Water Rates Grimsby

Whether your home has a water meter or not will dictate your water rates in Grimsby. You can easily find out if your Grimsby water rates are metered or not by looking at your water bill. Homes with metered Grimsby water rates will have a meter number listed on their water bills.

Homes that are not metered won't have this, but instead, they will have the rateable value of the home instead. The rateable value part of your Grimsby water rates will have been determined by the local council in the 90s and most likely will not have changed since. The rateable value is determined by several factors such as the size of the property and plot, the area and the general condition and availability of local services

The average water rates Grimsby water residents are being charged result in an average water bill of around £341 a year. This amount combines both water supply and sewerage costs.

Grimsby Water Hardness

Grimsby water hardness is rated as medium. While rainwater itself is relatively soft, water hardness can change through the water cycle. Due to the way water filters through rocks in Anglian Water Water's supply area, Grimsby picks up minerals, such as magnesium or calcium, on the way to your tap.

Grimsby water hardness rating means that the hard water in your home is less likely to lead to scaling in kettles, sinks, dishwashers and loos.
