Water Usage with our Meter
Just a quick update of water usage & charges after our water meter installment 6 months ago, we were originally paying£47.20 per month so decided to use the water meter usage calculator on the United Utilities website to see if there would be any savings. The new payment would be £31.11 per month making a saving £16.09 😉
Our usage since August is 9 cubic metres of water at £1.750 per cubic metre (£15.75 cost) and there is a standing charge of £34.79 per year
Standing Charge £7.04 per year
Sewer Volume Charge £1.182 per cubic metre (9 cubic metres = £10.64)
Surface Water/Highway Drainage £91.20 per year
We are now in credit by £99.51 (over payment) and our new payment plan will be reduced in March to £4.62 per month to Feb 17
