    Question How do you get all your water?

    Hey guys! I was wondering how you all get the disstilled water for all of your CP's(that need it). I personally have to buy 1.5 gallon jugs of it every four to five days and it is getting expensive...Do you guys know any other way of obtaining/making distilled water a little more cheaply? I know of the glass bowl in the water pot trick but that seems like a pain to do. Also, would the "filtered" water from my fridge be ok? IDK!!! :/
    Thanks for any feedback and I am very interested in hearing about your responses!

    Oh, and I live in socal where it hardly rains so rain watee is hardly an option :/

    I buy my distilled water in bulk for $4.49 for a case of 6 gallons. Half pallet at a time. I buy it from our wholesaler, who then trucks it into my store, then I truck it home

    I am looking into a R/O system very soon though.

    Most people that aren't lucky enough to live in rain-saturated areas typically buy gallons, or they just get their own RO machines.

    What I've taken to doing, since buying 20 gallons a week of distilled at Wal-Mart was expensive and a total hassle, is getting empty jugs refilled at the local fish store.
    Now when I say fish, I mean like, aquarium, not market, lol. They sell RO for .50 versus the .90 at Wal-Mart.

    An option I looked into but just can't afford right now, is getting a large tank of water through a water company. It's pretty neat and way more efficient than RO. It'd be delivered and replaced as needed for fees, and in the longrun would be less expensive, but it's a matter of having a few hundred dollars on hand for that, versus the 10-20, ya know?

    Also, I've done what Jon has Our labs are on the second floor though and I'm way beyond the point of 2 gallons of water making a difference
