It depends on the size of pressure washer. I have a small Karcher K2 which ive found is adequate enough for most household tasks like cleaning the car, drive, bike etc. Mine says it uses 360 litres per hour of use

I wouldn't ' be to concerned being on a Meter and using a power washer. If you look at your bill you should see how much it is in sq mtrs (1000 ltrs)and you should see it is not that expensive. It's all the other charges on top that make it dear.

pressure washer uses a lot less water then normal tap/hose pipe

​I find my hose pipe doesn't use any water if I don't turn it on lol top tip

get a big barel to collect rain water. and hook up a hose to the bottom of the barel. free water.

A bit of a daft question, how big is your patio and how long will you be washing for

Use a good mildew/mould remover and a long handled scrubbing brush no wasted water or electricity and good excersize all at once

Does use a lot of water. Also does not work off a water butt. I have a 200 litre one and was unable to support the pressure washer. Try the patio attachment which uses much less water than the lance.
