Now that the threatened drought is over and restrictions on hosepipes have been lifted, I was wondering which is cheaper anyway, to have a water meter or not ?
I can't speak from experience here, I've never had a meter but have often wondered if they do save money/water or not. Living in the country there are no water rates to pay usually, they are covered by the local farms, so having an extra bill is taking some getting used to !
I'm very economical in my use of water anyway, I only use the washing machine twice a week and then it's on a quick/low temp wash. Baths twice a week and never fill it up. Wash up once a day, re-using 'grey' water for the garden, and lots of other little ways to conserve this precious resource.
My water rates are £196.00 paid in 2 x 6 monthly payments - is that expensive ? how does that compare with being 'on the meter' ?
I will be interested in hearing from you.
take care peeps.....
