I am planning on buying all of my RO from my LFS for the time being. Right now I only have two tens and a future 45 gallon. How much would bottled water be? Because I can get RO for 30 cents a gallon at my LFS. That is something to look into for sure though.
Bottled water would be more than 30 cents/gallon. But remember for RO, that you'll have the costs of additives and hauling.
You'll probably gonna want to ramp up filtration/purification so as to minimize, as much as practical, the volume of weekly water changes.
