Irish Water customers 'to pay €188 per hour' to fix leaks
Householders could be asked to pay €188 per hour for an engineer from Irish Water.
The Examiner reports that the hourly rate will be charged for a call-out in response to complaints about potential waterpipe or meter problems.
It also claims this cost will rise to €282 per hour if the request is made out of hours.
From January, the average household will pay €278 in water charges annually.
Any issues to do with water pressure, rotting or leaking pipes will also be the responsibility of the householder.
