    You'll probably be the same as me I would guess so Southern Water for supply and Thames Water for removal.

    Have you got a sub meter for your pond yet as you can just give them that reading and they'll subtract it from your bill.

    [QUOTE=Feline;279548]Hilariously they did actually just come out

    He knocked on the door and said 'I can see your meter going round'.
    I took him through to the garden and showed him the 'leak'. He was quite impressed!

    I'd bet, this was the nicest "leak" they had ever to investigate Lara.....
    You get what you pay for - or better - what you make yourself.

    I don't think they are too bothered if I use lots of water since I am paying for it
    They seem to have policy of checking for leaks if someones usage suddenly increases. Apparently mine has been increasing over a 2 year period funnily enough- initially when the new pond was built but then I think it jumped again when I started running RO.

    I had some marine grade stainless steel balustrade posts custom made to my height requirements and then ordered some perspex with polished edges and rounded corners to fit.
    sales@simplebalustrades.co.uk did the posts and the perspex was from perspexsheet.uk in 10mm thick stuff.

    Other way round for me - Southern for removal.

    I receive 2 drainage rebates;

    1) No surface water runs to public sewer. This gives £45 rebate (not sure whether that is annual rebate or 6 Months worth).

    2) Recently self-installed Secondary meter for outdoor tap which is also deducted from wastewater bill. First reading was 13 m3 which knocked another £30 off the latest bill.

    The supplier, Thames water, charge £1.30 per m3 plus monthly standing charge.

    The removal, Southern Water, charge around £2.30 (from memory) for each m3 that goes to drains so this is where the biggest potential savings are.


    If you were able to devise a system to use pond and bath water for toilet flushing etc in addition to no pond/bath water going to the sewer you'd potentially reduce your bill to that of non pond keepers. Well, all of us except maybe Lara!
