Why has my payment plan increased?

Your payments may have increased if you have recently moved home as your bill could cover a longer period than usual. 

If you don’t have a water meter the increase is likely due to:

  • you have recently moved home and the yearly charge is higher at your new address due to your rateable value increasing 
  • you reduced your instalment amounts for your Direct Debit and they have been increased to cover the outstanding charges

If your home has a water meter the increase is likely due to:

  • visitors coming to stay or a new baby in the family
  • new appliances in your home using more water. For example, a power shower uses twice as much water as a normal shower
  • previously estimated bills
  • a balance brought forward from a previous bill, or your previous bill may have had a credit on it which has been used up
  • the amount of your payment plan may not have been enough to cover your bill
