    We're a retired couple living in a 1930s bungalow in the driest (i.e. lowest rainfall) part of the UK.

    At the end of 2004 the water bill read as follows:

    Standing Charge 015mm @£20.50 per year
    Domestic consumption charge 40 M3 @73.64p
    D/D discount @ -£2.50 per year.

    We're paying £11.92 per month - well, that was last year! From June to next May we'll be paying £4.39 a month.

    We each have a shower every morning (no baths), washing machine twice a week, or at most, 3 times.

    I had the water meter installed after I was widowed, early 1990s. Council tax 'C' band, wouldn't like to think what we'd be paying now if we didn't have the meter!
