Maynilad Water Bill Online Guide | Moneymax

Maynilad has temporarily suspended its on-site meter readings, paper bill deliveries, and disconnections for overdue accounts. The water concessionaire has also given a 30-day extension on bill payment deadlines. All these measures[1] are meant to offer relief to Maynilad customers struggling with paying for their bills during the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

But that doesn’t mean you can totally forget about your Maynilad water bill. Throughout the ECQ period, Maynilad still charges customers based on their average water consumption for the past three months. Letting your unsettled bills pile up will hurt your finances later on.

Have you settled your Maynilad bill already? The easiest, fastest, and safest way to pay for your water bill is to use one of Maynilad’s accredited online or mobile payment facilities.

Here’s a quick and simple guide to Maynilad online bill payment channels.

To view your water bills online, you need to sign up for a Maynilad My Water Bill account.

There are three ways to register to Maynilad: through the My Water Bill online portal, SMS, or guided enrollment.
