    Default 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
    finding out.

    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!

    SAHM to 2 wonderful kiddos!

    Default Water Bills

    Hi, Traci,

    We live in Waterloo Ontario and pay .75 per cubic metre for water
    and .72
    for sewage. This comes out to an average bi-monthly bill of about
    $30 for
    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
    all the
    money they've lost over the years!
