Water Usage

I was really worried about what our water bill would be, since I do cd laundry ever single day. We finally got our bill, its for 2 months and only $14.00, this is the first time we pay water anywhere, is this normal??

I mean, we dont use excessive water, 1-2 showers daily, 1-2 loads of laundry, 2 extra rinses, then normal dishes and handwashing.

There are 6 people in my house and our water bill is always around $35, so I think you're doing pretty good Mama

That's a fantastic water bill. Ours is about $150 for three months!

That's pretty close to how much we pay. During the summer, it's a bit more cause we have a pool we need to fill up but during the other times, it's approx $100 every 3 months. But I have not noticed any dramatic increases since I started CDing (about a 1 1/2 years). OUr water bill and electric bills are pretty much the same.

Re: Water Usage

I notice it varies by area and whether or not you pay trash or sewage with it as well.

Our water bill runs about $35 (but I read there is a new fee being added to it!) every three months. We don't have a sewage bill as we have a septic tank.

I so want your water bill lol. We have 5 in the house and ours is about $60 every two months in the summer and about $40 in the winter. Of course, this one will be higher because we just filled the kids' pool.

Re: Water Usage

Wow, that's so reasonable. Ours is super high just because all water is really expensive where we live. There's a contruction project going on right now to re-do how we get our water, and it will be much cheaper after that. I can't wait!
