All you need to know about water meters

Some customers are looking to pay for the amount of water they use whereas others prefer the peace of mind of a set annual charge, regardless of their usage. That's why we offer you the choice of having a water meter fitted.

This section is packed full of information about water meters to help you decide. 

If you move to a property that already has a meter, unfortunately it's not possible to have the meter removed.  Your charges will be based on the meter at that property.
