Default Eating normal, poops normal, not drinking??

I've had Allen about two weeks and he isn't really drinking. When I took him to the vet last week or so they checked him and said he was fine just that he might have a weird nose from getting sick on the ride home and he should eventually drink more, but his pee smells and i see dark urine spots by his wheel.
Is there anything I could do to get him to drink more??
I change the water every day and it's in a dish, I fill it to the top so i can see how much is gone in the morning and its very little.
I tried using faucet water because the bottled water wasnt liked but he still wont drink.
Tips?

You could maybe try a different bottled water to see if he'll drink more of a different brand. They can taste different (trust me), so that might help. If he won't drink more of any kind, maybe try putting a tiny bit of Gatorade in the water or something? Or 100% apple juice that you'd get for babies. Maybe a bit of sweetness or flavor will encourage him to drink more.
