Customer Services

Contact Northumbrian Water customer services by calling 0844 248 2563 to speak to a person over the phone. You can find out anything you need to know about the water supplying or sewerage removal services at Northumbrian Water if you only call and ask. If you have an emergency situation rather than a general enquiry, you should use the 24/7 helplines for out-of-hours calls. Dial 0345 717 1100 to report any problems with water pressure or quality, or 0800 393 084 to report a leak if you require an immediate response. You should contact customer services if you are moving to a new house and you need to either close or transfer your account with Northumbrian Water.

Billing

It is important that you understand exactly how you are being billed for water consumption, and which tariff at Northumbrian Water is the best for you. Northumbrian Water has changed the look of their bills so they clearly explain how your charges are calculated and how much you need to pay, whether you have a water meter or not. You can sign up for e-billing to avoid wasting paper and view your bills online. Call 0844 248 2563 if you find any concerning changes to your bill. Higher charges could be due to increased usage or you may have a leak. If you want to review your payment plan and increase or decrease your monthly Direct Debit payment, call this number.

Payment

Understanding your bills is one thing, but paying them on time is another. Northumbrian Water offers several payment methods for customers to settle their bills. It is easy and quick if you pay online with a debit or credit card. Or you can call 0844 248 2563 to set up a Direct Debit for automatic monthly payments, and get a £7.50 discount on your annual bill. You can pay by cash at PayPoint shops, or pay at the bank or Post Office, or even send cheques by post to the Customer Services PO Box address. If you call to make a payment over the phone, then you will need to provide your 12-digit customer account number. This number can be found on your bills.

Water Meters

Installing a water meter can help you to save money, because you only pay for what you use. The meter allows you to track your water usage and make it more efficient. If you do not make any savings with your water meter, you can switch back to the unmetered tariff within 24 months. If you have a water meter and you need to use a lot of water for certain circumstances, you could be eligible for a reduced WaterSure tariff. Call 0844 248 2563 to apply for a water meter and arrange an installation. If you need help reading your meter and submitting the reading, or you want to challenge an estimated bill, then call this number. If you call to change tariffs, you still keep the meter.

Extra Support

Paying for utilities like water on top of all your other bills can be stressful. Northumbrian Water can reduce your bill with them under the SupportPLUS scheme. To apply, the annual income of everyone in the household must be less than £16.105, and the water bill must be 3% or more of this income. The reduced tariff could lower the bill by as much as 50%, while Arrears Support will provide a budgeting plan and could write off some of your debt over a period of 2 years. Northumbrian Water also offers Priority Services for people with medical conditions or mobility problems. They aren’t financial services but they make account management easier. Call 0844 248 2563 for help.

Feedback

Whether you have a compliment or a complaint about Northumbrian Water services or staff, call 0844 248 2563 to pass it on. Let them know if you were pleased with the speed and quality of an installation or repair job on your property.

You can complain about ongoing issues with water pressure, contamination, or lack of running water at all. Or you can complain about public works which are causing disruptions due to traffic diversions or an unpleasant smell. In certain situations, you may be able to claim financial compensation from Northumbrian Water for service failures.
