Good Morning

We've just had our annual water bill land on the doormat, and this year it says that we have used 78m3.     Just 2 adults.

On checking against our recent annual usages, this has been very steady over the years and has been 71, 69, 67, 67 over the last 4 years.

Obviously this year we've been here nearly all the time, and what with the additional handwashing, could that have accounted for the additional 7m3 of water used this year.

Usually we'd have had approx. 28 days away from home on holidays etc. where we'd obviously be showering and flushing away from home.    Although to counter this DH hasn't washed the car as often, as it hasn't been far!

Just wondered if anyone is seeing this sort of increase in usage for 2019-20, and that we don't have a leak problem instead.
