Over the years I've seen thousands of new construction and retrofit water submetering projects carried out throughout the United States. While I typically discuss such things such as submetering goals, technology, accuracy and longevity, today I'd like to talk about a sometimes overlooked and undervalued component; finding the correct plumber for the job, specifically in retrofit situations. 

Having issues recovering all of your property’s water consumption even though you have submeters? You are not alone, as this is a common problem we run into for a variety of reasons. Many people make the assumption that your master meter consumption should equal the aggregate of submetered consumption on a given site, given that every point using water is submetered.

Clients we speak with are typically in one of two categories; either a) Looking for a simple way to buy meters they already know they need or b) Deciding whether or not to meter and how to accomplish their goals for an existing community or an upcoming new construction build. Depending on which category you fall in, the purchasing path could vary. In this article we’ll discuss the two different situations and how these can be approached.

Before purchasing gas, electric or BTU meters, it’s always good to take pause and think through the overall objectives and make sure the appropriate components are being metered. Many times, owners or builders invest in metering, only to discover further down the road that the meters aren’t meeting their overall objectives for various reasons.
