    Hi my mate was filling up his tank with water ready for work when somebody from the water board saw him and asked if he was on a water meter? Currently he isn't but by monday that could change :(
    I wondered If anyone uses wfp and is on a water meter?
    Is it possible to do so for same money? I imagine that you would have to charge accordingly for the cost of water.

    Lol no not from water board it was a chance meeting with mybmate and water board man..if they are on a clampdown I hope their window cleaner whacks his price up for cleaning their windows. A water company wont use a trad guy will they due to H&S..if they have a wfp guy they must be aware that loads of cleaners use wfp now.

    I was on a meter in my last house but moved back into my other property a couple of months ago. Per 1000l of pure was about £12.
    No way I'll go on one again, all my gear is way out of sight anyway.

    I think the water board has been misled by how much money they would be making after everyone was put on a meter paying for the actual water they use. The majority of people who voluntarily go on a meter have reduced their water bill. They are going to have to become inventive to make money.

    I'm on a water meter, so the cost does rack up. But spoke to water company, can't get mains water any cheaper, but as the bill is made up of supply and sewerage costs, can get a reduction on the sewerage. Normally they calculate the sewerage as about 95% of supply volume, but if producing pure water, this percentage is significantly less
