Dispute a water charge - public housing
If you think your water bill is too high, you should first check to see if there's a leak.
If there is no leak and you still believe your water charge is incorrect, contact Housing SA and tell them you want to dispute the charge.
How to check for a water leak
- Take a reading from the water meter last thing at night.
- Take a second reading first thing the next morning.
- Make sure that no water is used in between the readings - eg flushing the toilet.
- If the water meter reading has changed this may indicate that you have a leak.
If your property has a shared meter and you think there may be a leak, contact Housing SA Maintenance as soon as possible to organise an investigation.
