    Water Bill

    Advertisements
    How much is a normal water bill for basically one person?

    This summer it was outrageous - 70-80$ a month. I figured it was because I was using my sprinkler system to water my grass. So, I turned it off and haven't used it in two months.

    The past two months the water bill has still been 40$. I was thinking it should be like 25$ a month.

    I shower once a day, two loads of laundry a week, one dishwasher load a week, And maybe one bath a week.

    I'm wondering if I have a leak or something.

    Wow we have a family of six and it has never been over 20 bucks where we live at now and we use alot of water. But it differs from state to state cause back home it was 200 to 300 every two months.

    It depends on how much they charge. Does your bill say how many gallons you're using?

    it depends on what the rate is for your city. for my gma, her water & sewer bill is ~$70/mth.

    you may want to check to see how your water & sewer bills get charged. for my grandma, how much ever water she uses also equals what they charge her from a sewer standpoint. since she waters her lawn, she bought a special meter to attach to her garden hose. she reads that every month that she is watering her lawn & reports it, so she doesn't pay sewer fees on it.

    When I was in an apartment I used to pay no more than $32 just for my self. Now in a house we pay around $85-$100 every three months for the two of us.

    My usage for the last month was 2000 gallons. The month before was 2200, the month before that was 11,900 (using sprinkler).

    Sewer is constant.

    i think it depends on a lot of different factors, where you live, whether your on sewer or septic, how much you use of course. and the list goes on....lol
