Thanks South East Water for putting my front tap and water meter directly in front of the path way to my front door....and thanks for charging me $275 for the privilege of moving it 2 inches to the right so I can make a straight path to the front door without going "around" the water meter!!
They tell me it's common practice to put these water meters "in the middle of the block" but I say, doesn't anyone like to show a bit of common sense when installing these meters?? It's not like the house isn't directly in front of them so they can see if its going to be a problem or not. Or maybe its a good way to make extra revenue. I'm furious!!
Any one else had this problem??

We've built twice and both times they were bang in the middle of the front garden. We moved it the first time because it looked ridiculous and the second time because we were having a driveway past the front of the house. We used a plumber to move them - he was a lot cheaper than $275!
