like so:

portable potable water tanks - Google Search

The site for Plastic Mart looks like they may have what you want.

Bonne Chance,

Sergei

Look for a water carrying bladder vice a tank. If you are carrying that much water then it's nice when empty to have that room back for other stuff. Farm supplies will have them. Walmart carries water "cans" - plastic like fuel cans - but potable water safe so no need to guess. I think they are 5 gallons each with a spigot on them.

I use 3 of these in the back of my truck. I can lift one at a time up on top of my propane tanks to syphon into the water- fill on the trailer. Works pretty good and they are cheap.
