    Uh, maybe stop saying England and Wales when you mean England.

    I have been offered a single person assessed tariff instead of my rateable water bill as I live in a three bedroom house. Currently this will mean I pay£1.99 more for my water but save£21 on sewerage. I don't understand the formula used but could I ever end up paying more as a single person as opposed to sticking with the rateable value?
    I look forward to advice
    Thank you

    We saved hugely, as a couple in 3 bedroomed semi, by having a water meter. You can do a self assessment on your provider's website and we saved even more than this suggested, even by entering increased usage eg two showers a day and  washing a car every week.
