I live on my own in a one bed flat, which is the top half of a house. Thames Water is my supplier.I read that as a single person it's usually worth getting a meter, and if it's found to be not technically possible to fit one, you get put on a permanent discounted tariff. This is absolutely true: it was not possible to fit a meter as the pipes are inaccessible (I had guessed this before the engineer visited). My water bill got reduced from £23.45 to £21.77 a month. I believe this is true for all suppliers, but do check.
I pay just over £43 per month for 10 months for water. I was widowed in July 2019, my Daughters have left home so there is just me. I only have a wet room , I wash twice a week. Would I benefit from a meter? Is it free to change? thanks
