Question for Scepter owners-I purchased three water jugs las September and used them for a trip. I got them from Walmart Online for what I thought was a good price and all are marked Scepter Canada as they should be. When I got them they had a very strong resin type oder inside that persisted for a very long time. I never really noticed any taste in the water but was not thrilled with the smell.

Is this common for these cans or did I buy some good knock offs that are not of the same material/quality. How does one tell?

You can wash the container with water and beach .

Haven’t noticed this with any of my Scepters.

Sensitivity to smells varies greatly between individuals. To my nose, Scepter MWCs have the same standard polyethylene smell that the old fashioned Nalgene 1 liter water bottles (canteens) that they sell at the hiking store. Like you, I smell it but cannot discern a taste in the water.
