Tshwane Metropolitain Municipality Util / Escalating Utility and Rates bills

1 South Africa Review updated:
Contact information:

I relocated to Pretoria in May. I had to pay a deposit to have my utilities activated. My utility bill increased on average by R200 per month.

This month's bill arrived and it was a whopping R1500. Nearly double from the previous month. After many phone calls - which either gets cut of, or end up holding nearly 30 minutes, I was told that this was due to an increase in my deposit. How can you increase a deposit three months later? The point is, the deposit for service activation was paid upon commencement of the contract. It's a fixed amount. This is daylight robbery. What's their excuse going to be next month?

    Could you please help?
    I have recently renovated bathrooms in my house and need to know if the contractor is registerd with Tshwane Metro to do the plumbing work as the quality of workmanship is at question.
