Design, Installation & Maintenance

System Equipment & Design

Submeter Solutions takes pride in our technical expertise with utility metering equipment and remote reading systems.   Our staff is trained through our internal “Meter University” and we continually evaluate the latest trends in our industry.   We sell many products from different manufacturers so that we have the flexibility to design and supply a system that fits the specifics of your project – at a price that provides our customers with value for their investment.

                                        

Design 

Every property is unique. Therefore we  specifically tailor our systems to best fit the specific details of the property layout, utility mechanical/electrical systems, and reading and billing service options based on your requests. And we are flexible – we’ll make sure that we deliver the systems and services that work for best you and your budget.

Return on Investment

Utility tariffs continue to rise year over year. An installed submetering system will allow you to recover these costs from residents. In addition, the system will also encourage residents to conserve their utility usage and quickly report expensive leaks. Although installing an effective submetering system requires an initial investment in equipment and installation, we’ll provide you with your expected Return on Investment (ROI) measured in months on our written proposals.

                                        

Metering Equipment

Submeter Solutions is a distributor for a number of utility meter and Automated Meter Reading (AMR) system manufacturers. We  carefully select equipment that is known for high quality and that meets all accuracy and regulatory requirements.  Visit our online estore under the SHOP menu to find our comprehensive list of submetering equipment.

Installation & Maintenance

Whether your project is new construction or retrofit, Marina or Manufacturing Housing Community, small Triplex or Highrise, Submeter Solutions will partner with you to ensure that the installation of your new metering system is performed properly.  Meters should be installed by a qualified and licensed plumbing or electrical contractor.  We’ll work with your contractor or suggest one to use.   Typically, wireless remote reading systems will be installed by our trained and certified technicians at the property. 

For systems that we perform the resident billing, we will help you keep the property maintained by alerting you of non-reporting meters, excessive utility usage, system outages, etc.

 Project Management

Submeter Solutions assigns a project manager to every new installation.  Our manager will coordinate with the client and the contractors at each phase of the installation process. 

Commissioning Services

After installation, a Submeter Solutions technician will fully test and commission the new metering system to insure that meters are operating properly and all remote reading equipment is accurately reporting meter data. 

 Manufactured Housing Communities

Depending on the details of the water lines, we will determine if a new water Submeter can be installed under the home or outside in a meter pit.  When installed under the home, the water meter will be provided to the plumber in an insulation kit t o inhibit freezing.   We’ll train the installing plumber on all details of installing the meter and transmitter. 

Small Property – NoWire Installation

Our NoWire wireless meter reading system for properties with 32 or less meter points is designed to be simple to install.  We’ll configure meters and transmitters and label them with the unit number prior to shipping.    The plumber or electrician simply has to install the meter since the wireless transmitter has already been “wrapped and strapped” to the meter.  The NoWire display unit simply needs to be mounted on the wall and plugged in. 

For most projects, a technician does NOT need to visit the property to install a metering system using NoWire.
