    Did you mean every 4 months? - since that's the WSD billing cycle

    I accidentally paid my 1-month electricity bill into the water account several years ago (online banking) and I haven't had to pay a water bill since.

    You manage to use less than 11.74 cubic meters of water per 4 months? (e.g. by being a very low user; or by virtually never being at home?)

    Water bills are about 5x higher in the UK

    So 1 year of a UK water bill is about 5 years of HK water bill usage

    We pay about HKD100 PER MONTH here in Phils, and there is no sewerage (septic tank).

    I get great satisfaction from comparing my usage to mean household usage on these statements. Clearly I'm much cleaner than the average person, Unwashed Environmentalists be damned.
