Dogs barking this morning and see neighbor chasing down water meter reader waving bill - hear him mention Covid.  Check our bill and increased from 343 to 496 (and this month one less unit).

Does not explain all of the increase but for the last 3 months there has been a 20% discount. has that finished this month? (our bills do not come until the 8/9th)

Bangkok, Latphao (MWA)

Last month there was a 153 baht deduction for covid which is not there this month so expect a lot of people with tight budgets may have issues.

This waterbill discount thing is BS they give you 20% discount but the month after you get 30% increase so they still take 10% . Thailand is the same as everywhere around the world , nothings free only the sun coming up in the morning . One way or another you will always be paying for your discounts or gifts .

Money for nothing and the chicks are free if you play on MTV. I've not really noticed water bill reductions, but MEA really did us dirty the last 2 months. June, no need to pay... No, cannot pay. July, pay June & July together. Ouch.

Fortunately I just used the money to pay other bills and can make up the difference this month, but that was really a useless gesture.

My house is built close to a small Thai weekend resort development, we take water from them at a flat rate of 500 Baht per month for unlimited supply.  Its looking like a good deal right now.

The OP was talking about a difference of Bht 150. What other bills have YOU got for that amount which you can now pay this month?

200bht for me this month. I think it was 20bht off during COVID.

Used to be 400bht but I found a leaky joint and fixed it.

My building in Pattaya actually gave me 2 months of free water.

Just got my bill for last month it is up from the normal.

But, I have had girls in my room almost everyday one shower in and one out.

So, the bill is higher but I certainly am not going to complain about 4 dollars..

Bangkok MWA rates per Cubic Meter used still the same...8.5 baht/cubic meter. Hasn't changed since 1999.  Throw in the monthly meter/service, raw water, and VAT fees you have the total cost. 

 

Now that the COVID discounts are over, monthly water bills should reflect normal charges again.  if a person's water bill went way up there's probably a water leak or maybe the meter reader made a mistake.  Meters themselves do go bad but usually when they go bad it's due to corrosion/breakage that causes the reading to be low; never high.

MWA Water Bill Calculator....always matches my actual bill to the stang.  Be sure to pick R1 Shelter if living in a home.....and determine your water meter size which will probably be either a 3/4 or 1/2 inch....3/4 inch seems to be the most used for homes.

They must have a very tight budget if they can't afford paying the water bill.

If you consider 500 baht/month a good deal, then you must have a big family. Even if you have "unlimited" supply does that mean you shower 15 min instead of 5 minutes and let the water run just for fun? 500 baht is imo a lot of water.

Wow, high prices for you guys.

I live on 1 rai, average water costs 100 thb/month,  only in 'summer' time when have to give water to the plants and trees 200 thb, that's all.
