Drinking Water Vending Machine-Rochester, NY

Putting this out to the hive mind. There are places everywhere in the southwest (and likely other western states) where you can take your own container to a machine and fill it with drinking water for a small fee.

I've also found such places in other states that are not in the west, such as Massachusetts and in Buffalo, NY (only 65 miles from me). I'm told there are some in Syracuse (about 125 miles east), but I can't seem to find any such machines in Rochester.

So I'm wondering if anybody knows of any. I've done online, real world, and app searches but keep coming up dry.

Out here in the west(California), a lot of grocery stores have those machines just outside their front doors.

All, or at least most, Walmarts have a water filling 'station' for 1 or 5 gal containers. They sell the containers also.

I know. I even said as much in my original posting. But that's not the case back east. They are much less common.

Thanks. I was not familiar with shop.water.com. Came up with a few new possibilities that I will go check out.

Appreciate it. I mostly avoid Walmart like the plague. OldWeb gave me a resource that points to a few possibilities that I will look into.
