A water container can be found in a crate when sailing to Ungael during Dragon Slayer II. It is used to douse fires that appear on the Fremennik ship. It doesn't need to be refilled and has unlimited uses.
The model of this item appears to be based on the jerrycan, a common type of liquid container invented in the 1930s.
