Water Rates Warrington

The rates you pay for your water depend on whether your home has a water meter or not. You can find out very easily whether your Warrington water rates are metered or not by looking at a water bill you may have somewhere in the property. Homes with metered Warrington water rates will have a meter number listed on one of your water bills.

If you've just moved in or you don't have a bill handy, you can look outside your house or in the front garden for a meter. Sometimes the meter may be located inside your house near to the stop tap.

If your property does not have a water meter, you will have the rateable value of the home instead. The rateable value part of your Warrington water rates will have been determined by the Warrington local council back in the 1990s and will probably remain the same.

The average water rates Warrington residents are being charged result in an average water bill of around £425 a year. This amount combines both water supply and sewerage costs.
