Very poor - almost unusable for brewing

I thought a demijohn was a demijohn and not much to it, but apparently not. The problem with these is the necks.

I have other demijohns of other brands, and the standard bungs fit and they just work. These demijohns from Brew2Bottle have necks which are too wide for standard bungs. If you push the bung down with any firmness it would just go inside the demijohn and likely be irretrievable. I had to resort to wrapping layers of tape around the bung to increase its diameter. Even then it doesn't form a proper seal.

The additional problem is that the necks are not properly smooth and round inside. Where the tops of the "handles" join on each side, within the neck are large "craters". However you position the bung, you cannot form an airtight seal because of these. I currently have a brew that is fermenting very vigorously, but absolutely nothing coming through the fermentation lock. If I dribble water round the edge of the bung on the outside, I can hear it hissing as the carbon dioxide escapes that way.

This seems to be a product that's manufactured for display or interior decor purposes - perhaps as the base of a flower display - NOT for home brewing.
