Do you have a workout space at home, or favorite outdoor spot for exercising? If so, FLUIDSTANCE‘s Fillup™ is a convenient personal Water Tower™ that you can keep nearby for your own supply of fresh water whenever needed. At 70 ounces, it provides a full day’s supply of hydrating water, and Fillup’s double-walled tank keeps it cold for 24 hours. Fillup can actually be used anywhere: on your work desk, in your kitchen, in your garden, etc. Its minimalist design is BPA-free and made with eco-friendly materials. Enormous bonus: cup included, and you can save 4 plastic water bottles per day.
