Water Meter Review Update after 6 Months Use

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  😉
