Larry asks:

I already have a water meter installed in the manhole outside the house so does it have to be changed for a Big Phil Special edition? I understand all houses build since about 1999 have meters as standard so what’s the position. Thoughts?

HOUSEHOLDS WILL pay an average of €39 per annum over 20 years to cover the cost of the loan from the National Pension Reserve Fund to install water meters in one million Irish homes.

Government sources confirmed yesterday the cost per household, based on the size of the NPRF loan, would work out at about €780, but that the cost would be levied as a standing charge over a period of two decades, in much the same way as such charges are already imposed by other utilities such as the ESB and Bord Gáis.

Oh, Joe Higgins is going to love this.
