How much water do YOU use a week? ( Misting system question )

I was adding up some of the expenses that comes with poison dart frogs and I was thinking I will probably use alot less water than i will with keeping fish, I should just use distilled water i buy at the store to mist my tanks with but would like to know if i'm going to using alot of water.

Are RO systems the way to go? are they easy to install? The misting system will only be hooked up to 1 tank so would it be worth it?

My main questions are : How many tanks are you running, and how many gallons of water approximately do you use? How often do you mist a day and for how long?

I use about 2-4 gallons a day between 10 vivs. I usually run the misting system for a good 5-10 min for a good heavy rain. Really makes the frogs happy.

I use RO water from my unit that I got from Air Water and Ice. I have a 30gal trashcan resivour in teh garage with a float valve so its always nice and full.

One day if I ever get a house with a basement i will have the entire system rigged together with the trashcan as the misting sump as well and the tank drain lines going into a floor drain so there will be nothing to fill or dump.

Now if only I could get automated fly production.
