    Sofnolime "Jerry Cans"

    Anyone know a source in the US for the 4.5K Sofnolime jerry can twin pack?

    It's not necessarily like this is the way that I always want to buy and use sorb, it's more that I want the containers.

    For a time I thought about washing, sterilizing, and refilling actual kitty litter containers to have a single fill of sorb in the car (instead of needing to fill from the space consuming keg at the dive site when needed). Why a kitty litter container? Because I thought it would be funny is why.

    But then it occurred to me that there may be some leeching, gas permeation, or some other such undesirable reaction with a container not designed to hold such material.

    So, mostly, I just want the jerry cans themselves to refill.

    Or, if we have any materials peoples here who might know an appropriate container to store the stuff in?

    What about Nalgene bottles? Not the hippie/hiker/hipster type of Nalgene, but the labware type of bottle from before they found a way to sell millions of water bottles to college students.


    I couldn't find it on Nalgene's website, since they've gone total water bottle.

    We use these a lot in caving and sump diving. They're easy to clean when they get dirty and are very durable. I have about 10 of each size at home for storage and transporting other materials.

    I'd also reccomend Derrin drums.

    I still have the smaller "jerry can" type container I used when I did my initial rebreather course back in 2013 that I refill from the 20kg keg, I have found it very convenient to carry around sorb refills.
