Hiya,

Never had a water meter before and partner set it all up etc and put the reading in end of march.

We've just updated the meter reading and it has moved less then 10 points in space of 3-4 weeks ish?

Is this normal? Is it more feasiable that partner put the orignal numbers in wrong? and if so what would happen considering we moved in when he put that reading in and we would have no way of getting the old reading? :o

    '10 points'* is 10 cubic metres(i.e. 10,000 litres)

    That, depending on where you live, could cost anything from £20 to £50.

    The average consumption is approx 55 cubic metres per year per person. So your consumption is about average.

    * assuming he read the 'whole' numbers - not the fractions.

    Thanks, I just thought 10 didn't seem alot at all and we had an error message come up saying that the reading seemed extremly low/high are we sure it was correct kind of thing.
