Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect to hold temperature I use the coolers as hot liquor tank and mash tun for home brewing. They hold temperature great! A little trick, pre-warm the cooler with hot water to help nail your brew day temperatures. January 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Leaked first use This product is not for internal car transport, the valved leaked immediately, tightened it with wrench from the inside and it still leaked when full. I bought this because my old 5 gallon igloo did not have a srew top, and thought the screw top would prevent accidental tip leaking, but the top even leaks when tilted a bit. maybe good to fill on location but not for camping trips were you depend on water. I will be taking this back and looking for another option. Lost about a hafl gallon of water in an hour. Picture shows the leak trail after a half hour. March 9, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 5 gal water jug the lid does not seal up and doesn't seem to get onto the threading on the cooler itself. therefore it leaks when carried or any other time. It's a pain in the butt. February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Cooler I purchased this cooler for my landscaping crew and it was perfect. Water stays cold all day and the crew really appreciates it. Also I think the Home Depot logo is sharp and looks good on the back of the truck. June 7, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poorly Made! I purchased this product this evening to use for my son's birthday party this weekend and it had the "BONUS Cup Holder" inside. Curious about the type and size cups I could use, I looked the product up online only to see the reviews regarding this cooler leaking. I immediately took it to the bathroom tub to fill it and at about 3.5 gallons the cooler started to leak where the valve attaches to the cooler not the spigot. Extremely disappointed at the quality of this product and very sad that this cooler didn't meet my expectations. Will be taking it back and looking for another brand. May 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purchase ever! I bought this water cooler and it ended up leaking Half of the water on to my floor after only 4 hours! I had to put a huge pot underneath it when I left for work and apparently it want enough because my carpet was soaked when I came home. The spigot leaks from it's seal. What good is a water cooler that doesn't hold water? judging from the other reviews i wonder why home depot would sell such a terrible product after so much bad feedback. DON'T BUY IT!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Holding out hope Purchased today and due to iffy reviews filled it with water started leaking within 3 minutes. Will be exchanging tomorrow to see if this problem is isolated or just complete junk. The sad part is this cooler used to be the benchmark for others to reach. May 19, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad buy Leaked as soon as water was filled to spigot area. Will return, very disappointed, August 6, 2014
