Really great idea and design but if white strong and flex material is not watertight then how can peope use it for this?

Raymond, it doesn't have to be watertight does it? It's not designed to stop water flowing, but to promote it....

This is a fantastic design. I hope it was submitted to if not, sure as heck someone is going to copy it now.

Your style is unique compared to other people I have read
stuff from. Thanks for posting when you've got the opportunity, Guess I will just bookmark this web site.
Very smart idea. I love to see the power of 3D printing getting into genuine peoples minds. Looking forward to see more of those things (please, no weapons).

Note that is says "Nylon" not other materials such as white strong and flex.

Beautiful idea yet simple and clear. It's round in its perfect usefulness. I love it, just in the event you hadn't a feeling so far. ;-)

White strong flexible is Nylon

To be super accurate it is polyamide. Nylon 12

That is a truly awesome design. I love the fact that it takes advantage or the 3d printing bypassing manufacturing limitations with the rolling ball valve. Very elegant solution for reusing the jugs. Of course it's only useful for those who buy their milk/water in those jugs, but I still love it!!
