Water, Electric and Sewer.

How much are you paying, we just moved into a rental place and we are trying to anticipate the highest it could be.
Our last house which we just sold for the 5 of us was:
$50 for water a month, it was a flat rate
$166 for electric was our highest bill for 1300sq ft
The sewer is what is really throwing us off because we have never had sewer before always septic.

  • The sewage will vary from place to place, here even if you use NO WATER, you have to pay a $25 service fee every month for sewage. So for my $65 water bill, I usually pay about $50 a month for sewage...

    If I lived in the next town over, I would only pay half that...

  • There is 4 of us usually...
    Our house is 1800sq ft.
    The most we have spent on electric (JULY) was 350... least was 180
    Water most: 100 Least:60 (this includes our sewer, water, and trash)

    Not sure if that helps...

  • Water is paid for by my apartment complex and sewer i think is included in my basic electric combo....the highest my electric bill has ever been was 129 in dead winter!! I have been told that you can call companies and get estimates for the previous renter so you can make your budget!
