If you have an unmetered bill and a monthly payment arrangement in place, your annual bill is split over 10 monthly instalments: May to February. We do not take payments in March and April because during these months we generate bills for the forthcoming financial year.
If you have a metered bill and pay by a monthly budget arrangement we can take a payment each month of the year. We will automatically review your payments annually.

Charging for water services is a complex matter, involving both the law (primarily the 1991 Water Industry Act) and our economic regulator, the Water Services Regulation Authority, which is referred to as Ofwat.
Your supply is either unmetered or metered, and this normally determines the way we charge for your water supply.
Unmetered – we normally use the rateable value (RV) of your property and calculate the cost for the year in advance
Metered – we normally read the meter twice a year and you pay for the water you actually use
There is no cost to close your account. Depending on the status of your account and any payment arrangement you may have, there could be a final balance to pay.
