i have decided to start snowmaking this year for a backyard terrain park, and i was wondering how to reduce the water cost. i read something about getting a second meter for water, but i don't really understand how it works exactly. for information I live in Washington DC and here is the link to the water cost: https://www.dcwater.com/customercare/rates.cfm
i will be using two snowmakers (http://www.snowathome.com/our_products/SNOPRO_Snowmaker.php), two 1.58 gpm pressure washers and two air compressors because i want to be able to output a good amount of snow so that i wont have to rely on the weather which is very unpredictable. (http://www.homedepot.com/p/AR-Blue-Clean-1600-PSI-1-58-GPM-Electric-Pressure-Washer-with-Total-Stop-System-112/203230213) so it is 189.6 gallons a hour for both snowmakers. i believe that i would need certain hoses so that they don't freeze, where is a good place to buy them cheaply? i also have a friend in on this , but he is wanting to spend the least amount necessary. so all money tips are welcomed. im gonna be eating dinner shortly so my response might be late. thanks!
