How much are yours and how many people are in your household?
We used to rent with family so haven't had our own bill for years and ours was $287.10 for 2 adults and 2 children (4.5yo and 15 months). Just wanting to see if this is pretty normal or not, DP thinks yes, I think it's a lot.

$142.50 a quarter. We live in a unit block in Sydney and every unit has this same flat rate.

There are 2 adults and DD in our house and ours is $237 this quarter, down from $300 last quarter. I was happy with that.
I wish mine was $80-$100 :lol:

Our last bill was $647 just for the excess, as we rent. Landlord pays the supply charge and first 34KL. That is for two adults and a 2 year old.
The issue with us is that once we use over 34KL the price goes up to $3.25 per KL and over 120KL it is $4.95 per KL which is pretty much double what it is else where in the country! But it's fair enough I suppose as our water comes from the Great Artesian Basin and goes through a private desalination plant so costly to provide.

Ours is ridiculously expensive. Our water provider has just built a multi million dollar water factory that we are all now paying for.
Our quarterly bill is around $400 and this includes actual water use of $95..
Wastewater availability connection is $244 and water availability $50.
We average .45kl of water a day for 2 adults and 3 kids..

I'm in Brisbane, and ours are about $250-$260 a quarter. More than half of that is access charges etc, as opposed to consumption.
We are two adults and a 3yo.
