Hi All! So, I spent the last year buying gallon jugs of distilled water from Walmart. Making "special" water trips, carrying 12 gallons up 23 steps to my place, having too many empty gallon jugs to get rid of and the cardboard boxes that held 3 gals. all over my kitchen 'til recycle day every 2 weeks, etc...(you get the picture). Paying .83 cents per gallon and I don't even have fresh water kits to test with. Anyway...I took the plunge and bought a nice 5-stage RO/DI unit from Marine Depot, all good. Now, mind you, I'm the landlord and live in my 2-family house. Rent for tenants INCLUDE water. I'm paying water bills of $400. to $500. every 3 months. I made my first 3 gallons of RO/DI water with the waste line filling up my washing machine. The washer is full and I don't do THAT much laundry!! (LOL). Of course, I need more water! What in the world do you guys do with all that waste water?? It's Winter time, please don't say to water the lawn or garden and if I bathe our Cockerspaniel and Basset Hound THAT much, they'll drown! Hopefully, I can get some suggestions for homeowners that pay a municiple water/sewer bill. Thanks in advance.
