    How many gallons of water do you use a months and how much do you pay for your CPs?

    I refill a 5 gallon container with distilled water about 3 times a months

    Totaling at 6 bucks.

    What about you guys?

    Sorry revised the title, I forgot to specify my question.

    Depends on the season for me. If its extremely rainy, I dont buy any water and use around 1 gallon per month. 2 gal if plants are thirsty
    Other than that if I do buy water, its about a dollar for distilled.

    I collect rainwater form a 55gallon rain barrel, which is only an option during warmer non-freezing months.

    The rest of the year I buy distilled water in 1 and 2 gallon jugs for about 90 cents per gallon from Meijer and Walmart. Probably use about 5 gal/month.

    Because my water source is Hetch Hetchy, which has extremely low ppm, I spend $0 on water because I don't need to buy distilled water. Per month, though, I probably go through 60 or 70 gallons, maybe more. Gotta keep the Sarrs happy

    Outrageous! And they said it couldn't be done....

    I use a minimum of 15 gallons of RO water per day, so multiply that by 30 = 450 gallons a month - probably half that from November to April, when the fogger uses far less (comes on less often). I have no idea what it costs me per month to generate that much water, but basically its the cost of electricity.
