For those unfamiliar with the scheme, see
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Refill_(scheme)
Note that this is a REFILL scheme, not a "Can I have a free glass of
water?" scheme.
I.e., you bring your own bottle.  At participating locations you can walk
in, not buy
anything, and have your bottle refilled.

And is probably over-complicating things to the point this goes nowhere.  I
think
there is merit to mapping participants in the refill scheme and that it
isn't
very volatile.  All the other stuff about free glass of water, is a bottle
provided
(not for free, it won't be), is it a glass or carafe, etc. is volatile and
whimsical
(up to the owner of the establishment, depends how nicely you ask, phase of
moon, etc.)

If we end up with a tag for a refill scheme, I'll vote for it.  If we end
up with an
"All the possible ways of getting water, containers, and possible payment"
scheme, I'll probably vote against.
