Hi folks- I'm new to the area, living in Hatboro and I have a question I haven't been able to get answered via standard google searches. Is there anywhere to refill 5 or 10-gallon water jugs? When I was living in Seattle, grocery stores had machines to refill water jugs, but I haven't encountered this at the couple of supermarkets I've visited in my area. Any guidance would be much appreciated, thanks!!

They had that years ago at Acme but I'm guessing it wasn't popular so they did away with it. You can check places like Whole Foods and Wegman's but I kind of doubt even they will have it. The warehouse clubs (BJs, Costco, Sam's Club) have programs where you exchange the empties for full ones - might be the closest thing to it in this area.

Wal-mart that sells groceries may have a refill station - but the prices are high

Check home depot too...they sell the 5 gal jugs

I can't swear to it, but Whole Foods in Abington might do this. I'd call first, though.
