Water do you use a month? About how much does that cost you on your water bill?

NO clue. The ONLY good thing about well water.
Does cost us a ton in drinking water.

funny you should ask that -- the bill came today and its a REAL sore subject with me. we used about 17,000 this past month. that includes everything that takes water (laundry, yard watering, cooking, toilets and bathing) for 5 adults and three kids. that is well below what we were allotted but still, i hate to waste any water.

Thankfully we have well water, I would be very afraid of what we use.

We just had a meter installed this past Thursday. Our city has been charging a flat rate for water and in a few months will be switching over to metered water. So right now I don't know but they told us that the flat rate price is based on 6,000 gal a month. I guess we'll see. It seems like I am ALWAYS doing laundry so that has to use a ton of water

We use roughly 5200 gallons a month. roughly 88 bucks a month for us. That also includes other things in the bill though. This is with 2 adults and 3 kids.

Ours is covered in the condo fee we pay per month (this is for things like landscaping for trees, grass, leaf cleanup, snow cleanup), any exterior maintenance (they had all new shingles installed last year) etc. I couldn't even begin to imagine the cost for the 6 of us.
