Can A Water Meter Box Save You Money?
Looking for a way to save money on your water bill? Here’s how a water meter box could help
With the cost of utility bills on the rise, many homeowners are looking for ways they can save a bit of money.
Just one of the ways you can do this is with a water meter box and more than 60% of households across the UK have one installed.
They offer many benefits – from encouraging you to save water to helping you identify leaks more easily – but can they save you money on your water bills?
The experts here at Total Pipeline Systems reveal all in this article.
What is a water meter box?
Water meters are handy little devices – similar to gas or electricity meters – that measure how much water you use.
Your water supplier uses these readings to calculate how much to charge you for their services and the amount you’ll have to pay per month all depends on how much water you’ve used.
This is why many people consider water meters to be the fairest way to charge for water and sewerage services.
Will they help me save money?
Lots of people who have switched to water meters have found that they can save themselves a bit of money – but it’s important to remember that it all depends on your individual circumstances and consider the following:
- How much your water bill costs you now
- How many people live in your home
- How much water each individual uses
- How much you’re able to cut back on your water use
For many of us, a water meter box will be an incentive to use less water.
You’ll be able to see the exact amount you’re using and accurately estimate how much it’ll cost you at the end of the month; seeing why your bills might be costing you a fortune.
How much could I save with a water meter?
As we’ve already established, the amount you could save by switching to a water meter will vary depending on how much your house uses.
However, according to Money Saving Expert reports, lots of homeowners manage to save hundreds of pounds every year with their meters.
Who wouldn’t benefit from having one installed?
If there are lots of people living in your home using the likes of dishwashers, washing machines and showers daily, then you aren’t likely to benefit from having a water meter installed and would be better sticking to a fixed tariff.
If you’re planning on switching to a meter, keep in mind how much water these appliances use per hour and how high this could cause your water consumption to be.
