What I've seen online is that they will drink between 50 - 300 mL per day. I'm worried about the potential for bladder stones if he drinks so little. Other than giving him his lettuce floating in water, does anyone have any ideas how to get more water into him?

Change the height of the water bottle. Change the bottle or its location in the cage. Make sure all the veggies are very wet. Try syringing him diluted pedialyte (generic is fine) and see if he likes that. If he does, gradually decrease the amount of pedialyte and increase the water and see if he gets used to it. And good luck!

A few people soak a handful of high quality hay in water and offer it on a plate. Guinea pigs seem to like this! Another way of sneaking water into their bodies. One has to remove the hay in an hour or two because it will mold when wet.
Again, thanks again for the responses!
