Paying Water Bill


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to pay your water bill if you don't have the bill itself without the need to go to the water authority office near Tesco Lotus Chang Puek?

 

I wondered if they had some possible workaround due to covid concerns.

 

Thanks in advance.

You could get it set up that your water bill is automatically paid via your Thai bank account.  I set that up a decade+ ago.  I don't remember exactly how I did it but, if I recall right, I got some form from SCB and then gave it to the water authority (or, alternatively, got the form from the water authority and gave that to SCB).

 

A second option, presuming you have online access with your Thai bank account, is to simply use your bank's phone app to pay a bill directly from your account.  I can do that with the SCB bank app on my phone (likely can do it on the computer too) but I'm not sure how other Thai banks set that up.  Since I have my electric and water bills set up to be paid automatically from my Thai bank account, I only use the SCB phone app to pay the monthly True bills.

Thanks for the reply.  Unfortunately I don't have the account details that's the issue.  

 

Does anyone know how long it takes before they cut your water off, is it after 2 months of non-payment for example?

should be no problem if you go to the office of the water cy., taking some details of the monthly bill before with you.

Last month I did miss my electrical bill, and going to the office with the former paid bill, allowed the lady to search quickly the computer and print me a bill in order to pay.

You can use an old bill if you still have one. The bar code will bring up your present balance. I’ve paid bills at 7-11 numerous times this way.

 

Unfortunately I do not have access to an old bill and am not at home.  I guess I will just get my wife to call them and see what happens....
