Why should you switch water suppliers?

Our independent research shows that as many as one in three businesses have previously been overcharged on their business water rates. We’d recommend a water audit as this will help us figure out where you have been overcharged, which can be claimed back.

There are 2 factors that determine whether you can switch your business water supplier – 1) Is your company predominantly business based or domestic? 2) Where is your waterboard or water provider based?

The deregulation is now live in England and Scotland, however, if your commercial water supplier is in Wales then you cannot switch water supplier yet, unless you use a large amount of water.

As of 1st April 2017 the non-domestic water market was deregulated. This means that like Gas and Electricity, all businesses within England (not Wales) can now choose which company supplies their water and waste water services.

While the water wholesaler will be determined by the region, the supplier can be chosen by you. The changes came after the successful deregulation of water in Scotland in 2008.

You are likely to save money, however, for the first several years of the deregulation it may not be as dramatic as you would hope. However, in time we will see increased competition and differences in prices between suppliers. The current savings in the Scottish market are between 10 – 25%, depending on the mark up charges, but they have been deregulated since 2008.

We have found that savings can be made and rebates can be claimed through having a water audit.

Call us today to discuss your business water requirements and we can guide you through the process of switching and undertaking a water audit.

New companies have entered the market, many of these have a utilities background. Recently, more energy suppliers have added water to their list of services and others will be teaming up with regional water companies. Some regional water companies now operate on a national basis and some have chosen to withdraw completely – leaving those with contracts having to change water supplier.

If you have not secured a water contract since April 2017 you will have automatically been put onto a default tariff with your existing water supplier should they continued to operate, bear in mind they may have changed trading name.

Business water bills vary in value depending on your commercial location, company size and usage.
