Our charges explained

We charge you for providing clean water to your property.

Depending where you live, your wastewater services are provided by either Thames Water (whose charges we include in your bill from us) or Southern Water (who send you a separate bill).

Our average bill for the year from April 2021 is £185. This is a slight decrease on the previous year and works out at around 50p a day. Our charges are explained in more detail below. If you need more information about understanding your bill or the support options we have in place for those facing financial hardship, have a look at the paying your bill section.

You can also find out how your water bill compares to others across the country and how water companies are performing on the Discover Water website.
