    WTF, Thames Water taking the Mickey?

    Me and the OH have been living together for 3 years in the same property, we have been paying £11 per month by direct debit and all of a sudden, whoooosh, a revised bill arrives asking for £25 per month.
    I rang the man in Asia to query the bill and he asked me if we were low, medium or high usage.
    I remarked that its up to THEM to tell me what usage we were and asked him to look at the meter readings, he explained that they have NEVER taken a meter reading at my property.
    I asked him how they can charge me almost 150% extra without even knowing how much we have used.
    Is this normal? I find it very strange.

    Makes my blood boil, inept muppets

    I take it all your meter readings were estimates then skusey?
    Be thankful they are not asking for it all in one lump sum if you are in arrears.

    omg thats awful! but your post made me laugh:oops:

    take a reading and compare to the last estimate also give them the reading then they can adjust your payment

    omg, thats awful. Take a reading right now and note it down and another in 3 months.

    Having said that my water ( essex and suffolk) works out to about 33 a month. High usage I guess!

    BJ1??

    I just think it's really weird how some couples don't ever take meter readings and then are shocked to get a massive bill. I didn't have to be told to read my gas and electric meters when I first started renting with my mates when I was 21! Just thought at 42 you would kind of know.

    christ i live in devon and my water rates are £66 a month. and no i dont have a swimming pool. i havnt got a meter its what the robbin sods charge..........

    I'm glad I dont live in devon...

    heck no I'm not...

    yes yes I am.. lol

    No, its lovely there!
