I bought this cooler for cold liquid storage while working outside in the Texas heat. It does a great job keeping the ice all day long. Of course, it lasts longer if you keep it in the shade. + The white interior doesn't stain easily when filled with colored liquids (red or blue gatorade). + The rubber button on the nozzle is good quality and has endured the Texas heat and abusive use. + It is easy to clean. No hard to get to nooks or crannies. + Built in handles are strong, comfortable, and have no moving parts to break or malfunction. Two complaints: 1. It doesn't have a vent, so you'll need to unscrew the lid some to allow air inside to remove the suction (vacuum) in order to pour out liquid. 2(A). When you unscrew the lid, the insulating capacity of the cooler is greatly reduced. I'd say the ice lasts half the time it would if the lid was kept tight. 2(B). If you don't remember to close the lid tightly at the end of the day it will blow off if riding in the back of your truck on the way home. - There is no lanyard to keep the lid attached to the body of the cooler. Suggestions to Rubbermaid: Add a one way, sealed vent (to allow air in when a suction occurs) on the lid and also include a lanyard on the lid. The lanyard could perhaps attach at the lid as part of the vent hole, and maybe tie onto one of the handles on the cooler body. I own two of these coolers and am happy with their performance. I own two because the lid blew off the first one and I was in a hurry to use the cooler and had to buy another one because the lids are only available through Rubbermaid and I didn't have the time to wait for the replacement to arrive. The customer service reps at rubbermaid are wonderful and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy when ordering replacement lids.

Replacement parts and terrific features

By six pack

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rubbermaid 40 qt. Water Cooler:

I bought this product a long time ago and love it and use it all summer long. When the spigot began to leak I was worried that I was not going to be able to use it. Calling Consumer Service Dept. was wonderful and Jasmine the representative was helpful beyond belief.

A Life Saver!

By KiwiCath

from Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand

Comments about Rubbermaid 40 qt. Water Cooler:

Brought this whilst living in Texas and filled for stormy weather [pumped own water] then when I immigrated to New Zealand brought many Rubbermaid items with me. This container [along with several smaller RM ones]was a lifesaver following a major earthquake in Feb 2011 when our city was devastated . We lost sewer, electricity and water. Tankers were brought in so we could fill containers - this was when it came into it's own! My RB coolers saved our frozen goods for several days so we didn't have to cook everything at once [on the bbq].

Lid Issues

By mike4333

from Ponoka, AB, Canada

Comments about Rubbermaid 40 qt. Water Cooler:

Awesome all round cooler except for one thing. The lid. It has blown off multiple times on my travels and was lucky enough to find it every time except the last time! Now looking for new lid. This seems to be a problem for more than just me after reading these reviews.

Same issue as many others, not leak proof :(

By jarom1976

from Boise, ID, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid 40 qt. Water Cooler:

I love the cooler itself, and hate how much it leaks. I often will wrap it with several beach towels when we go on a trip and they are completely wet by the time we get there. Have you considered designing a retro-fit rubber ring that people could buy to make it leak-proof? I would buy one in an instant if you did.

I have used it a lot , but lost the lid on my last trip. Could I get a replacement lid and how much? It blew off on the back of the truck.

Does the job-poor quality

By HBGuy

from TN, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid 40 qt. Water Cooler:

Received the product and tested with water. Unfortunately, the spigot was cross-threaded on when it was assembled and it leaked horribly. Luckily, I had a spare and was able to fix the issue. Would have expected better quality for this price.

Leaks

By puzzled8

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about Rubbermaid 40 qt. Water Cooler:

Shocked to find that the lid does not seal to prevent leaks. What good is a cooler if you can't keep the liquid inside? A screw top lid would be ideal if it actually sealed the cooler. I should have looked up the reviews before purchasing one. I'm taking this back to the store to return it.
