Water Rates Bill
« on: April 24, 2020, 16:42 »
I have just paid mine.    According to the bill, I have used 5 litres more than this time last year. and a household with 1 person typically is 178 litres/day.    I have used 61 litres and my Bill was 68.75.
Now I am very careful my daily shower never runs except of get me wet and then rinse off. the kettle I only fill with a mug full etc.     I am quite surprised and wonder if my meter is wrong  :lol:   Still I don't care, I
shall just be quite and say nothing just pay up when asked.   :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:  Mrs Bouquet

It is most likily your toilet flush, worst invention for the planet flushing toilets. Have you thought about getting a compost toilet. I recently did and it is far better/cleaner and nicer to use. Def not what I was expecting. Shall make great compost for the flowers in a few years as well

Hello 178 litres is 39 gallons that seems a lot for 1 person a day ,280 gallons a week that a small heating oil tank full  as you say dont tell them it'll be the A.R.M (automatic meter  reader) on top of the stop tap outside your house that's gone daft one round the corner ran backwards for 2 years before the water aurhority realised jezza

The things that annoy me are water saving toilets. You need to flush them 2 or 3 times compared to once with a conventional toilet. Also they have a tendency to continually flow if the valve fails then requires a very expensive visit from a plumber rather than merely a quick diy fix. Otherwise you pay a much larger water bill. I believe this is called progress ::) HH

Ask Ben Fogle, he was on the island some 20years ago (Castaways) and said you dont need to wash as frequently as you think!

I guess if I was castaway on an island, maybe one wouldn't need to, crickey can you imagine it, how horrible  :D :D   I wonder what Mrs Fogle thinks about that, especially in lockdown !!    Mrs Bouquet
