You could try a hiking supply store, for portable/lightweight/compact water filter systems for "on the go..."

I guess you could buy a fruit juice, and pour it down the drain, rinse it, and use the glass bottle ( Snapple ), or buy a stainless steel one, and refill that.

I drink mostly tap water.

I love my stainless steel water bottle...it is 32 oz. I top it off whenever I'm by a water fountain. There are water bottle refil stations around here too (water fountains that have a setting to change the way the water comes out so it is easier to fill a bottle).

I hear you about avoiding plastic...I find it imparts a taste to the water regardless of the temperature. I can't imagine that to be healthy. :-)

I use stainless steel bottles because I'm clumsy/careless and I don't trust myself to carry glass.

I have some gallon sized glass pickle jars that I use for many purposes around the house, you could fill them with water and put one or two in your car for refills?

My mother in law got them from the retirement home where she works, restaurants would probably have them too.

1. they make pens that you can put in your drinking vessel and purify the water.
2. buy one of those plastic bottles that has a filter in it [odds are the company that you got your filter from makes one], fill up from whatever source you find, then once it has been filtered, store it in your glass bottle.
3. grocery stores have gallons and other sizes available to buy. most convenience stores seem to as well, but that might just have something to do with living in florida.

How about a stainless steel water bottle?

I'm trying to stay away from plastic in general. It can leach chemicals if it gets hot. I suppose I'm looking for a large glass bottle that holds more than 20 ounces or a high quality filter you can take with you places.

I agree with the others. I'm not sure what your problem is. I drink bottled water. When my bottle runs out at home, I refill it with tap water that is filtered through our system or water from our fridge. If I am at work then I refill my bottle with water from the drinking fountain.

Another solution would be to take bottled water to work with you or keep it stored in your home.

Does it have to be a glass bottle? Sigg makes a 1L bottle which is 33 oz. And unless you're out for 23 hours a day, you should still be able drink while you're at home too.

While you're out - water fountains, water coolers, faucets...

I'm not sure I really understand the question; if you need water, you get it from whatever source you have available to you. Faucet, even those evil plastic bottles everyone hates so much. A little extra trash trumps dehydration. Where are you "out" that water is not available?

So I asked in an earlier post on recommendations for a water filter. I was able to obtain one but now I'm a bit confused on what to do when I'm out. I'm trying to stay away from water bottles but the largest glass bottle I could find to fill up and take with me was 20 ounces. I'm not sure where to get water when I'm out and run out. I know I will run out of 20 ounces easily, especially since I'm supposed to get 64+ ounces a day. Does anyone know a solution for this? Thanks.
