Yorkshire Water Water Meter – 0843 557 5206
A water meter allows you to pay for the amount of water you use, rather than a set annual charge. Some customers may prefer a meter as it saves money, whereas it will be more expensive for others. Houses built after 1990 will have a water meter and it’s not possible to remove this. Meters are usually installed near the outdoor stop tap or under the kitchen sink. It’s free of charge to have a meter installed as long as it is easy for Yorkshire Water to install and it can be placed in their preferred location. You can go back to unmetered charges if you contact Yorkshire Water within 2 years of having the meter fitted.

Popular questions about Yorkshire Water
Which drains are Yorkshire Water responsible for?
The customer is responsible for all the pipes which take water from the mains to your home. If you live in an older house, you might share a pipe with a neighbour, which means you’re jointly responsible. Yorkshire Water is responsible for pipes in roads and footpaths.
How are Yorkshire Water rates calculated?
Yorkshire Water rates are calculated depending on whether you have a meter or not. If you have a meter, you’ll be charged on how much water you use. If you don’t have a meter, you’ll be charged based on the rateable value of your property.
Where does Yorkshire Water come from?
Half of water supplied by Yorkshire Water comes from reservoirs and the rest of it comes from boreholes and rivers.
