It's not a strap its a metal pole, it's not meant to carried - it rolls along the ground

Not for me but seems very cheap, comparing online

You pull/roll the water container along the floor.

I can see that now, wasn't sure on the tiny picture and the deal link doesn't go to the item. I'm not really a camper so I've never seen one of these before, I can imagine it wont be very good to use in a muddy field though.

Well in that situationi you would carry it via the candle on the container itself.

It's got a candle as well???!!! Must get one ......!

I know I've got a 40 litre aqua roll and it didn't come with a candle. gutted.

Its probably not one of the ones I read about, but some students saw the problems of carrying water in remote rural areas in Africa and similiar countrys and they designed a water carrier which looks the same as this but the movement (rolling) of the barrell puts the water through a purification system so that after a fairly short (short for over there) distancew the water is fit to drink. Brilliantly simple idea. Another piece of useless info I thought I might impart.

Not strictly true..

40 liters weighs 40kg. As 1litre of water = 1 kilogram. You might like to state in your answer that tap water contains impurities and this might change the weight by 0.000001Kg

If you are attempting to be a pedant, please put some effort into it. 1 Litre of Vienna Standard Mean Ocean Water (which, despite its name is pure distilled water, and is the best stab at a standard isotopic mix) has a mass of 0.999975 ±0.000001 kg at 3.984 °C and Standard Atmospheric Pressure. ;-)

Water good deal!

Again, not strictly true!
Temperature has a much bigger effect, at 30C 40L would weigh 39.828Kg as opposed to 40Kg at 4C (pure water)

Any good for Jehova's Winnesses? Our stairs run straight to the front door. They'll never come back!

Can't believe nobody has mentioned that this is essentially an " aqua roll "
Yes a metal handle and you roll it along. Good price if it is an exact copy.

More accurate using standard temperature pressure, atmospheric pressure won't affect like temp will

brilliant deal. even second hand they aren't that cheap

Cheers for that comment, that swayed it for me, the possiblity of dragging an extra 0.000001Kg around has put me right off buying this. I wonder how much it would weigh full of beer?

Speaking of camping/caravaning looking for an electric hook up if there's a deal anywhere

Just a note from a caravanner who has some experience with these things...

The industry leader for these things is a company called "aquaroll" and they've been making them for donkey's years. There are plenty of cheaper imitations as the proper ones are pretty expensive (£50, iirc)....

...but, the proper ones are nearly indestructible! I've got three (best not ask!) and one at least is 20 years old. And they are still in excellent condition despite bring used in all conditions and chucked in the garage when not in use.

For comparison, my dad bought a cheaper imitation one....and it didn't last a season. It was noticeably flimsier and had to be handled with great care to avoid cracking it. He took it back to the shop and swapped it for the real thing...which is still going strong.

As with everything on this site, be aware of what you're buying and that "cheap" may not mean "good value". The Aldi one may be ok, but I'd want to have a good look at it first before I passed judgement as, if it's a decent quality aquaroll copy, it'll be the first one I've ever seen!

there was about 10 in knotty ash this afternoon

These will not be in every Aldi and may not be the same price in those that have any stock left. Manager's discretion applies.

None of you academic types appear to have taken into consideration the weight of the carrier itself in your "around 40kg calculations".

That probably has more of an effect on the overall weight than impurities, temperature or the day of the week :-)

reading through this is hotter than the product..#banter at it's finest

Why load water if u can load beer?
