    I use my mouth. 60% of the time it works everytime. As far as counting the ounces? I'm no help on that front, I just drink.

    Tap water (well water in my case), with those cups they give away with protein powder. They measure 20 oz. I no longer use the protein powder but I use cups, at least 5 a day. Plus I drink other things like Kombucha and honey tea.

    I drink out of a 500ml water bottle that I refill from the water filter on the fridge.

    I just turn on the tap, fill a glass with water and drink it.

    Personally I refill my water bottles several times before throwing them out. You don't have to get a new one each time.


    Turn on tap, refill bottle. At home, I have five bottles that I keep in the fridge full. When I finish a bottle, I fill it up, put in the fridge, and take out the next one.

    I refill a 24 oz insulated cup with filtered tap water. Because I want to track how many times I refill it - and my memory is getting worse the older I get - I keep 3 rubber bands looped around the cup. The day starts with all three at the top of the cup and I move one to the bottom with each refill. I'm easily a entertained :)

    Water filtered through the refrigerator. When I'm at work, I'll buy SmartWater.

    Honestly, I've never thought of one type of water being any different to any other water. I have a 700ml bottle, a cheap plastic one that is designed to be reused. I fill it straight from the tap before I go to campus then if it gets empty on campus then I'll fill it there, from the water fountains, all of which are in the uni building called Fountains, funnily enough. It's the building that houses the library and the coffee shop so is where I spend most of my time anyway.

    I've always thought water is water is water. I'll just drink when thirsty and never really think about it. I prefer it colder but really, that is the only consideration I have ever put into it.

    I have glass water bottles from Costco for when I'm out. They don't leave a funny taste if you leave the water in the car (summer here is 95+ every day).

    As for reusing plastic disposable bottles...eww, if they're not washed.

    I have a 32 oz bottle I bought at the grocery store. it has a pretty wide top, a screw off lid that has a smaller cap that flips up (attached to the lid). I fill it with ice water about 3 times a day.

    I use a water pitcher with a filter and keep it in the fridge. I use a reusable to go cup. I measured out exactly how much water it holds and how many ice cubs I put in. I do exactly the same each time. My ice cubs are 15 ccs each and my water bottle holds 16 oz. So 15 x 7 icecubes plus 16 oz. That's just what I do. I only had to measure once and keep using the same cup. I only measure water. Tea milk soda coffee I don't count as my water intake.

    At home it is on tap and at work its filtered. I refill the plastic bottles and typically have one chilling while I am sipping the other.

    I use a suitable container for drinking out of such as a water glass, a coffee cup, a travel mug, a paper cup.... basically I use a cup of some sort. Why make it complicated?

    As far as am concerned any fluid counts as water. That could be soup broth, (in which case I guess I use a bowl instead of a cup) coffee, tea, juice, milk or even actual pure unadulterated H2O.

    Because I want to measure it.

    Yes well... I know that my water glass is 16 oz, my favorite coffee mug is 10 oz. my other coffee cup is 6 oz, my travel mug is 14 oz.... I can math. Plus for myself as long as I know I am getting 64 oz or more most days I don't get too hung up on exact numbers with water.

    My way of drinking water is unfortunately expensive, but I drink a lot of water this way :) I drink LaCroix sparkling water. LOVE LOVE LOVE it, and I can't seem to drink enough.
