Feb 15, 2020 Dinuba Water Update: Cylinder and Jerry Cans

We received and reviewed the latest prototypes and both were approved with only minor modifications. We are ordering and testing the stainless steel we will use on both containers and are setting up for manufacturing. Our anticipated date for having product to sell is late April to May. We will again test the first few containers to come out of assembly to insure quality. This should go smoothly. We are nearly there, and we thank you for your patience.

The new 15 liter cylinder prototype image shows the container in the fully polished finish. We will also have one with a brushed finish center section. It makes a nice contrast to the polished top and bottom sections. This container is double walled for better insulation of the contents. This will also minimize sweating on the outside of the container. There were many challenges in completing this project but we are very happy with the result.

The Jerry Can will also have a number of changes from the original model. All welds on the new model are laser welds of solid butt joints. There will be no lap joints on this or any future model. Also the bottom is rounded and smooth inside and out for easy cleaning. The top section is removable with 6 clasps that hold the top and bottom together. This will also facilitate proper cleaning of the can since all internal areas of the container will be fully accessible when the top is removed.

We have also upgraded the steel to 1mm thickness for greater rigidity and better welding of the joints. The handles are solid stainless and not just a rounded hollow tube. This prevents any dirt accumulation in the handle that is difficult to clean. We have also added a receiver to the lower front of the jerry can that can be sealed with a screw in plug or can receive a spigot for easy liquid dispensing.

We will have professional product photos made for the new products when the first ones are completed.

Thank you again for your patience. We will take pre-orders shortly before the products are received and after we have calculated final pricing.
