Did you know you are now allowed to switch water suppliers?

That’s right, you now have the option to choose the water supplier for your business, all thanks to the non-domestic retail market deregulation in 2017.

So, what does this mean for your water contract?

It means you don’t have to be with the supplier you were originally with, you’re not mandated any more.

This could be the perfect time to take a look at your bills, check your contract and potentially switch over.

How are commercial water rates calculated?

Commercial water differs from domestic and generally can be cheaper, however there are still various factors that influence what your water rates will be. As a business it’s important to understand the specific terms and conditions of your water supply contract with the supplier. Thankfully, our helpful team is on hand to help with this.

Water Consumption

Your water rates are often based on the volume of water consumed by your business or property. This is usually measured in cubic meters (m³) or litres. By having a water meter installed it is able to track the amount of water used so you are billed accordingly.

Property Type and Size

The type and size of your business can influence the water rates. Larger properties or those with higher water consumption due to their nature of operations might be subject to higher rates.

Industry Classification

Some industries are considered to have higher water usage or specific water treatment requirements. As a result, water rates might be tailored to the needs of the industry.

Sewage Charges

Commercial water bills often include charges for sewage treatment and wastewater disposal. These charges are typically based on a percentage of the water consumption, as not all the water used ends up as wastewater.


Water rates can vary from region to region in the UK due to differences in water availability, infrastructure costs, and regulatory factors.
