I’m struggling to pay my bill, what support packages are available?

Both the industry-wide Vacant Relief Scheme (introduced by the water regulator for England, Ofwat), and the COVID-19 Repayment Scheme, have now come to an end, However, we offer a range of flexible payment plans to provide support to customers who need it.

If you're struggling to make payments then please contact our dedicated team on 0330 123 2002 who'll be more than happy to help.

To help to ensure your water bill is accurate and you are only charged for what you use we’d also encourage you to take a meter reading and submit it here. If you are unable to take a reading, then we will use an estimate until an accurate reading can be taken.

Our water consumption has significantly reduced. What can you do to help us lower our bills?

If you’re a metered customer then in order to ensure that your bills reflect your actual consumption, please submit a meter reading (ideally every six months) using our online form. If you have any issues accessing your meter then please contact us on 0330 123 2000 so that we can help.

If you do not have a meter then you may be able to save money by having a meter fitted. Find out more here

I am expecting someone to come out to read my meter. Will this still happen? If so, then what assurances can you give me that they are taking the right health and safety precautions before attending my site?

The health and safety of our employees and customers is of upmost importance. We are working with our external partners, including meter readers, to ensure they are following Government guidelines and taking extra precautions at this time. If you have any concerns then please do let us know. We will continue to keep this under review and provide any updates on our website.

If my business ceases trading will I still receive a water bill?

In England, if a business ceases trading and moves out of the property, charges will continue up to the point that the business no longer has a legal right to occupy the property (e.g. a lease has ended naturally or has been terminated by a landlord). At that point we will issue a final bill which will includes charges up to the move out date.

If you are moving out of your property then please complete this webform to let us know your move out date and final meter read. This will help to ensure your final bill reflects your actual consumption and you are only charged for the water that you used.
