Wet, Wet, Wet ... Shock, shock, shock ...

That's all its been today.
Not a lot to write home about
It has poured with rain all day and been very dank and dark!
We also had a horrible shock in the post this morning
A water bill for £1,686.22!!!
As we have a meter and our last bill was for £157.17 we were aghast to say the least!
Phoned the water board.
Read the meter - the dials were going round at a vast rate!
Told the water board.
They said - read it again with your stop-cock under the sink turned off.
We did 
The dials were still going round at a phenomenal rate!
They are coming to sort it out (hopefully) on Friday
We only hope the fault is not on OUR side of the water meter!
Fingers crossed.

WOW! Unbelieveable. Keep us posted -this can't be down to you.

No, we hope not. It is worrying though. At least if it is down to us our insurers say they will pay up. Relief! If its outside the confines of our property, then the water board will be liable!

Has happened to us - twice - both times on our side of the water meter but we were covered by Homeserve who did a super job the first time - not the second time - they then had to give us a refund so am still in credit with South West Water.
Do hope yours is sorted out quickly. Sue
