    Where is my water meter? 6th Dec 07 at 9:44 PM
    Here's a question for you, where is my water meter?

    Until quite recently I lived in a purpose built block of 22 flats, lived there for ten years. The water was on a meter and I got bills, with meter readings every three months. I never thought about it, just paid the bills, but when I got the last bill I got to thinking that in ten years of living in the flat I had never seen, or even known where my water meter was.

    So I asked the landlord. He says there are no water meters in the building or in the surrounding grounds.

    He bought the building in the spring to renovate it and sell the individual flats. He says he has seen the plans for the building, and grounds so many times he has them imprinted on his brain and no longer needs to look at them. He has been over the entire property with surveyors, builders, electricians, plumbers etc. and swears there are no water meters.

    So, if there are no water meters how do I get bills with meter readings?

    The final one was for 18 cubic meters, but there is no meter between where the water pipe enters the property and splits into 22 separate pipes. So how can the water company know how much water I have used?
