ro/di h2o prices

Just out of curiosity, how much does your lfs charge for a gallon of ro/di water? I know many of you have your own systems, but i was wondering if my lfs was "in range"

thanks

I have a unit now but over a year ago my LFS charged $1 for RO and 1.50 for Salt. I'm sure its more now.

.20 per gallon for R/O
they don't offer pre-mixed salt (seems like a waste of money to pay $1.00 for a gallon of pre-mixed salt water)

I usually use the Mr.Water machine at my grocery store for .10 a gallon - RO/DI+UV
