Think your bill is too high?
Higher than expected bills can really put a dampener on things. If you think your bill is too high, it's a good idea to find out why.
Are you using more water?

 

The biggest cause of high bills is using lots of water. Take a moment and think about the water you've used recently.

 

Things such as:

  • having a baby
  • someone moving in with you
  • upgrading to a shiny new power shower
  • redecorating and DIY, or
  • doing more laundry

can increase your water usage.

 

We've also had customers realise they've been watering the garden with a hose during hot summers. It's really that easy to use so much more water.

 

If you think you might be using more water, read our water saving tips to cut your bill back down.

I'm not using more water, so what else could cause my high bill?

It's possible your high bill is because your last bill used estimated readings which were too low. If that is the case, we carry over anything owed to your new bill.

 

Our estimates are often very accurate, but it is important to provide a meter reading at least twice a year so you can keep your bills on track.

Leaks and leaky loos

Another common cause of high bills is leaky pipes. But, don't worry!

 

If you think you have a leak, we offer free leak detection kits.
