Why Switch Business Water Suppliers?

If you have never switched business water suppliers, you could see a large saving on your annual water bill. Many businesses are not aware that the business water market is now gone through deregulation. This means that businesses in England and Scotland can switch water services offering cheaper rates.

As we already help businesses save hundreds of pounds each year on their business energy, it is only natural we help them reduce their water bill.

You can start your switch today by completing our business water comparison form.

The amount your business could save by switching water suppliers will depend on your business size, location, and your water usage. The regional lottery on water rates has resulted in some businesses in the UK being overcharged by up to 65%. 

By switching your water supplier, you can take advantage of new competitive rates by comparing prices from a range of providers.

What Are the Benefits of Comparing Business Water Prices?

Some of the benefits of switching your business water supplier include:

  • Lower water rates

    The most obvious benefit of switching business water suppliers is lower bills. There are substantial differences in the tariffs offered by the leading water providers.

    The price you will be paying prior to switching will depend on where you are based in the UK. Some suppliers even offer discounts for direct debit payments. You cannot switch suppliers if your business is in Wales. 

  • Consolidated Billing

    The deregulation of the water market provides a great opportunity for companies with multiple business premises to consolidate their bills.

    Previously, if you had sites in different areas of the country, you would be forced to deal with several water suppliers with separate billing and various customer service teams.

    Your business can choose one provider to supply all your sites with one national agreement and consolidated billing.

  • Improved customer service

    Businesses are no longer required to stay with the water supplier in their area. This means customer services for water services will have to improve to keep their customers. The power of choice places UK businesses in control.

    Businesses now have the option of switching water suppliers if they are unhappy with the customer service they are receiving from their current provider.

Should I Switch Business Water Supplier?

If you have not switched in over 12 months, or have never switched, you will be able to switch to a cheaper deal. With growing competition in the UK water market, businesses are urged to treat their water services like their energy.

If you’re unsure about switching, you can request a water audit. Many businesses can add to their savings by simply improving its water efficiency.

If you spend over £1,000 on your water bills annually, you can even receive your water audit completely free of charge.

Your water audit will cover:

  • Usage and consumption checks
  • Drainage checks
  • Sanitary checks
  • Return to sewer checks

Your business will receive an in-depth report on your water rates and usage to discover how to save money.

Business Water FAQs

  • How Long Does It Take To Switch Business Water?

    It usually takes around 28 days to switch water supplier. This includes a ‘cooling off’ period from your previous retailer. Your new supplier will also set up your new direct debit if that is how you choose to pay.

  • Will My Water Supply Cut Off Whilst Switching?

    Your water supply will remain on and fully operational during your switch. We will only change the supplier who manages the supply - your water pipes will remain the same and untouched.

  • How Do I Find My Current Business Water Supplier?

    If you’ve never switched business water providers, it’s likely your water services will still be supplied by your regional water provider.

    The easiest way to find out the name of your business water supplier is to look at your most recent bill. All water bills have one thing in common. You will always find the name of your supplier on the bill. This information is usually the first thing you will see on the bill or is at least in the top half of the bill.

  • What Happens if I Don’t Switch Water Suppliers?

    If you've never switched your business water supplier you will remain with your incumbent regional provider.

    You're likely to have been transferred to a default tariff by your supplier. These tariffs can be much more costly than negotiated tariffs.

    By comparing with us, you can quickly find the latest water deals and switch to a tariff that best suits the needs of your business.
