    I am on low income (income support) and pay £48 a month.. they initially wanted £60something so I thought this was ok, but ive just been looking at what other people pay and it seems way less than me.. paying Jacobs extortionate nursery bills (last one this month, hurrah!) have left me completely broke, and I dont want to pay more than I have to.

    I just looked online and welsh water do a low income scheme thing where bills are capped at something like £200 a year, but no one has ever mentioned schemes like this to me before! I can apply, but the changes wont take effect until next yr I think.

    I've got a water card. So much easier I pay £5 per week on it so its all better. See if you can get one it just spreads the cost alot better for me.

    We don't pay water rates in military housing, but in previous homes (previous to 2012) we paid £32 a month with welsh water for the 3 of us in a 3 bed 3 bathroom house and had a dishwasher, so yours seems quite high hun unless rates have increased a lot? Plus we got a rebate when we left.

    Thanks everyone, also my phone is being sloow soni will properly thank everyone later.
    I just double checked and its actually £52 month. I will look into a water meter, it will definitely be cheaper. I'll have to ask someone else in the building what their bill is like, maybe its the area I live? But £600 a year is ridiculous for just me and my LO.

    Is ur account in credit? That could help lower ur bill.
    I was being charged £68 a month for 1 adult and 2 boys. I then called up as I was in credit by £250 and took £100 out for Xmas last year.

    They then sent me a letter reducing my bill to £10 a month and now it's £22, I've had to do a lot more washing Recently

    I don't have a water meter. For a 2 bed flat I pay £38.44. This was based on 2 adults living here. If I ring them to tell them it's just me here now, will they reduce it?

    £45 a month on a 1 bed flat with 2 adults and 1 child. I think its an extortionate amount but then most of our bills are living in Dorset!

    Am I right in thinking Scotland doesn't get water charges either? OH mostly deals with the bills but I've never heard him mention it
