    Just had our water meter bill through our door today.

    bearing in mind that we live in a 3 bed house, have a 2 adults and a 2 1/2year old living here, dog,cat & rabbit, 10ft x 10ft greenhouse to water, 20ft x 10ft veg garden,

    and i use a 200gpd R.O System that uses 3000lts of water to make 1000lts pure water at the minute. and this is what our bill was:-

    period of charges

    17th November 2011 - 18th May 2012

    Total water charge:- £89.31
    Total Sewerage Charge :- £113.96

    Total of £203.27 for 6 months.

    that only works out to be £33.88 a month. £8.47 a week!

    so goes to show even on a water meter it dont cost as much as you think to have a meter fitted!

    at the moment i dont, but what im going to sort out over winter is to fit a meter onto the water before the RO and then just charge what i use to the business.
    think anglian water charges about £1.45 per 1000lts so will then charge that amount per 1000lts to the business.

    I could be wrong but think I heard somewhere that you can have a meter on the outside tap for business/garden usage at a cheaper rate.
