How Much Water Will You Use and Will it Increase My Water Bill?

On an average size home (3000 sqft) we use roughly 300 gallons of water on average to clean your home. Using your water, according to EPA.gov, they estimate it cost $0.00029 per gallon. Totalling just $9 for that 300 gallons we will use to clean your home.

Why Does My Guy Service Prefer to Use Your Water?

If we bring our own water, it will cost you $150 per 300 gallons.

3 Reasons Why:

  • Due to the wear and tear it puts on our trucks and trailers. That 300 gallons of water adds an additional weight (2,500 lbs) water on our trailers. Fun Fact: Each gallon of water weighs 8.34 pounds.
  • To be able to fill our tank, Citizens charges us a monthly $325 hydrant connector fee it costs to connect to blue cap fire hydrants.
  • Productivity, having water on site allows My Guys to get to work right away without the worry of running out of water. Allowing us to be more efficient in completing the job for you!

We also would charge a water fee to bring our own water for those who are using well water. The reasons for this are :

  • Slows down productivity if we are waiting on water.
  • Can burn up well pump (very expensive)
  • Will require homeowner to not use dishwashers, washers, or take shower/bath while we are washing
