I don’t know what’s happening but my carees water bill has shot up, he lives in a small flat, only one bedroom so why is he being charged so much?
North Yorkshire so it’s Yorkshire Water, he is paying.
Can I be very cheeky and ask what others are paying? the bill is over £10 a week for one person barely using any water.
Water meters are read every six months and as the meters are usually fitted into the pavement outside the property you rarely actually see the guy who comes to read it ! The whole point of a meter is to give an accurate reading so, no, they are not estimated readings. I’m pretty sure that the water companies don’t charge for fitting one.
I found that a meter has definitely worked out cheaper for me - I have one here and I had one in my previous property - my bills are still definitely cheaper than they were when I lived in an un-metered property back in 2002 even though I now have a garden that needs watering and back then I didn’t have a garden !
