You may not be able to save money on your next refill, but if you do, you can still save some cash on your bill.
In the past few weeks, you’ve probably heard about how water companies are charging you more for their water, but you might not know that those extra charges are part of a nationwide water savings program.
Here are five things you can do to get the most bang for your buck on your 2018 water bill.
Get a bill from a water company.
Water companies will send you a bill each month for the last 12 months of the year, showing you how much water you paid for and how much it cost you.
These bills are usually signed by the company’s general manager, so you can use them to compare rates.
Find out how much you’ll save.
In most cases, the cost of your water bill is a good indication of the value you’ll get.
However, you should always check the water company’s website to make sure it has accurate information.
Water bills can be updated on a regular basis, so make sure to check them often.
Call the company.
If you’re concerned about how your bill will be adjusted, call the company directly.
You can find out the current rate for each water outlet in your area, and if you’re in an area where there is an emergency, call 911 or call 311 to report a problem.
If your water company doesn’t send you the bill, you’ll have to pay for it yourself, which can add up quickly.
Ask for help.
If a company has been mis-pricing your water and is not offering any way to fix it, you may be able do something about it yourself.
Ask your water utility to help you with a water bill, or call a water advocacy group, such as Water Works of America or Citizens for Water.
If the water companies you’re using don’t have a billing system, they can provide you with an alternative.
Use your savings to pay your bills.
In some cases, you might be able get the full amount for the year on your first refill, or you might even save money if you’ve already used up all your unused water.
You should always consider the water you’ve used, and make sure you’re spending the money wisely.
You’ll also want to take into account your family’s health and the water quality in your community.
