I dont know if we are being scre88ed or what, but that past 3 months I get this very high water bills, and together with fines for too much water used. I checked my meter too, and from what I can figure, they do read the meter, because the calculations is right. According to the meter, I use 45 kiloliter per month, and thats the first time the past 3 months that we "use" so much water.
I checked, when no water is running inside the house, the meter stands still too, so there cant be water thats leaking. My wife wash clothes every second day, a bundle or 2, and we dont even water the pot plants anymore, no car washing, garden watering, nothing. So we just use water for washing clothes, bath (we do not have a shower), dishes, and coffee.
I dont mind paying all the fines (R700 fine this month), if we really uses it. But it doesn't makes sense.
