How To Update Your Address with Welsh Water

If Welsh Water is your water or sewerage provider and you’re moving into, out of or within their area you must complete a Welsh Water moving house process.

Both your new and previous water & sewerage providers need to know you’re moving. This is best done a couple of weeks before you move home, but if you’re delayed it can still be processed easily.

Here’s the quickest and simplest way to complete the Welsh Water home move and other address changes:

  • Head over to SlothMove’s moving home platform
  • Select who needs to know you’re moving (water, council, HMRC, electoral roll etc…)
  • Enter your info (previous address, date of move etc…)
  • Click submit and we’ll update your addresses automatically

You can also update your address with Welsh Water by phone (0800 052 0145) or creating an account online here.  If you do this directly you’ll also need to contact your previous water provider, council and other services. You can see a full list of everyone you need to contact in our moving home checklist

To complete the Welsh Water moving house process you will need to provide:

  • Previous address
  • New address
  • Customer number 
  • Meter reading (if you live in a metered property)

It’s important to complete the Welsh Water moving home process. When moving you will have two scenarios: 

  • You are an exisiting customer and will be joining another water company
  • You will remain existing customer, you’re just moving within Welsh Water’s jurisdiction

In both cases you need to let Welsh Water know you’ve moved house.

Firstly, this will ensure you get an accurate bill. By letting them know when you moved out you will prevent the accrual of additional charges. if you are due a refund you will also be paid that.

Secondly, it will prevent a utilities overlap in which you are paying for both water providers at the same time.

And finally, this will help with your data protection security. As a home mover the last thing you want is your mail going to someone else.

If you want to get all of your addresses updated in one place you may wish to use our moving home service.
