but seriously, how much does water cost in MO.?

edit: i just looked it up, and from what i can see online, st louis charges 1.77 per 100cuft which would convert to about 2.25 for 1000 gallons. why not just use your garden hose and buy one less Bud after work, should about cover it.

Water is a little more complicated here. It is also tied to your sewer bill. The more water you use the higher the sewer bill. But true water itself is not that expensive.

if you are a customer of MSD and thier online rates are correct the sewer charge for the 1000 gallons of water would only be about $2.50. so you are talking less than $5.00 for the operation.

DOH!! No you don't want to be towing that tank around half full with no baffles to boot. I should think before I post sometimes.

Sorry Ash
