Here’s the thing about plumbing issues: you likely don’t notice them at all until they are obvious. Perhaps your office kitchen floods or you notice the sound of rushing water behind a wall. If you’re a busy business owner, this is likely the last thing on your mind on a day-to-day basis, but if you let a plumbing problem get to this point then you are facing serious business interruption and costs. However, there are small—yet important—steps you can take to determine if you have a plumbing repair need before it becomes a catastrophe. Keep reading to learn more.
Monitor Water Bills
When you run a business, you keep a very close eye on your sales, budget, etc. But do you give the same attention to your water bills? Keep an eye on this, or assign an employee to do so. If a leak or pipe rupture occurs, your water bill is going to spike, and this certainly warrants calling a professional commercial plumber.
Check Your Meter
This is often difficult in larger commercial buildings, particularly if there is shared office space. However, if you can, try turning off all the plumbing appliances in your building and look at the water meter. If it continues to run, then water is leaking somewhere in your plumbing system.
Loss of Water Pressure
This is often the most obvious sign of a plumbing problem, but still one that can easily be dismissed by a hurried employee or business owner. The more your water pressure decreases, the worse of a problem you probably have. It’s typically a sign of a blockage or a rupture in your commercial plumbing system. Be sure to call the experts on our team to examine this further.
