Anyone else had problems?
I know they were "done" a few years for make false claims on people.
I have wasted a extraordinary amount of time trying to get sense out Southern Water. They apparently don't charge anything for my house, they should but they actually seem to be too daft to send out a bill, they used to but got the wrong address and have now stopped.
However they sent us bill for £4,500 for our Community Centre, now we don't actually have a swimming pool just lavatories (US bathrooms) male and female upstairs and downstairs (no baths though) and a single sink, no way could we use that amount of water. Our plumber made a check for leaks, we have none which as the building was gutted seven years ago and all the plumbing renewed would have been unlikely.
Apart from getting postcodes on the bill wrong and the street a bit wrong, they still insist we have £4,500 to pay. All this has been going since April. We can't afford to pay it.
If you have an account with "Southern Water" cancel your bankers order, get them to check your meter it is most probable either faulty or they are charging you for other peoples water.
It looks as though we are going to have to close the Community Centre over Christmas, because we can't afford the water, that is going to result in people in real need not having anywhere to meet, including the refugees who are fed from the Centre. A good story for the press.
Does anyone have the addresses of any of "Southern Waters" directors? The answer is obviously to drop round and discuss the matter with them, I might take one of my parishioners, "Wee Joe" to play carols on his highland pipes with me. An even better story for the press!
