I just keep a three to five gallon bucket of water ready for use when needed.
Unless you have temps in the house that are steadily above 80 degrees F, you should not lose more than two or three gallons per week.(three gallon bucket is easy to handle)
Would not count topping off tank for evaporation as water change however. Not sayin you would,,,but some folks do.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
