Bottled Water Delivery

Shirley | Sep 14, 2009 10:36 AM

Just wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts on bottled water delivery.

I live in the Northeast (NYC and CT shoreline) and have had 5-gallon bottles of water delivered to my door for several years now. The cost of the water is $8.00 per bottle ($1.60 per gallon), and there is a $10.00 bottle deposit. The water is spring water, and not filted water.

I noticed that 1-gallon bottles of spring water at the grocery store are just under $1.00.

I do realize I'm paying a surcharge for convenience, but in a time where every penny counts, should I revert to lugging gallons back from the grocery store to have a few dollars a month?

Do other Chowhounders face this issue?

Thanks in advance for your response!
