Aquaroll Size 29Litres Or 40 Litres

Hi,

I got an aquaroll after not having one for years and am going to put a tap on the end of it. I'm going to be getting a stand for it but don't know if it's a 29 litre or 40 litre one. Is there any way I can measure it other than pouring loads of bottles of water into it whilst counting them?

 

Thanks!

Hi Mechs, Found this on a caravan accessory site

 

Water Carrier 40l Aquaroll

  • Dimensions - 400mm wide over tyres x 500mm long

I should imagine the 29L Aquaroll will be considerably smaller.

The bigger one had a screw cap on the side the smaller one does not.

I agree. I have both sizes.

Easiest and best way to check so no need to do measurements etc.

I have the small which I think is heavy, so I would not go for the large one myself.

The 40 litre is more versatile, having a cap in the side

it can be used with a torbeck valve and hose or in a cradle.

thanks, no cap on the side so looks like it's the smaller one. I've had loads over the years and never thought anything of it!

Can anyone advise what size aquaroll fits a Truma water filter,? I have found that a 29 litre has too small an opening?

Depends on how often you wish to go to the tap to fill the aquaroll.

I think you may have quite an old barrel on that case.  I believe newer ones have the larger size inlet holes to accept a larger pump.  I had the small hole type in about 1980.

I think there are two sizes on the 29l, one being the same size as the 40l.

 

I'm sure there is a thread here where it is said that some 29l aqua rolls have a cap on the side

Correct on both counts.

 

 @TJM  NB1 Aquaroll is only one brand of rolling water barrel,  there are others with the wider neck/cap size.  

NB2 Many on here have dispensed with the filters on their water systems.  (I'm one IMO they are bug breeding places, and a money-making scheme for the filter makers/caravan dealers who will replace at a service for an extra charge.).
