What are the benefits of a meter?

Save Money

With a water meter, you only pay for the water you use at home. If you reduce the amount of water you use everyday, the benefits will be reflected on your bill. By using less water, you spend less money - it's pretty simple! In fact, on average our customers save 100 on their bill after switching to measured charges.

Environmental

By being more conscious about your water usage, you will be contributing to a much bigger picture doing your bit for the planet and water conservation. For example, we have 1.2 million customers - if every one of those customers were using more and more water, the additional need there would be to produce more manmade lakes. By creating these lakes would require concrete structures, pipe laying, and extra buildings to treat this water. Not to mention the change of landscapes which would result in trees being cut down and rivers needing to be diverted. Also, the amount of power needed to convey the water around our network is our second biggest cost - aside from the monetary value, the more energy used increases the amount of C02 produced.

Only pay for water you use

Did you know that by not being on a meter, you could be paying for water you don't use? That's literally flushing your money down the toilet! Water meters are often seen as the fairest way to pay for your water bill as you only pay for the water you use.

Detect leaks

By having a meter, you'll be able to keep a closer eye on what goes on in your home. By checking on it every now and again, you'll easily be able to spot an internal leak on your property. By spotting leaks quicker you'll help reduce water waste.
