We're a national submetering and billing company that produces utility submetering solutions
Since 1957, we have continued to learn, grow and instill the very best service models to our customers while seeking to deliver the highest quality service, and exceeding our clients’ expectations. Think Utility Services began in the early 1990’s. It’s easy to implement submetering at multifamily buildings and other property types in Georgia. It was created to address the ever growing demand for domestic piping replacement caused by failing polybutylene pipes installed in the multi-family marketplace.
Our field experts bring the practical as well as technological knowledge and expertise to our submetering program. By installing and servicing our own systems, we meet and exceed the needs of the submetering industry and our Property Owners/Managers.
Since the inception of our Utility Services Department, we have installed over 100,000 meters. We currently read, invoice, and collect monthly on a significant portion of that portfolio.

Georgia State Submetering Policies
Georgia's 2010 Water Stewardship Act requires submetering of each new multi-unit residential building and certain retail and light industrial buildings granted a construction permit after July 1, 2012. Tenants in these new buildings must be charged for water and wastewater use based on their measured usage. The act also encourages, but does not require the installation of sub-meters in existing multi-unit buildings and for any office components of newly constructed multi-unit buildings. The act also allows an affected building's owner to seek reimbursement from tenants for common area water usage through an allocation based formula; allows the owner to charge a reasonable fee for establishing, servicing, and billing the tenant's water service; allows water companies to charge for sub-meter installations; relieves owners from liability that results from billing or meter-reading errors by an unaffiliated third-party; and allows the requirement to be temporarily waived under certain circumstances.
DeKalb County, GA, which provides public water service, enacted an ordinance in 2008 that requires sub-meters for any water supplied to a multi-unit residential building built after June 1, 2008. It allows multi-unit property owners or landlords to use the sub-meters to bill each tenant for their actual water use. It also requires water meters for any single family residence or condominium built after July 1, 2008.
