Just checked our first bill from 2018, 

18m2 all included €87 for 3 months. So it does sound a bit expensive. Try posting a picture of your bill, and someone might be able to explain it to you.

Is this your first water bill? If so, it’ll be for up to six months. Water and rubbish standing charge is paid three months up front. You may have paid three months in arrears and three months up front. Have a look at the dates. Your next one should be more reasonable.

Hi,

I've also just had my first water bill which seems to cover period 8/8/18 to 18/10/18 at a cost of 104 euros and I've only used 4m cubed water. It states it's a quarterly bill. The charges for Basura and Saneamiento are also on there. Are these a yearly charge in advance does anyone know?

Cheers

Ian

Hi,

My bill was 128.23,I rang the company & they were very helpful,they put in a complaint for me & gave me  a reference number, said this would be resolved in 2 weeks.That was last Wednesday & this morning I received an  email saying my bank account would be credited with 44.39.

Just wondering how many people just pay up & dont query their bills
