If you have a water meter, we charge you for every cubic metre of water you use. 1 cubic metre equals 1,000 litres of water, and this costs around £3.20. Don't forget, your bill also includes standing charges.
1,000 litres of water is equivalent to:
- 3,300 cups of tea
- 28 showers
- 13 baths
- flushing the toilet more than a hundred times
