Why did their charges change in April 2015?
The standard unmeasured home bill is plummeting by 1.2%, while the normal measured home bill is dipping by 5.0%.
The difference between the two kinds is because to Ofwat’s requirements as to how the total cost increase should be applied.
The changes will enable them to:
- Cut leakage by47 million liters every day between 2010 and 2015 to assure that they have enough water to meet the requirement of their customers.
- Capitalize around £10 million so that they can review nearly one million home to determine and solve low water pressure instigated by shared supply pipes.
- Invest about £6 million to secure treatment works from floods that will help around 650,000 households.
- Invest more than £115 million so that about one and a half million regulars can be served by more than one source of water. This will decrease the risk of floods that caused service failure.

My water doesn’t have any pressure, or isn’t coming out properly. What should I do?
There are a few possible explanations if you are experiencing no water pressure or low water pressure. The first thing that you should do in this situation is to check if there is any news on water issues in your area.
It may be the case that this is an existing problem that has already been brought to the public’s attention and is affecting other houses in your area.
If you’ve already looked into whether there are issues affecting your area and you haven’t found anything, then the next step is to get in touch with Severn Trent customer services to report the problem and gain their advice and guidance on what to do next.
What method do Severn Trent use to calculate my bill?
If you’re on a water meter then Severn Trent will follow a procedure to predict your charges over the coming year for a period of 12 months. This is done based on your regular usage, using past bills to estimate your future bills.
Severn Trent will continue to check your water meter and then adjust your bills accordingly to ensure that you are never paying too much or too little.
If on the other hand, you don’t have a water meter in your property then Severn Trent will simply charge you a certain amount per year. They will also subtract any existing credit balance in your account from your annual charge. You may choose to pay your annual water charge in instalments. If you have additional queries call the Severn Trent phone number on this page.
