Severn Trent Water Meter

Households have the option to have a Severn Trent Water meter set up or alternatively have an unmetered account. Additionally, metered households can switch to being unmetered and vice versa depending on their preference.

Is it cheaper to have a water meter with Severn Trent?

Depending on how many people live in your home and your lifestyle, having a Severn Trent Meter could end up being cheaper than being on an unmetered account. To decide whether to go metered or unmetered with Severn Trent, use an online water calculator such as the one on the CCW website.

How does Severn Trent read my water meter?

Severn Trent Water reads your meter by taking down the black digits on the water meter for your property every six months and matching them with past readings based on the meter serial number. The good news is that if you want a more accurate record of your water consumption, you can submit a meter reading to Severn Trent Water on a monthly basis.

Your Severn Trent Water Meter measures how many cubic metres of water are supplied to your home. Severn Trent Water subtracts the current meter reading from the previous one to find out how much water you have used since the last meter read.

Can I have my Severn Trent water meter removed?

Severn Trent Water does not remove installed water meters instead the water company moves your property to an unmetered account so that you pay a fixed yearly amount for your water consumption, no matter how much or how little you use. The unmetered water bill is calculated based on the size and value of your property so it's not the same for all homes in the Severn Trent Water supply area.
