Invoice and meter readings match.
    I do not have a pool and pay only about 100 pesos/month for what I consume + the fixed fee
    If I double the consumed amount for any reason it is still only 100 pesos more, 500 pesos instead of 400 pesos monthly, not breaking the bank.

    No guesswork needed.

    btw, I did not experience any day last year without water delivered, although low pressure three days almost every week. I can’t complain as I feel lucky

    The law mandates that you pay for water, even if your water comes from a well. So that should not come as a surprise.

    El agua de pozo se paga y por qué?
    a. Debe pagarse un 50% del gasto correspondiente a una acometida normal, y se debe pagar porque la ley así lo manda. (ver enlace de la ley del agua), http://www.senado.gov.do/masterlex/M...11/18/3001.htm.

    a. 50% of the expense corresponding to a normal connection must be paid, and must be paid because the law mandates it. (see water law link), http://www.senado.gov.do/masterlex/M...11/18/3001.htm.

    Or community well is paying it’s all over the place and every month it is different amount..most don’t even pay the bill..

    That amount depends upon the initial bribe you paid when making the agreement on that monthly amount.
