I used restaurant food storage containers (they stack well, and I needed them clear) and a float valve, have it plumbed into the water lines (city water, with excess fluoride.)
Water comes in the top chamber, filters through, comes out the spout. Works VERY well, I have been running it for 7 years or so now.

Ingenious setup! I especially like the float and the plumbing. Beats having to pour buckets of water into something that high.
