Water bill validation

One in three water bills contain errors. We make sure you only pay for what you use.

Water is often called ‘the forgotten utility’. While most businesses already have a comprehensive strategy for managing electricity and gas consumption, water management can be often overlooked.

To-do lists are probably already overflowing – especially if businesses have to contend with regulatory reporting across a large portfolio. However, utility bills are complex which means errors can occur and be overlooked.

This means water optimisation should be a priority alongside other utilities for every business in the UK.

Understanding your water bills

Water bills have several different elements, and they can be complicated to manage. Bills vary depending on whether sites are metered or un-metered. Organisations pay a standing charge for water, plus either a volumetric rate or a charge related to the rateable value of your property.

While domestic sewerage charges based on incoming water are fairly standard, if businesses are discharging water used in production or for non-domestic purposes, these charges will be more bespoke to each site’s discharge. Furthermore, there are regional differences in the approach to charging for surface water and highway drainage.

With all this complexity, it should come as no surprise errors can creep in. Water bill validation helps spot these and allows companies to claim money back for historical inaccuracies.
