I’m going to buy one as soon as I get some extra money. You can probably make it on your own but this guy has several of them so I’m sure he’s built a durable water can.
For the price I think it's worth it just for the convenience factor alone.

I have messed around with pressurized cans, 12v pumps, siphons, etc. and in the end returned to the tried and true - a simple gravity fed spigot.

This is a commercially available water can with bung and removable spigot that threads into the bottom of the fill cap for storage, but I have done the same thing with Scepter military water cans by drilling a hole and using a standard brass spigot.

This is the Front Runner version of the same concept:

I have the waterport. Got it from Costco with a bunch of accessories for $170

It comes with a pump cap to pressurize it manually. Also has a valve for compressed air.

I usually just fill it with a hose and it self pressurizes since the unit is fully sealed it takes on your water supply's pressure.

You can mount it to a hitch or to bars with the supplied mounts. I use it a lot to hose off my kayak gear or kids after a day at the beach.

My love/hate relationships with various camp showers has led me back to the same simpler is better philosophy underlying my choice of a gravity fed spigot for my water can.

I have owned a Zodi "Hot Tap" hot water shower for many years, but due to its bulk in relation to utility it now resides in my jeep trailer. For camping without the trailer I use a Simple Shower. $12.99 + one empty 1 l. or 2 l. plastic bottle. Cheap, compact, and easy to use. Just fill the bottle halfway with cold water and add boiling water from a pot on the stove . A 2 liter bottle is more than enough for a camp shower, but I find the 1 liter bottle easier to hold so I keep my pot of hot water handy and re-fill the Simple Shower to rinse off. If operating from a fixed camp I set out a solar shower bag during the day and let the sun provide the hot water for afternoon showers with the Simple Shower.
