A water source is any source of drinking water in RuneScape, excluding rivers. Players can collect water from specific sources, which are marked with an icon (Water source map icon), and must use a container to do so.

There are many different kinds of water source all over RuneScape, each bearing slight differences from others.

Water is used in many cooking recipes including pies, wine and bread. To get water simply click "use" on a container and then click on the source you wish to obtain water from.

Apart from the common water sources, members can also build a water source in their player-owned houses. With level 7 Construction, they are able to build a kitchen and a water pump in it.

To collect water, the player must be standing next to a water source. He or she should then use a bucket, jug, bowl, waterskin, vial or watering can on the water source.

All water containers of the type used with the water source will be quickly filled.

Water is also used when travelling through the desert in the form of waterskins. These can be bought from players or from the guard at the Shantay Pass.
