We don’t use much water in comparison to being in town, but it’s nice to not be tipping the big jug every time we need a cup of H20 to quench that powerful backcountry skiing thirst. So I rigged up a chunk of plastic tube plumbed into a container in the loft, draining to some brass plumbing parts over the sink. One of our easier projects and works well (easier, other than humping the water jugs up the ladder to the loft).
