Come home to find my whole street has had water meters fitted, and my neighbour and I don't recall any correspondence with Southern Water about meters being fitted.
I thought you had to request a meter?
Anyone else being forced onto a meter?

Not yet, but this quote from Southern Water looks like it will be inevitable...
"...the government has identified our water supply area as an area of serious water stress and has given us the power to meter all of our water supply customers by 2015."

Why is it when it's stuff you don't want, they're massively ahead of the deadline?
Pound gets you a penny if there was a deadline of 2020 for BT Infinity around my way, I'd get mine on 31st December 2019.
Yes the dreaded water meter, we had one fitted.
Though its fare to pay for what you use it soon becomes apparent that you use quite alot.
The thing that gets me more is that you have to pay to dispose of said water, i.e pay twice
Which they recycle and sell back again.
If it's yellow, let it mellow, if it's brown, FLUSH IT DOWN - saves a fortune
Not to mention charging you for collecting rainwater you haven't used that falls on your house. Although they don't charge me anything, private drainage...
