How high did you fill it? I have read that on the rubber maids you have to stay about 5-10 inches from the top. The bottom is way stronger than the top. Same idea as using braces for long tanks to stop bowing.

Just under the handles. It burst on the side about a third from the bottom.

Happy Reefing,

Was it a BRUTE can? All BRUTE products are food grade. I have a 45 gallon Brute sitting next to my tank for my top off water. I fill it (sometimes over fill it) about once a month now (LED lights) but every 2˝ - 3 weeks for 2+ years. It hardly bows.

You may want to contact RubberMaid directly.
