We are about to have a water meter fitted and would like to know how much the average monthly bill is for two people using it sparingly. The reason I ask is someone we know is paying 35 per month living on their own and yet they were told by a neighbour that a couple down the road are only paying 15 per month.

My new direct debit payment for the coming year has gone down to 18 a month.Household of 4 on a water meter and we all use the water as if we were not on one. Well worth getting an Israeli water meter fitted.

Oh for goodness sake. Do you realize that practically everything you use today is made in China...probably one of the worst countries for human atrocities at the moment. I don't see people refusing to use their latest bit of tech because it comes from China...

I opted to have one put in this year. Bills dropped from 45 a month to between 10 and 15 a month.

How can meters save anybody money? They need to be bought then fitted and then read regularly. All this adds to the companies overheads considerably. Yet apparently their revenue is going to nosedive. Amazing! Illogical!

Water meters are a con.
As soon as everybody has them up will go the price of water again.
Renationalise the utilities.
Clean water is a right.

We noticed a small saving when we first had a water meter a few years ago, but our bills are now up to a shocking 430 a year for 2 people.
No sign of a leak anywhere, apart from out of the bank account.

Perhaps if we did it might send a clear message that their behaviour regarding human rights is not ok? Your attitude is perhaps a little apathetic? no?
I must admit I don't really want one of these meters given that I know how the supplier conducts their business elsewhere in the world. I don't feel right about it. What should I do?

Cant wait for mine to be installed - water board say I'll pay roughly a third of my current bill.
SO WHY DON'T THEY CHARGE ME THAT AMOUNT IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!!
Annoyed of Lewes!

A C-T, that is still 210 a year less than you'd be paying without a meter. Not sure thats really shocking....
And Bongo, they can't charge you that now, because without a meter they don't know how much you'll use.

Third of the bill would be great! It is a shame we do not have Compare Water Prices!

The whole of Hailsham was compulsorily meterer a couple of decades ago ! ......Note that they haven`t tried it in any other towns - what`s that tell you about who SAVES money when metered . PS - A tip to sve you 18 a year FOR EVER ! -- IF you can prove to your sewerage/rainwater disposer that you do NOT discharge Rainwater from your roofs into their pipeworks - i.e. You , or your group of houses have soakaways ( possibly run into a stream ) They have to knock off the charge which is currently c. 18 a year - I did it , and was hoping for a showdown @ their head office -LOL - but they caved in on the second phone call . I`m in a group of 30 houses so that`s 30x18 a year the b`ggers were getting off us . I know there are variations within towns - but being involved with buildings for decades, I know that soakaways are more common than you would think !
