About Us – Metron Sustainable Services

Metron Sustainable Services focuses entirely on submetering. The parent company, based in Boulder, Colorado, has been providing advanced water metering solutions for over thirty years to complex and mission-critical municipalities across the United States.

Metron is one of the leading providers of water meters and internet- accessible water consumption data. It was only natural to bring the company’s significant expertise in water metering to mobile home parks and multiple dwelling facilities.

It was an ‘untapped’ market for our turnkey, smart-water technology approach. With the industry’s highest data resolution and AMI reporting, Metron Sustainable Services filled a niche early on. The company fabricates and assembles much of its product in Colorado and has enjoyed a reputation for quality manufacturing that stands the test of time …. and weather!


Submetering is a way of getting control of escalating water costs, distributing the resource’s cost fairly based on actual consumption per unit, and limiting waste of precious fresh water.


According to Mobile Home University, and Frank and Dave themselves, Metron’s solution for mobile home parks is the “best utility submetering option in the industry.” They go on to say that they are our biggest fans! Here’s why they love us: “the meters are amazingly accurate and strong…. they can alert you when there’s a leak and can save you thousands of dollars a year.”


Here’s what one client had to say about the ease of working with us in his park, getting the submeters installed and gathering information from the software starting on day one:


“It really gives peace of mind to me and my tenant, knowing our billing reflects exactly their use.”
