Many new homes now come fitted with a water meter. If yours doesn’t, you will be given the chance to switch.
Benefits of a Water Meter
A water meter measures what you use, so you only pay for what you use. It can also help you save water as most people make a conscious effort to use less water once they have a water meter fitted. The water meter is generally free of charge and an engineer can come out and see if you are eligible for one and fit it at the same time. The meter will be fitted outside or inside if outside is not possible. There are some properties where a water meter cannot be fitted such as a flat.
You can contact Severn Trent Water and let them know that you plan to move house via your online account. If you are moving to the area that Severn Trent serves, you should let them know 28 days before you move. If you are moving within the area, it is the same. If you are moving outside of a Severn Trent area, you can close your account no more than 28 days before you move. You must provide a final meter reading.
Ways to pay your bill
You can pay your bill by Direct Debit so it goes out automatically, pay by card online or use a PayPoint outlet and Watercard, whichever is best for you. There is a WaterSure scheme which can help you pay for your water bills if you are on a low income with three or more children or a medical condition.
Doorstep Password Scheme
Severn Trent can help to protect you from bogus callers who pretend to be from the company. You can set up a password of your choice and ask any worker who arrives at your home for it. They will have to call the offices and answer security questions before they are given it, so you can be sure that they are genuine.
Report a leak
If you have spotted a leak in your area, please let Severn Trent know as soon as possible. There is a form on the website that you can fill out or you can call the number above. If you spot another issue such as a burst sewer, please do the same.
Your Water Supply
Severn Trent works hard to make sure that your water is always available and to a high standard. Water supply and pressure can be affected by a number of factors.
Flow depends on the size of the water pipe. To ensure you are getting a maximum level of flow, check whether your internal stop valve is fully open. This is usually located under your kitchen sink. If you notice your pressure changing, it could be down to the weather or work ongoing in your area. Water pressure may change over time as the network is managed. If you think yours is particularly low, call Severn Trent and they will come and investigate the cause free of charge. If it is a problem relating to them, they will fix it. If not, they can provide advice on what to do next. If your water supply is interrupted and you haven’t been warned, contact the water company and they will investigate straight away.

History of Severn Trent
The company was established in 1974 as Severn Trent Water Authority, one of the ten main water authorities in England to supply fresh water to people in the Midlands and Wales. It took its name from the two main rivers in the area, Severn, which runs from Shrewsbury to Wales, and the Trent, which flows from Staffordshire to Hull. It was privatised in 1989, and in 1991 it acquired Biffa, the waste management company before demerging from Biffa in 2006. A year later, the headquarters in Birmingham closed and around 200 employees relocated to the brand new Conventry head office.
