Glacier Water has provided neighborhoods throughout North America with great tasting, affordable water for over 30 years.

Founded in 1983, Glacier Water’s mini-bottled water plants can be found in neighborhoods throughout North America.

By combining advanced filtration systems with excellent service, Glacier Water provides a necessary alternative to packaged beverages.

We believe great tasting water doesn’t need a great big price. We’ve invested in about 23,000 small bottled water plants. And since we’re not delivering pre-packaged water, we don’t need a fleet of big delivery trucks to get that water to you. By drinking Glacier Water, you get great tasting water, save money, and help protect the environment.

How do I clean my refillable bottle?

Reusable plastic bottles require maintenance to keep them clean and to ensure your water is always fresh and tastes good. We offer the following maintenance tips and suggested care:


  • Store your water bottles in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
  • Avoid washing bottles with soap; soap leaves a residue, which may not rinse out.
  • Use bottles specified solely for drinking water. Do not reuse plastic milk or juice bottles.
  • Rinse out bottle after each use and allow to air dry.
  • Replace stored water every six months if not consumed.

Sanitize Your Bottle:

  1. Fill your empty bottle with water.
  2. Disinfect/sanitize the bottle using a few ounces of vinegar OR ½ teaspoon (a few drops) of unscented liquid household bleach per gallon of water.
  3. Swish the mixture and allow it to stand for approximately three minutes.
  4. Empty the bottle and rinse well.
  5. Allow bottle to air dry completely.
  6. Recap clean, dry bottle for the next use.

Freshen Your Bottle:

After sanitizing your bottle, you may wish to freshen it by mixing one tablespoon of baking soda per ½ gallon of water and shaking capped bottle. Pour out the solution. Rinse the bottle well, air dry and recap to keep it clean for next use.
