Cost of water in Little Warley

Water bill in Little Warley

Water rates in Little Warley will vary depending on if your home has a water meter or not. It's easy to find out if your Little Warley water rates are metered or not by looking at a recent water bill or by speaking to the supplier. Homes with metered Little Warley water rates will have a meter number listed on their water bills.

Metered Customers in Little Warley

Customers with a water meter at their Little Warley home will pay a fixed annual charge, plus a charge for each cubic meter (m3) that's used. The fixed charge is to cover the essential running costs of Affinity Water, Anglian Water, Essex & Suffolk Water, or Thames Water. Whilst the variable charges cover the consumption at your Little Warley home.

Unmetered Customers in Little Warley

Customers without a meter at their Little Warley home have an annual charge for their water consumption. This charge is fixed, meaning your water bill will stay the same no matter how much water you use at your Little Warley home.

The rate unmetered customers pay for water in Little Warley will be based on the rateable value of your home. The rateable value calculation of your Little Warley water prices were determined by the local council in the 90s and will probably not have changed since then.

Should I get a water meter installed? It really depends on how much water you consume annually. If you are single, or have a small family, having a water meter installed at your Little Warley may save you money.

Customers with bigger families that use more water will probably not benefit by having a meter installed.

How hard is the water in Little Warley

While rainwater itself is relatively soft, water hardness can change through the water cycle. As rainwater filters through rocks, it picks up minerals, such as magnesium and calcium. The more minerals the water picks up, the harder is your water considered.

The water hardness rating in Little Warley is over 201ppm, that means the water hardness in Little Warley is rated as hard water.

What does this mean?

The water supply to your home in Little Warley contains a higher amount of hard water minerals. hard water means your water is not as effective at cleaning dishes, glassware, clothes, or even your body. There may also be more limescale in your appliances and it may affect the taste of your tap water.

Selectra recommends

We recommend adding a softening agent to the water in Little Warley.

  1. Baths, sinks, and toilets - Use an acidic sanitiser regularly (available in local shops) to clean susceptible surfaces in order to clear limescale deposits.
  2. Kettles - Don't completely fill your kettle with water. You can clean your kettle by half-filling and diluting two tablespoons of white vinegar, leaving it for four hours in order to loosen scale build-up. Rinse and repeat to remove scale.
  3. Dishwashers - Use the built-in water softener. Make sure you occasionally top it off with dishwasher salt in the right compartment.
