we xferd last june and it shows in our bill that no consumption (meter reading) up to this month. we are only paying to the other charges. i called the cust service ask for advice and literally i asked for service man to have it check. this man said it would cost 50 riyals for the service he said suggested to wait for the next bill.

goodness makes me worried!

you're not alone, dear :)

I am too getting bills for 3-4 months with no reading but fixed charge (Imagine, I've been on vacation means there shouldn't be NO/less water consumption in that period).

response to complain : water meter not working, is that my (consumer's) problem??

But I pay.........!

IMO It's peaceful to pay than breaking my head with stress dealing with socalled "customer driven" service!!

im not sure if they're locking of meter reader staff (whatever they call it) or it is the meter itself that has a problem.

well if the reading is zero..u need to check ur water meter..if the digital screen is blank....then meter needs to be replaced...for that u need to make a complaint at the service centre...which will take approx 2 months to change till then u pay Qr.150/- other charges....then somebody will change ur meter...[no once calls to notify the change] u will still be billed Qr.150/- ..

..u then need to take a picture of the new meter along with the reading and the meter serial number to get it registered with them ....wait for another 1 month....once the new meter gets registered in the billing system then the reading will start...u have to do everything and follow up...nobody will call u...remember...it took me 5 months to get all this sorted out....have patience...I wish u all the best...

I have moved in to a flat in February 2011 at Fareej Abdul Aziz. Previous owner settled his Kahramaa and handed over to land lord. The land lord was settled the final payment by April 2011 and ask me to change in my name. I have registered in my name in Kahramaa by April 2011 and last December I have applied for disconnection while vacating the flat. It was told me that the water meter was not running and I have to pay QR150.00 / month and for 4 years. I have shocked and checked with land lord's office and they told they cannot do anything. The problem was with previous 2 owners. They were seeing the problem and not reported to Kahramaa (including land lord). I paid around 6K and I told the land lord about this and informed to new owner who came to the flat. Hope someone will take action. I am sharing this and advise to oversee the bill amount and meter reading for every bill. If it repeats please complaint to Kahramaa. As per Kahramaa that is our responsibility. Thanks.
