in Water bills
Hi all. I asked for a water meter but was Told I couldn't have one because I have two toilets on different feeds. The guy who came out to the house then asked how many people live at the address. I told him just two of us. He then told me he would put a note into the office for me. He then said might get some money off. One month later I received a letter from the water company telling me I could have a discount. Anyway 48% is is some discount. So if there's only two in a same as mine 3 bed semi or anything else I would check with the water company.

The reason you have a lower charges is not because you have two people living in the property; it is because they cannot fit a meter.
Anyone who cannot have a meter fitted must be offered an 'assessed charge'. The assessed charge can be either the number of people living in the property, or the number of bedrooms - different water companies have different rules.
Look at your company's tariff charges on-line and you will see the various assessed charges.
Not understood. What do you mean by 'either'?
assessed charges are when a meter cant be fitted but will be based on what they think 2 people would use on a meter if a meter was fitted
