I'll be in rented accommodation so if I do I'd be evicted. If i owned my house they'd have some trouble getting onto my property to install one.

Have people not been saying though that it would take forever (this is Ireland) to put these meters in every house?

Who said anything about a water meter? A flat fee per household is far more effective as a charge. So you can cancel your plans to commit criminal damage.

They dont install them on your property, there installed outside near your link to the mains.
I'd simply not pay it then, this didn't get through in the 90s and it won't now.
General taxation has been used to pay for this and waste services since the 19th century. If they were honestly concerned about water waste and leakage then they'd have a one off capital investment to repair the networks leaks then only have charges if you exceed a large allowance.
But this is a revenue and profit making measure, not an environmental one.

In many counties they have already been installed. Ours was installed earlier this year.

Perhaps the Greens might think more about the water pipes themselves, which I imagine dwarf the saved household use of water in terms of water lost through leaks. Perhaps also they might address the fact that the pipes have been laid so close to the surface that hard frosts every winter cause them to burst. Why go for householders first?

I will as we sunk our own well, we maintain it, we have to treat it at great expense & we pay for the electricity for the pump.

We have lovely water which the state didn't supply.

Swag Off state!!

The law for this to put them in new housing went through in 2004 while you were all jacking off about how much of an economic genius Bertie was and how much revenue the low tax policy and property boom brought in, nobody paid any attention to it at the time, they're already there.
