Why is business water cheaper then domestic

Is Commercial Water Less Expensive Than Residential?

Given that businesses serve larger populations and typically occupy larger premises compared to households, their water usage tends to be higher, often resulting in higher bills. However, this doesn’t necessarily translate to businesses being charged more for water. In fact, businesses often benefit from discounted rates.

The deregulation of the water market for non-residential properties in England and Scotland in 2017 allowed businesses, charities, and organizations to select their water supplier and opt for more cost-effective tariffs. Numerous factors influence water bill calculations, and with competing suppliers able to set their own rates, businesses have the opportunity to secure lower prices.

Business Water Rates

Water bills are essential for all businesses, and they typically include several standard charges. Let's explore some of the common fees your water supplier might include:

Potable water standing charge

Potable Water Standing Charge

This is a fixed daily charge that you have to pay, regardless of water usage. The standing charge goes towards maintaining the water infrastructure and networks across your region.

Potable Water Metered Rates

Potable Water Metered Rates

Your water meter will measure the volume you use and your water supplier will take regular meter readings to calculate your charge.

Wastewater standing charges

Wastewater Standing Charges

A fixed daily sewage charge that applies to your business regardless of wastewater production. This fee helps cover the ongoing maintenance of the entire sewage system.

Wastewater metered rates

Wastewater Metered Rates

Your business is charged for every cubic meter of wastewater that ends up in sewers. Your supplier will calculate this using your potable water meter reading.

Surface water drainage rates

Surface Water Drainage Rates

You pay a drainage charge based on your property size. It helps maintain the system and prevent floods (rainwater removal).

Trade effluent rates

Trade Effluent Rates

Trade effluent is any liquid that your business produces and discharges that isn’t regular sewage e.g food waste, chemicals etc.
