Meter on wrong pipe - no usage

Hi all,

I moved into my flat around 9 months ago, it used to be a launderette before it was converted and there is more than one water pipe entering the property. There was an issue a while ago with the pipes and they had to dig them up to repair them and I think they have put the meter on the wrong one, it appears that I haven't used any water in the last 6 months.

Do I tell them of their mistake? Am I liable to pay an estimated bill? Will they ever know?
