How much is water going to cost me from the pet store?
A basic system is just a tank under your sink. They need to drill a very small hole into the sink for the faucet. Most places aren't all that much against it. You could always ask your landlord about it...if the tap water has high levels of ammonia, you probably won't be the first to ask.
The price is going to vary, depending on the store. Mine has huge 500-1000 gallon vats, and I don't think they charge all that much for it. Unfortunately, though, I don't buy it since I'm good with my own little system.
