On a water meter you only pay for the water you use so you are able to take control of your bills. We believe this is a fairer way to pay for water services and households on a water meter also tend to use less water.
This means we can conserve water and protect our valuable countryside and wildlife because we can take less water out of the environment.
Water meters also help us to detect leaks — the meter technology we are using will help us detect and find more potential leaks and get these resolved more quickly.
If your water supply is metered, you will also pay sewerage charges to Southern Water or Thames Water, based on the amount of water you have used, which may be more cost effective.
