Looking at some properties in the Kingman area and seeing a lot of use of hauled water. Living in FL I can't imagine this, so I figured best to ask those who know first hand...
How often do you normally get your supply, how much water would you get at a time, and how much does it cost??
This would be for a "normal" home - say a 3/2 with 2 people. (and some cats
Do you have to worry about say, changing a 40 gallon fishtank? Or taking an extra long shower? Are the companies reliable?
Thanks for any info!

This is typical in many parts of Arizona, but at least its warm. I live in Montana and in our area almost everyone in the country hauls water from a community well down close to the river, people here will pay 300.000 dollars for 20 acres of land and haul there water and store it in cisterns. Kingman and east of there is a nice area as well as golden valley and down to bullhead city..

We who live in the city limits and also some county areas have water and you don't have to haul it.
Golden valley has Pioneer water company who covers quite a bit of that area. SOHI has its own water piped in as well.
Some haul there own water some have it delivered but I have no idea on the cost.
Our place in Montana we have our own well so no hauling there either.

Usage wise I doubt your habits will change much if you move from what you do now.
Why don't you take a look at your current water usage from your last year's bill and see how many gallons you are using monthly?
That will tell you how many gallons you are using anyway.
Then perhaps someone can provide information on what they are paying for so many gallons to be brought it for you.

Hi - we are looking to relocate to Flagstaff or Parks. If you don't have a well you need to have water haul. Being a city person this sounds a bit scary. While having a large cistern tank is good and having a gage so you see when you run low, where is the water coming from? What is the quality of the water? Will the tank freeze in winter? I heard Williams is having a bad time of it with the water haul. Does anyone have experience/info on this issue? Guidance/advise is most welcome.
thanks.

I have water brought in at $65.00 per 2000 gallons . for two of us that lasts a month . hauling my own in a 500 gallon cap tank averaged out at less than $ 20.00 per 2000 gallons .

We haul water at my work. 2500 gallon tank, usually lasts a couple weeks, or upwards of a month when it's slow (we have very low water usage though). Cost to haul will also depend on how far you are from whoever is hauling it. The farther they have to drive, the more they charge. There's a few different companies who do it as well. Alternatively, you can get large plastic cisterns for a truck bed, and haul your own for way cheaper.

So it's really hard to determine how much it'll cost without knowing (1) how much water you use on a monthly basis, (2) how far away it is, (3) what company you'd go with.

Currently, we've got a deal with the company we use... I think we pay something like $75 / haul, and they just top us off. Sometimes that means it's a bit expensive, sometimes it means we save money. Flat rate deals like that aren't the norm, though.

As for freezing, our tank is underground, so we don't have to worry about that. All the pipes in the lodge are wrapped in insulation as well.

Thank you for the info. Do you filter the water after you get it? We are planning on saving run-off water for plants/animals. Any other info on living in Parks or Flag?

Thanks all.
