2. Water Prices Rise
It’s quite possible you won’t even notice rising water prices. And if you run a larger organisation, it’s understandable too – with bills passing through and being paid by your accounts team. Water price rises usually happen as a result of increased usage, as well as inflation.
You won’t know if you’re being overcharged on your water bill or by how much if you don’t check. This is where a commercial water audit could come in handy – highlighting billing errors, as well as opportunities to save money. See our guide on water audits and how they work to learn more.
3. You Can Compare Commercial Water Prices
It’s often forgotten, but businesses can switch water suppliers in England and Scotland. Deregulation has made switching so easy. This now means businesses, like yours, can compare prices from suppliers across the region and go where the best deal lies.
We specialise in helping businesses of all sizes find that better deal. You can compare prices as quickly as you’d make a cup of tea with our comparison tool. All you’ll need to get started is your business name and address and your supply point identification number (SPID).

4. You Pay Business Wastewater Charges Too
Remember, the wastewater that flows down your building’s drains is charged for – you’re charged for sewerage. So, there’s a real opportunity to save even more by cutting back on your business’ water consumption – the less water you waste, the lower the business wastewater charges you’ll have to worry about.
5. The More You Use, The Higher Your Business Water Rate
If your firm uses a lot of water to carry out business processes, whether operational, manufacturing or any other, you’ll likely face a higher rate from your supplier. So, the general rule is, and the same applies to households too, to seek out a fixed-rate deal. By doing this, you’ll ensure you don’t face any additional charges for overuse.
On the flip side, if you feel your firm has its water consumption under check, it might be worth looking into a business water meter (if you’ve not already got one). It’ll measure your water consumption, determining exactly how much your business water bills should be as a result of an accurate reading.
6. Help with Water Rates is Here
Many commercial water suppliers have a help structure in place for businesses who can’t afford to pay their business water bill. Typically, this will take the form of a payment restructuring plan.
However, if you’re finding it a challenge to understand how business water charges work, or you want to find out whether a water meter or commercial water audit could help your company save on its bills, fear not. You’re in the right place to find all the expert help you need.
The team here, at Utility Bidder, have vast knowledge and experience in helping businesses not only make sense of their business energy bills but also empower them to find that better deal.
