How it Works
Filtered Water Refill Stations
A network of filtered water refill stations installed in public places where customers can dispense clean filtered water into their reusable water bottle for between $0.01-$0.03 per ounce.
Download the Instream Water app
Using a debit or credit card, Apple Pay, or Google Wallet, load money onto your Instream Water account.
Using your smart phone or one of the Instream Water kiosks, transfer your account balance and dispensing preferences directly onto your smart bottle or band
Place your smart bottle or band on the fill platform at any Instream Water kiosk and we will recognize you, your account balance, and your dispensing preferences. Fill your bottle and walk away and your account will be debited by transaction amount.
Smart Bottle and Band
Our smart bottles have embedded RFID chips that will store your encrypted account information including your account balance and dispensing preferences. When you use your smart bottle at any Instream refill station, our software will recognize you, your account balance and the volume and type of water you prefer (sparkling or still). Simply press "FILL" on the touchscreen and your preferred type and volume of water will be dispensed and your account balance debited by the transaction amount.
If you have a water bottle that you love but still want to use the effortless transaction feature at any of the Instream Water kiosks...No problem. Just slip the smart band with embedded RFID chip around your bottle and you can use your own bottle at any Instream kiosk.
Choose between ambient, chilled, or sparkling water and select the volume of water you typically want dispensed.
Transfer dispensing preferences and your account balance directly onto your smart bottle or band.
Track how much water you have dispensed from any Instream Water kiosk and how many single-use plastic water bottles you have saved.
