I don't think the "stock" meaning of "führen" is very common in German, it would be more clear and understandable (and less confusing as well) with "verkaufen", isn't it?

"verkaufen" quite directly corresponds to "sell".

I don't see any other translation for "stock" than "führen". Even if "führen" is not too often used in this way, it still seems the right translation to me.

Probably "Beide haben nur selten Wasser", "Both of them have water only rarely" might be used more often.

"Beide bieten Wasser nur selten an" = "both offer water only rarely" ?
