Water Rates Wrexham

The rates you pay for your water depend on whether your home has a water meter or not. You can find out whether your Wrexham water rates are metered or not by looking at your water bill. Homes with metered Wrexham water rates will have a meter number listed on their water bills.

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

Homes that aren't metered will have the rateable value of the home instead of this. The rateable value part of your Wrexham water rates will have been determined by the local council in the 90s and unlikely to have changed significantly since then.

The average water rates Wrexham residents are being charged result in an average water bill of around £439 a year. This amount combines both sewerage costs and water supply.

Wrexham water hardness is rated as soft water. While rainwater itself is relatively soft, water hardness can change through the water cycle.

Wrexham water's soft rating means that the soft water in your home is unlikely to lead to scaling in kettles, sinks, dishwashers and loos.
