And yeah, you kinda have to drill the can to have the float valve work. It's one 1/2 inch hole and thats it. It goes towards the top of the can as well.
I can drill the 5 gallon it's not that big of a deal was just checking. My plan is to have my 32gallon storage on my patio and use 5gallon buckets to fill it and then when I need the water use 5 gallon buckets to transfer. I know it sounds like a ton of work but it's really my only option. My problem is because the way my apartment is set up there is no hose hook up on my patio and so I have to have the 32 out there its my only place and the sink in my kitchen is closest but the water pressure is terrible! And so I'm left with the sink in my bathroom which is fine but I can't run a hose from there to the bucket through my living room which is carpet to the patio.
It's a lot of work I know but it's what I gotta do
