I looked at those at Walmart (thicker plastic)-$18.00 each! Pass. BPA free or not, I don't trust plastic anyway to not leach into the water.Those gallon water jugs do have a limited life span--I found that out the hard way. I had bought them in 3 gallon cardboard cartons, and stacked them. After a couple of years I think it was, they started to leak...in the boxes. Well, that was a mess, and a major disappointment. Fortunately I had only about 3 or 4 of those 3 gallon cartons, so the loss wasn't too bad, but I learned my lesson about using those gallon jugs for long-term water storage--don't.
Don't know what an alternative would be.
