Did you know that you can have your water bill capped if you have 3 or more children, and are claiming tax credits. Only applicable for those on a metered supply.

details from Severn trent water.

All water oards do it (it is a government thing)...check the specifics with your own water board.

BUMP me for the next person please.

will look into this

SlightlyMadSweet Mon 05-May-08 23:07:32

I was just looking to see what the capped level is in your area Nemo - as that would be the max you would pay.

Can't seem to find it though.

It can be cheaper without a meter...especially with lots of water usage.
