Water Bill Charges

Hello, So I am wondering if anyone else here gets charged for water fixtures on their water bill. Particularly speaking of non-metered bills. I own a small ranch style home and my bill has always been double of my friends or family. My last bill was $1000+ where as others are usually around $500.

I was told by Dept of Water that only properties larger than single family homes get charged for water fixtures, and my property is classified as a single family home, but I still get charged for the water fixtures.

Anyone else with a relatively small home have the same experience?

  • You can likely pay for the asbestos work with the savings in the water bill. It’s simple math. The nonmetered accounts will keep paying more and more.

    We have a single family home and our old non metered bill did indicate we had two outdoor spigots so I assume that factored into our bill before we had the meter installed.

    Your neighbors are not being charged because their extra spigots/fixtures have gone unnoticed, whether by chance or some other process.

  • You may have a water leak. If you request a meter they will be able to tell you immediately if there is a leak. They will also let you know if you have water running constantly if you have a meter installed. I have received letters regarding a tenant running the water for 2 hours.

Great and informative night to launch the new extension of the training area at the Bank of America branch on Fullerton and Laramie avenues. We toured this facility for an exclusive look of the first Community Financial Center in the city of Chicago and a new Preferred Sales & Small Business Contact Center. I would like to thank the executices of Bank of America for their invitation to the ribbon cutting of the new center’ where the new employees will be fully trained using the most advanced and innovative technology. We are proud to having this branch in the 31st Ward (Belmont-Cragin), which will announce the hiring of more personnel.

Locksmith needed

Anyone have a locksmith to recommend? A spring broke, causing the pin to drop, making the deadbolt useless. Luckily I have 2 deadbolts on that door, so I can secure my home, but this needs to be fixed. Thanks!

  • If you are at all handy take off the broken lock and take it to a hardware store / Lowes / Home depot and ask for a replacement. If it is a standard lockset it will fit into the old hole. Can't get cheaper than that.
