My tank has been sitting in this same spot behind my shed with the same washing soda mix for about 10 years now. In all those years the only expense has been for electricity. Top off water occasionally, keep it covered so small critters don't drown in there, and replace the sacrificial metal once in a while. My sacrificial metal is free. I use old welded wire fencing. There are still several rolls of it to go thru before I have to worry about buying any. The washing soda concentration is just enough to keep it from freezing solid. It does sometimes get a layer of ice on top. Knock a hole, put parts in, hook up charger, and it makes enough heat to melt the rest of the ice.
