Fill up the 9 liter container with water
Fill (2) of the 4 liter containers with the water from the 9 liter containers.
Pour the remaining one liter into the 3rd 4 liter container
The 9 liter container will now be empty.
Refill the 9 liter container with water
Fill the last (2) of the 4 liter containers with the water from the refilled 9 liter container.
Pour the remaining one liter into the 3rd 4 liter container ( You will now have 2 liters in the 3rd 4 liter container)
Again the 9 liter container will be empty.
Pour one of the 4 liter containers and the 2 liters from the 3rd 4 liter container into the 9 liter container.
You will now have 6 liters in the 9 liter container.
Nothing hits the floor.

Otherwise, there is another solution: Fill 2 9-litre bowls. (Total is now 18). Take out 4 litres from both bowls using the 4-litre bowl. Then empty those bowls. Now, take another 4 litres out of one of the bowls. Now you have one bowl with 5 litres, and the other with 1. Pour 1 into 5. Now you have 6 litres.

2. Pour 4 liters into 4 liter bowl (leaving 5 liters in the 9 liter bowl).
3. Empty the 4 liter bowl.
4. Pour 4 more liters into the 4 liter bowl (leaving 1 liter in the 9 liter bowl).
5. Empty the 4 liter bowl.
6. Pour the last liter from the 9 liter bowl into the 4 liter bowl (leaves 1 liter in the 4 liter bowl and 0 in the 9 liter bowl).
7. Fill the 9 liter bowl.
8. Pour 3 liters from the 9 liter bowl into the 4 liter bowl (this will fill the 4 liter bowl which has 3 liters empty space and leaves 6 liters in the 9 liter bowl).
9 You now have 4 liters in the 4 liter bowl and 6 liters in the 9 liter bowl.

Assume: A=4 size bowl and B=9 size bowl
Resolve: Arrive at 6
Fill B, leave A empty
Pour 4 from B in to A
Pour 4 from B in to A
Pour 1 from B in to A
Pour 3 from B in to A
...now can I drink?
