Yeah, that's not how that works at all. You're paying that service charge regardless. C'mon, you had to have known your logic was total horseshit.
What, are you going to turn off your water, and use bottled water for showers and flushing your toilets?

The average Canadian household uses 329 litres of water per person, per day. Toilets, shower, drinking water included. Your real calculation should look like this.

\$30.69/month and then \$2.5231 per m^3 (1000 L) of water up to 110 m^3, i.e. 0.2531 cents/L. Health authorities commonly recommend drinking 2 L of water daily. So \$30.69/30 days + (0.2531 cents/L * (370L per day* 30days ) = \$55.67. Compare with cost of bottled water, \$1/24 500 mL bottles = 4.2 cents/500 mL bottle * 4 = \$0.17 to drink 2 L (or 0.17*164.5 for your daily house use) which comes to \$838.95 to run your house on bottled water. because THOSE are actual like terms. Let's say you have a wife? Tada! It's now \$1600 per month. Two kids? Cool! Enjoy that \$3200 a month water bill. That's how logic works. And even THEN, this is barn burning cheap water, sold as a loss leader to get people to come into No Frills. That's not exactly sustainable.

Let's also consider that you now have to drive to the grocery store, and cart home 9870 litres of water. Good luck with that.

And how about those societal costs? Water companies graciously takes that pristine ground water, and relocates it hundreds of miles away. Let's talk about the environmental cost of the plastics, the transportation fuel, the human capital it takes to recycle all of those bottles.

The same people who would argue that bottled water is somehow cheaper, are the same people who are fine shrugging off communal costs onto their neighbours. Just like your funny math, your argument is foolish.

Our water systems are a miracle of science and human ingenuity. Even at these insanely low bottled water prices, the private sector can't even TOUCH the efficiency of public water works.

Caring about the environment enough to tell people they are idiots for only drinking out of disposable bottles is being a nice Canadian.

Tell that to the manufacturer of the water bottles.
Not realizing people are going to buy whatever make sense to them
and companies are going to make whatever the hell they can sell fits the bill of being idiots.
Fighting over it? is another damn sure way to present yourself to be an idiot as well.

If it makes sense, good buy, if it doesn't, shut up and move along.
As for the environment, let the government worry about that.
