We have two self-fill locations to serve you:

Ozone sterilization is automatically included with every self-fill, however, ozone will not clean dirty bottles. Pre-wash all bottles with soap and hot water before arriving.
Pre-Order Bottles and Drums
We highly recommend pre-ordering your bottles and drums. Many retailers run out of containers during prep week. Please specify your expected pickup date in the Notes section of your order, and be sure to read our Refund Policy before placing a pre-order online.
New bottle purchases are sanitized and filled with your choice of Purified or Alkaline Water. They will be ready and waiting for you when you arrive.
Drum purchases include a Purified Water fill for free. Alkaline Water is available for an additional fee. Drums will be sanitized and waiting for fill via hose in the back of the store when you arrive.
RVs are filled via hose at the back of the store. We have Tap, Purified, or Alkaline Drinking Water available.
Tap Water: $.40 / gallon
Purified Water: $0.50 / gallon
Alkaline Water: $1.50 / gallon
Planning for Filling and Transportation
Pre-Order pickup and RV/Drum filling is located in the back of the facility. Please position your vehicle to the right or left of the door, but not directly in front of it, so we can fill two vehicles at the same time. Do not block the entrance, and keep the ramp clear of possessions.
We are very busy the week preceding Burning Man, and there is often a line. Set aside at least one to two hours for your fill. Prepare your vehicle ahead of time, and know where your water intake is, so that we may keep the line moving.
Important Note for Water Drums
Drums are extremely heavy! Make sure your vehicle can handle the weight.
Place drums over, or in front of, your rear axle to provide balance. Pre-designate a final location for your drums, and leave a clear path to this location, in advance of your arrival. Otherwise, you will be asked to clear your carefully packed belongings out of your vehicle, and repack them to make space if necessary.
There is no smoking allowed behind our store. Restrooms are available.
Please see our Refund Policy before placing your order. We will be placing our inventory order on August 14, after which refunds will not be available.
After Burning Man
If you do not plan to store your bottles and drums for future use, please recycle them. We do not accept used bottle/drum returns.
Bottles and drums may be easily and quickly recycled at:
Waste Management – Sage Transfer Station
1391 E Commercial Row
Reno, NV 89512
