SES Water Charges

The SES Water charges on your bill will primarily depend on whether you live on a metered or unmetered property. This will determine what kind of water rates you're on.

Out of all the SES Water charges, there is one that will appear on your bill no matter what. The standing charge is essentially a delivery fee that pays for the maintenance of SES Water mains pipes and for wastewater management as well as sewerage. Additionally, you will also pay £6 annually into the Government's Water Support Scheme. The standing charge is fixed for the year and does not change based on your water usage if you live on a metered property.

If your home does not have a meter, in addition to a standing charge, you will pay based on the rateable value of your property. This is the rental value of your property that was determined by Inland Revenue in 1990. This is then multiplied by the water rate to come to your annual cost.

If your home does have a water meter, your annual cost will be the water you used (in metres cubed) multiplied by the water rate.

SES Water Moving Home

The key thing to remember about SES Water moving home queries is that the water supplier needs at least 2 working days' notice to process your request so that you can avoid the risk of being incorrectly charged. First of all, you need to think about what your SES Water moving home situation is:
