I am planning on making my water by running a hose pipe from kitchen sink. I have just moved into the flat (own it) today and looking at the previous person's utility bill for water it says Wessex Water and that the water is billed using unmetered charges based on the rateable value of the property. Is this good or bad? I only use a couple of hundred litres a week at moment, but this might go up. Would the water company hike up the prices for everyone in the block if they notice my flat is using an unusually high amount of water? I need to call the water company and register my name for the bills- should I change to metered charges?
