What your bill covers

How your bill is set

The prices we charge for your water supply are set every five years and are agreed with Ofwat, the economic regulator of the water industry. Our average household bill is now £142 – that’s less than 39p a day.

In setting our prices, we considered the current pressures on household income and the investment we need to:

  • maintain our plant and pipe network
  • improve our service in areas that customers have identified as a priority
  • further reduce the risk of large-scale service disruption.

At the same time we are improving our efficiency which will further reduce our costs and keep bills as low as possible.

We charge for water based on either the amount of water you use if your supply is metered, or the rateable value of your property if you don’t have a meter. In addition, we apply a standing charge to cover the cost of billing and administration.

Should you get a water meter?

Water meters have important benefits for you, for us and for the environment as you can have more control over your water use and leaks are easier to detect.
