    I want to get one but we pay £8.50 a month for water supply, and this seems very low anyway from what others have said, so maybe I wouldn't save.

    I used to pay my metered Thames Water bill by direct debit every month like a good boy until they decided to up my monthly amount by 162% from £ 26 to £ 42 in Aug 2005 for no good reason other than to ensure I didn't underpay. There is no discount for paying monthly ( as per other utilities ) so I told them to cancel the direct debit and I would pay their 6 monthly bills in arrears thanks all the same - thus I earn interest on the money up until the moment I pay the bill by electronic bank transfer.

    Now I can pay my Thames Water bill using a cashback credit card through their website and still pay 6 months in arrears + get 50'ish days interest free to settle my credit card bill & for no extra charge.:beer:

    Oh and all my metered bills since Aug 2005 have worked out at as follows:-

    Jul 05 - Dec 05 - £ 119.16 ( £ 23.83 )
    Dec 05 - Jun 06 - £ 127.05 ( £ 21.18 )
    Jun 06 - Jan 07 - £ 158.95 ( £ 26.49 )
    Jan 07 - July 07 - £ 160.95 ( £ 26.83 )
    Jul 07 - Jan 08 - £ 151.33 ( £ 25.22 )
    Assume 1st – then check the facts!
