SME's and the Open Water Market

Wheatley commissioned a survey of 500 SMEs in 2017 with the aim of being one of the first studies to be conducted following the deregulation of the water market.

Knowing that much attention has been paid to the water companies themselves, Wheatley wanted to try and find out how the deregulation might be seen by those companies that this affects – the businesses that can now switch. So how do SMEs view the opening of competition? And does the physical location of the SMEs affect how they see the open water market?

We've put all our research results onto a microsite. And there's even a white paper for you to download too.


The results from the same survey, but a year on. That's right, we ran the survey again in 2018 to compare the year on year changes. It's not quite ready to share yet, but check back soon because it won't be long!



First time here? Our ‘About’ page will tell you all about Wheatley Insights, why we put it together, and our aims.

Read On OK, Thanks
