As I understand it, water supply (and therefore meters) are usually fitted via your town hall. It sounds like you may have to pay to fit a new, separate connecting pipe to the mains (usually just outside in the street) - and then have the meter installed. Our town hall insists that the water meter is installed "into" an outside wall (to enable it to be read without having to access the property). It also takes the opportunity to replace any old lead pipes - at your expense. Be prepared... it isn't cheap.

Hi thanks for the info, I will go the Maries office when we are next there. We have already been to see him about the problem, and he said not for him as Lyonnaise deau control the water. But worth another try obviously our Marie not as good as yours.Odette
