Depending on how much you’re currently paying, you could be better off switching to a water meter. This is often the case if you live alone or have more bedrooms than people in your home. The great news is that United Utilities fit meters for free and if you change your mind or find you’re not making a saving, you can switch back to rateable value within 24 months of the meter being fitted.
To help you decide whether a water meter is right for you, please visit the United Utilities website or phone the Customer Finance Team on 0161 217 6016 to request a water meter application pack.
If you have a water meter, you pay for all the water that you use – so the less you use, the less you pay.
Making simple changes to your daily routine can make a big difference to your bank balance. Not letting taps run, fixing leaks, having a shower instead of a bath – these small savings can start to add up over the year.
