Water Cooler Delivery Service in Sweden?

Recycling nightmare!

Hoping someone can help with this question: I am an American with a Summer House in Sormland, which doesn't have potable water. Every summer we end up using so many bottles of water that the recycling is endless. What do Swedes do if they need drinking water--can you get a service to deliver water cooler-type large capacity containers with spigots? Or can you go somewhere to refill your own containers? Help!!

Thanks in advance for any and all advice!!

I have honestly never heard of anyone not having potable water. Even small summer cabins in the sticks usually have a well with potable water, even though it may look old-school: http://www.cartinafinland.fi/fi/picture/80...anha+kaivo.html

I guess the easiest solution is to buy 20l plastic containers and fill them up with tap water at the nearest camping/neighbour.

Pay to get a well bored. It will put the value of your property up too. In the meantime, buy some big plastic jerry cans http://www.biltema.se/sv/Fritid/Husvagn-oc...med-kran-26442/

Sweden does have big problems with contaminated drinking water, in which the EU has been very critical towards. I don't think you will find many companies wishing to deliver to a summerhouse, so you will need to find other ways such as large storage containers or invest in a home treatment plant.
