If you don’t have a water meter, you pay a fixed price for your water. It doesn’t matter how much water you use, your bill won’t change. Instead, the bill is based on the “rateable value” of your home - aka, how fancy it is.
Some people pay less with a meter, some don’t. It all depends on your own situation.
Live alone, as a couple or small family, in a valuable home? Bingo! You might well save money with a meter.
Shedloads of kids in a small space? Dishwasher/washing machine/shower/garden sprinkler on all the time? Watch out. A meter might be more expensive.
Here’s our quick step-by-step guide to help you work out what’s best for you and your home.
