No ,I think,and told you without no doublt.

    second,the former is need patience and skill,the later is need power and space.

THE CORRECT ANSWER IS 'BOTTLED-WATER CONTAINER"

The size is ususally from 11L to 18 L.

Please I am correct, the exact translation is bottled-water container

just a try

桶装水--bucket water; 井水--well water; 瓶装水--bottle water; 纯净水 purified water; 蒸馏水distilled water.

Maybe there are some other words which have the same meaning of 桶装水.

THE CORRECT ANSWER IS 'BOTTLED-WATER CONTAINER"

i think the key word of 桶装水should be water not container, and your translation emphasizes on container, this is just my point of view.
