Understanding Your Bill
February is the month when Anglian Water publicizes their water and sewerage service charges for the upcoming year. These apply from the 1st of April to the 31st of March. Below is a listing of the various tariffs that make up part of the charges for the year.
- Standard rates – Unmetered and metered charges
- WaterSure – Vulnerable customer charges – WaterSure
- AquaCare Plus – Vulnerable customer charges – AquaCare Plus
- LITE – Support for people with low disposable income
- Other charges – Miscellaneous charges such as reconnection charges and meter test fees
If you don’t have a water meter, you will be charged based upon the Rateable Value (RV) of the property. The value was established in March 1990 and is based on several different factors such as the size of your home, how many rooms are in the home, and the amenities provided in your area. Although the rateable values are no longer established by councils, Anglian Water still uses the values fixed in 1990 or earlier as the foundation for charges. A fixed charge ensures that everyone receives the same service for the rate paid.
If you do have a water meter, the charges will be based upon the actual amount of water that you have used, in addition to a fixed charge. The sewerage charge is typically 90% of the water used, as 10% is allowed for activities such as watering a garden. If you feel that less than 90% of your water is going back into the sewer, call the Anglian Water phone number to discuss. The fixed charges that are added to each bill include a cost for supplying water and a cost for the collection and treatment of dirty water.
High Water Consumption
You may wish to contact Anglian Water if you have a meter reading that is higher than you expected. Higher than average bills can arrive after recently having a water meter installed. There are several other possible reasons for higher than average consumption or larger bills, such as:
- Dripping taps, washing machine overflow, and ballcock issues.
- Leaks on your private supply pipes.
- Previous charges that were based upon estimated readings.
- A longer period between meter readings than normal.
- Construction or tasks such as lawn work or filling a swimming pool.
- An increase in the number of people living in the home.
It may be important to keep in mind that in some cases, such as in older properties that have changed or being converted, water suppies could be joint or shared. Under these circumstances, the water meter could be recording water used by a neighbour rather than a leak. Should you suspect that this is the case, contact Anglian Water customer services to discuss the matter and to have someone check into the situation.

If you use a lot of water and need assistance with managing your bill, being enrolled with WaterSure or AquaCare Plus can help. WaterSure helps by keeping your payments the same, regardless of how much water you actually use. This is a fixed-rate tariff with a higher yearly standing charge and no specific charge for the volume of water that is used. AquaCare can reduce the fluctuation in your water bill, even when you use more water, by making most of the bill be a fixed charge. Lastly, there the LITE tariff which is designed to support individuals with low disposable income.
