Back in 1990, North West Water, the company responsible for providing water in the North West was privatised. In 1995, the company merged with NORWEB, the area’s electricity provider, to create United Utilities. By 2000, the two brands phased their names out and adopted the name United Utilities.
The North West is the wettest region in the UK and the level of water hardness is soft/very soft. The area that United Utilities serves has a population of seven million and the company has over 5,000 employees.

United Utilities Water – 0843 557 3710
United Utilities is a water supplier based in the North of England. Services provided by the company include the supply of drinking water, the treatment of wastewater and sewerage/drain management. United Utilities’ drinking water is sourced from a range of rivers and reservoirs such as those in Carlisle, West Cumbria and Dee reservoirs.
In order to ensure that customers in the region have enough water, United Utilities has developed a Water Resources Management Plan to show how they are planning to invest for the future. The company has investigated how they would cope in the event of a severe drought, as well as how taking less water from lakes could help to protect wildlife.
United Utilities Water Meter – 0844 453 0169
Your household could save money by switching to a water meter. The water meter calculates how much water you actually use, as opposed to the other method of calculating bills based on the rateable value of your property. However, a water meter doesn’t work for everyone- if you are a two person household and you pay between £300-400 annually, you’re unlikely to make any savings.
Water meters are fitted by United Utilities free of charge and if you get one and find you’re not making a saving, you can switch back within two years.

You can stay organised by managing your United Utilities account online.

To register for an online account, you’ll need a recent bill displaying your account number, details of your property and an email address. If you are unable to find your account number, call the United Utilities customer services team on 0843 557 3710 and they will be able to tell you what it is.
United Utilities Bills
You can opt to pay your United Utilities bill as a lump sum if you are financially able. Alternatively, you can spread the cost of the bill by paying with a monthly Direct Debit. Paying via Direct Debit will save you £5 a year. There are many other payment options such as paying online, at your local branch of your bank using cash or a cheque, by taking your payment card to a Post Office or Payzone outlet, or by making a cheque payable to United Utilities Water Limited. If you do send a cheque, ensure that you write your customer account number on the back. You should never send cash in the post.
Popular questions about United Utilities
Where does United Utilities cover?
United Utilities covers a wide region including Cumbria, Merseyside, Lancashire, Greater Manchester and some parts of Derbyshire and Cheshire.
How to read United Utilities water meter?
Your water meter is most likely found at the end of your garden, on the outside wall or under the sink. You read it in a similar way to a gas and electricity meter, so the black and white numbers show how much water you have used. United Utilities will read your meter once every six months to make sure that you are being billed the correct amount.
