I've recently been buying my RO/DI water from Aqua Dreams for $1.00 per gallon. It's become a $10.00 a week habit for me, which over the course of the months I save up for an RO/DI filter will cost me as much as an RO/DI filter. What do you pay at your LFS?

i mgoign to start gettin some from puppy center, i think they give it away free

That would be pretty cool. Wish I had thought of asking while I was last there. :) Can anyone confirm this?

puppy center is free when your lucky enough to be the one to get there before everyone else, aquaticwild life in manchester has a very big system and is free the last 5 or 6 times in was in there worth the drive.

What kind of containers do you all use to transport water? I just go for the $.59 walmart water which I hear has impurities.

I went to home depot and picked up 5 gallon buckets with the tops pretty cheap and that is what I use.

You realize at ten dollors a week you could have bought an RO/DI unit yourself in two months, and would have saved a few hundred over the course of the year. Just a thought....they can be had for under 100 bucks

Thanks for the tip, capthtfd. I'm going to check them out as soon as possible.
drewdegenhardt, I have very limited space, so despite the long term savings, buying water is realistically my only option at the moment. I don't have access to the necessary plumbing. The people I live with, despite loving the tank, have only given me space where there is no feasible access to plumbing.
Furthermore, I took the part time job I have so that I can afford to make upgrades after two years of LFS advice before discovering RC. Maybe I should have bought the RO/DI filter first, but I'm pretty happy with the purchase of an AquaC Remora and better lights instead. :) I'm saving up for a Typhoon III (http://www.airwaterice.com/product/1TYPHOONIII).
Until I have the money, I need to find an LFS supplier. :(

You will be happy with the Typhoon III, it is a great unit. I have had mine for 6 months or so, and no problems whatsoever.
