Thread: Water Bills

I have a question for you guys. We moved into my great grandfathers house 1
year ago. They had gone in and remodeled the entire place. All we have in the
house that requires water is our hot water heater, washer, your normal kitchen
and bathroom stuff. This house is very small - so you would think that the
water bill would be fairly low. The house we used to live in - the water bill
would be about 20.00 (had the same stuff that's in this house). Recently we
have been getting a water bill for almost $60!!!! We don't water our lawn, play
outside in it etc. I have called the water board and had them come out to check
for leaks and they do not find anything. We have had a plumber come out to
check our side to see if we have leaks - we don't.
Here is my question - can you be paying for somebody else's water bill in
addition to yours and not know it? I know that sounds crazy, but my husband and
I have some suspiscions (sp?). If this is possible - how would I go about
Sorry if this sounds crazy, but I don't know what to do.
P.S. Another thought is that our water meter is "plum across our neighbors
yard" - could the distant be the reason? I think this house was build back in
the early 1900s so I have a "pump" house practically at my back door and when my
great grandfather "connected" to city water that was the closest line at that
I appreciate any help in this!

We live in Waterloo Ontario and pay .75 per cubic metre for water
for sewage. This comes out to an average bi-monthly bill of about
each one. Were your fixed prices monthly or bimonthly?
Also, there are tons of new charges with the 4.3 cent hydro rate,
a debt retirement charge (at least if you live in Ontario) to cover
money they've lost over the years!
