You can save with a water meter

Meters aren’t for everyone, and we’ll never recommend you get one unless we’re sure you will save money. But if you live on your own, have a small family, or live in a house with a high rateable value, the chances are you'd be better off with a water meter and start saving straight away.

The great news is that we fit meters for free and our lowest bill guarantee means that you won’t be worse off with a meter during your two year trial and any savings you make are yours to keep. It’s a win-win!

Our lowest bill guarantee works like this: every time we send you a bill, we’ll compare your meter charges against what you would have paid on your old rateable value bill and charge you whatever is the lowest amount. So you’ll never be out of pocket.

Our lowest bill guarantee last for two years, after which you can decide to go back to your old rateable value bills if you’ve not made a saving. There’s really no risk when switching to a meter.
