We have a water bladder hanging behind the rear seat in our dual cab hilux, we drain it after each trip and use a solution to keep the water tasting nice. No problems with leaking, water tastes fine, it holds 50 litres. I bought it through the local ARB store.

Hi I purchased a barrier manufactured by from an Autosport store for my Hilux that does just what you need without too much hassle. Just make sure you select the right size when purchasing.

From our experience, its not a bad idea, especially in remote areas, to carry water in multiple containers. The quality of water that you can get will vary a lot. If you have one big container you then may have to put poor quality water in it if that is all that is available. For years we have carried a couple of 20 litre containers of good quality water that are a reserve supply, but for day to day use we use 10 X 3l juice bottles. That way good water is not spoilt by less good water, and if we have the small bottles full of poor quality water its easy to tip it out and refill them when better stuff is available. Works for us.

Cheers,

Val

Hi, We do the same as John & Val for the cooking & drinking water.
We write on the bottles when we fill them.
Take care, safe travels ma.

Similar here.

Up until today we had two ways of carrying water. 55 liters in a dual fuel/water long range tank under the car and some in 10lt white plastic water container/s in back of car.

Last friday we picked up a dual carrier Kaymar rear bar with a spare wheel carrier on the laft and a jerry can carrier on the right. We can now have another two jerry cans on the back for longer trips as needed.

I know with the wagons you can get a cargo barrier that fits behind the front seats.

We got a 60 litre bladder made up to our specifications. It works really well. We use it for our secondary water supply and have 45 litre stainless tank for our main drinking water.

Yep, that's the one we have. We also have a tank in the camper, and on outback trips take some smaller containers as well. It's a good point above about not risking contaminating your main water supply.
