Pay With an eCheck

Enter your bank account information once and you’re done — 9-digit routing number, account number and account name on your checks. Banks handle electronic checks like paper checks. There’s no transaction limit and they work for single or recurring payments (see AutoPay).

No Transaction Fee

Pay With a Credit/Debit Card

We accept VISA, MasterCard and Discover plus VISA and MasterCard debit cards. The transaction limit is $500. If we are about to shut your water off, call Customer Service at 619.466.0585 and give us the confirmation number for the transaction.

$3.95 Transaction Fee

Set Up AutoPay

Have Helix debit your checking or savings account the day your payment’s due (or up to 3 days prior for some banks). You’ll receive your water bill just like you do now. When you sign up for AutoPay, continue paying your bills until you receive a bill stub that says “AUTOPAY-DO NOT PAY”.

Use Your Bank's Service

We accept payments from banks’ online payment services. Ask your bank how they handle these transactions. If they mail paper checks, this can delay your payment up to a week. Avoid this method of payment if your account is near due or near shut-off.
