Are Serafe billing 365/12 = CHF 30.41 per month, instead of 365/365 = CHF 1 per day, the charge indicated on their website?

Surely Group 3 households are not being charged (2 x 30.41) = CHF 60.82 for Jan + Feb 2019, instead of (31 + 28) = CHF 59? If they are, the excess of CHF 1.82, multiplied by (3,600,000/12) = 300,000 Group 3 households, would make a tidy excess charge of CHF 546,000.

Can any Group 3 householder confirm what bill they received for Jan + Feb?
In this photo in today's "24 heures" I can see that the sum on a Serafe payment slip is CHF 60.85, so presumably that is what they are billing Group 3 households for Jan + Feb, instead of CHF 59 at CHF 1 per day. So the excess charge for the 300,000 households in that group actually totals CHF 555,000.

If Serafe are billing the 300,000 Group 4 households 3 x 30.41 = CHF 91.23 for Jan + Feb + Mar instead of (31 + 28 + 31) = 90 x 1 = CHF 90, there is also an excess charge of 1.23 x 300,000 = CHF 369,000 for that group. Even more if they round up to CHF 91.25, and still CHF 360,000 excess if they round down to CHF 91.20.

Then if they bill Group 5 households CHF 121.65 for Jan + Feb + Mar + Apr instead of (31 + 28 + 31 + 30) = 120 x 1 = CHF 120, there is an excess charge of CHF 495,000 for that group. A further CHF 450,000 excess for Group 6 if they bill 365/2 = CHF 182.50 instead of (31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30) = CHF 181, etc.
