It depends on where you live, and who your local water company is. If you are not on a meter then you will be paying on the rateable value of the property, if you are on a meter and it's just you then you may have a leak somewhere after the meter such as a toilet cistern constantly trickling.

If you want to cut down your bills, and you live alone then I would highly recommend having a meter fitted, that way you will only pay for what you use, lots of water companies do a free meter option for domestic customers, where you can have a meter for 12 months to see what you save, and if you don't then they will come and remove it.

:-D

Yes they do, it's usually under the sink in kitchen. I would say it's defo high consumption then. Look out for the toilet cisterns, a lot of modern ones don't have an overflow pipe ( where you would see the water overflowing outside and know there's a problem ), they overflow inside the bowl. The way to test it is once the cistern has filled up with water ( or if it's not been flushed for a while it should be okay ) place a piece of loo roll at the back of the bowl below the rim, if it gets wet, then your cistern is constantly overflowing, try all your loos if you have more than 1 :-D

i live in a new build apartment in birmingham....and as mentioned before i had a small leak which gave me a high bill....I'd check everything properly....

the 2 leaks i had were:

1) one of the pipes under the sink had a tiny drio
2) the flush (loo) kept dripping water in the loo...

best thing to do is check your metre reading just before you sleep...and then first thing in the morning check it again...it should be the same as no-one will be using water...if its not then you know you've got a leak

I had a meter installed last year,my first bill from April to September was 77 quid,i haven't had the next one,it's due this month.

Yours is very high if you live alone.

Perhaps you do have a leak somewhere,i had one under my bath,caused by me trying to fit a washer to a dripping tap arghhhh

How long are your showers,you're only supposed to have one for less than 5 mins lol

I suppose its lumped in somewhere with our council tax - my new bill came in yesterday and havent looked at it properly.

I would absolutely hate to have a meter for my water useage.

Mine's £16.32/pm, so £195.84 a year. I live on my own in a one bedroom flat and think it's expensive. Most of the cost is paying sewerage to remove the waste water from the public drains outside.

My supplier is United Utilities.
