Why switch to a water meter?
There are a number of benefits to switching to a meter
- Metered prices are lower than unmetered prices
- People with a meter tend to use less water
- Using less water means lower water bills and lower energy bills for heating water
- Using less water is helpful to the environment
- Special tariffs if you’re on a low income
- Having a meter helps spot leaks on your property
- It’s usually free to have fitted
As a very general ‘rule of thumb’ if there are more bedrooms in your home than occupants it is certainly worth checking if you might benefit from opting for a water meter.
If you do find your charges are higher, you have 2 years to change back to rateable value. We won't base your bills on the meter any more but it will remain in place at your property.
