Monday, February 17th, 2014 at 1:49 pm

Plumbing for businesses is not much different at the basic level than plumbing for homes. The difference lies in scope. Not only is the plumbing system of a business much more extensive than in a home, it also receives far more use and must handle an enormous volumes of fresh water and wastewater. Providing repairs for commercial plumbing systems requires special skill and equipment. It also requires plumbers who know city codes and will make sure that your plumbing meets those requirements.

3 repairs we often do for commercial plumbing

  • Unclogging drains: No matter where you are, from a small cabin to a huge warehouse, plugged drains are problems. If your business has restrooms or a kitchen, you will probably run into clogs more often than any other problem. Unlike residential clogs, which are often solvable with a plunger, commercial systems receive enough use that clogs will require professional assistance to eliminate.
  • Sewer line repairs: As a business owner, you are responsible for the sewer line that carries all the wastewater from your property until it reaches the municipal line on the street. Damage to this main line (which often happens because of construction projects) can lead to catastrophic problems, such as flooding in bathrooms and damage to the foundations of the building. Basement storage areas are especially susceptible. These fixes are often extensive, but they need to be taken care of by professionals immediately.
  • Sealing leaks/pipe replacement: One of the most frequent troubles that can occur in a business is collapsing ceiling tiles because of water leakage. All building material will suffer damage when leaks occur, but the light material of ceiling tiles is the quickest to deteriorate. However, this is an excellent warning sign of leaking trouble, since most pipe leaks occur out of sight until they become serious problems. Professional plumbers can use leak detection equipment to locate all the pipe leaks and stop the potential damage it can do to the building. Plumbers can seal leaks or perform pipe replacements if necessary.
