A white coloured bucket with green lid and black tap, this Oxfam Jerry Bucket is an improved version of the original 1998 design and is established worldwide as a standard, safe water container used by many relief agencies including Oxfam, the UN and the Red Cross. Intended solely to carry and store safe, drinkable water, as opposed to a multi-purpose bucket, it has a 14 litre capacity. The bucket, lid and cap are made of high grade, UV resistant, virgin, high density polyethylene (HDPE), providing a tough and durable container particularly suitable for use in hot countries. It has a high-gloss finish and a curved interior base to wall join for easy cleaning, with curved edges to prevent dirt and bacteria from accumulating and a smooth, exterior base with no injection moulding ridges to ease transportation on the head. It has a robust, flat handle made of virgin, low density polyethylene (LDPE), an enlarged opening within the lid to ease filling by tap, pump or spring, has a snap-fit cap and rim-lock lid to provide a tight seal preventing contamination and/or exposure to pollution and is stackable in columns of 20 for efficient pallet storage. The polyethylene tap provides control over pouring the water in a safe and hygienic way with no wastage and slots into the bucket through a small hole, near the base.
