Can I get a replacement cap for my Aquaroll?

If your Aquaroll has a cap which measures 58mm in diameter your Aquaroll was manufactured before 1992. Unfortunately we don't manufacture caps for these Aquarolls anymore.

All Aquarolls manufactured after this date feature a 80mm filer cap, which will fit onto the current 29 litre, 40 litre beige, 40 litre silver Aquarolls and all models of the Wastemaster.

How to setup your Aquaroll ready for Camping

In this short video James shows how easily the Aquaroll can be setup ready for camping or use on an allotment, by using the official Aquaroll stand and tap.

The Aquaroll stand is a available in two sizes and has been specifically designed to suit our products. The stand holds the water carrier above ground level enabling use of the tap without lifting or tilting your Aquaroll. Simply remove the handle, place the Aquaroll on end, fit the tap, hold the stand in position against the Aquaroll and using the small handle lever the container over onto the stand.

The tap easily screws into the end cap of the Aquaroll, allowing you to dispense water with no hassle.

How to store your Aquaroll

At the beginning and end of every season make sure that you throughly clean your Aquaroll before storing it away as this is help stop any unwanted odours occurring. We recommend you that you only use bicarbonate soda to clean the inside of your Aquaroll. Add four heaped table spoons into an empty Aquaroll. Then fill the Aquaroll full of water. Swill it around then leave for 24 hours.

Ensure you allow your Aquaroll dry out throughly before storing it away for your next trip. Leave the caps off to allow the entire barrel is dry on the inside. Once the Aquaroll is dry screw the caps back on then your Aquaroll is ready for storage. You can store your Aquaroll in a bag as this can help prevent damage to scuffs to the inside of your caravan.
