just had a £500 water bill

That’s a shock

How much should it be for the year for a small flat just me and the wife?

Can I try and reduce it, would I be better off with a metre?
Nothing has been fixed since 2008, it was just pushed into the future

    Your bill is based on the Rateable Value of your flat.

    Contact your supplier re a water meter - not always practical to fit one
    Never pay on an estimated bill
