Details
Vials of water are used in Herblore, and are always in demand on the Grand Exchange. They are much cheaper in the shops than on the GE, so a profit can be made easily by buying vial of water from the shops and selling on the GE.

With the addition of Bomb vials that can be bought from Jatix in Taverley and Lady Meilyr in Prifddinas, one can significantly increase profit at little to no time cost.

1. Teleport to the Taverley lodestone and head south-east to Jatix.
2. Teleport to the Prifddinas lodestone (must have completed Plague's End) and head north to Lady Meilyr.
3. Use the Lighthouse Teleport (must have completed Horror from the Deep) and head upstairs to Jossik.
4. Use the Juju teleport spiritbag (must have completed Shilo Village (quest)) and head west into Shilo Village to Obli (general store). For a faster route, if you have karamja gloves 3, use its teleport and walk south from the gem mine.

Profit can be slightly increased by buying white berries, limpwurt roots, and unicorn horn dust as well. It takes nearly a week (6 days and 16 hours) to get stock back up to 40 vial of water packs.
