Meter reading and consumption

Submitting a meter reading

Submit the meter reading to us annually on receipt of your meter reading request. That way, we do not have to estimate your consumption and can draw up a correct bill.

In submitting your meter reading, problems with the internal plumbing, such as a leak, can also be traced and resolved more quickly.

Has your water consumption changed? Have you filled your surface water well, or has your daughter recently gone into digs? Then you can adjust the amount of your intermediate bills so that you are not faced with this change in the annual consumption bill.
