    Homeowners, what's your water bill? and how many gallons do you use?

    where do you live?
    how often do you water?
    how long do you water?
    how big is your lawn?

    I have a well so there for no bill other than the electric to run the sprinkler system. I have been running the sprinklers everyday since late March, I useualy adjust my watering when all the tree leaves come in and shade the yard a bit. I then adjust each zone and then I set it back to 3-4 days a weeks. I also adjust watering when mushrooms start popping up.

    you can get a separate meter for out side water, and not pay sewer on that water.
    sewer is 70 % of a 'water' bill

    at my house

    no meter for outside source

    $3.25/1000gal for water and sewer is the same amount but is only 70% in the summer time.

    Regions vary, but one city about 5 miles aways only pays $.95/1000

    My water bill is about 25 a month. We are currently in a drought and have been asked to conserver water for about the last year. We have done such a great job of conserving they are now raising the rates since they are not making enough.

    outstanding.

    I drink a case of beer and use "recycled" water. That way I can sleep well at night, knowing I'm doing my part for the environment. :rolleyes:

    Just watch out for nitrogen burn...:cry:

    I hear ya, you can never get ahead. I just replaced all my windows with low-e glass, reinsulated everything, new furnace/hot water tanks, the whole works, just to save a bit of gas... and what do they do? dominion gas raises rates 15% like it was nothing.

    what time is the revolution again?:cry:
