Commercial plumbing is not like residential plumbing. When a problem comes up, it could have major consequences if it isn’t addressed quickly and appropriately. Because buildings and businesses are typically up to code, that could result in a lawsuit or an issue with permits if the plumbing is not fixed in accordance with local standards. That being said, it does not mean you cannot be prepared for the next commercial plumbing issue to arise. They may not happen at the most convenient times, but they don’t have to cause as much panic as they typically do. That is why we are going to go over a few of the most common commercial plumbing issues that many experience. Read on to learn more!
More often than not, the most common issue in commercial buildings, whether a restaurant or office building, are clogged drains. Just based on the sheer number of people that may use your facility’s kitchens or bathroom, clogged drains are bound to occur, and there isn’t a whole lot you can do to stop them. At least when it comes to any residential clogged drains, fewer people are using each drain, and they can be much more proactive at how they keep their appliances, but with commercial plumbing, everything changes. Drain clogs are usually not just an inconvenience but could harm your building and your company’s presentation. Restaurants that have drain clogs can have issues functioning up to safety and health standards because fewer employees might be washing their hands correctly or washing foods if they’re having problems operating drains and faucets.
As mentioned before, these problems are not just inconveniences but could signal to clients or customers that your building is not up to snuff. A faucet leaking in a kitchen, bathroom, or anywhere else could be a signal that you are wasting water. Faucet leaks are quite hard to predict, and there are various reasons for why they may exist. Whether it is just a loose valve or an issue in your main water line, you are going to need a true professional plumber to fix the problem.
Low Water Pressure
The issue is the opposite of a faucet leak since you turn on the sink and do not receive the amount of water you desired. This can be bad for food industry buildings since cleaning produce and washing hands is key for health and safety. Without the right amount of water pressure, the kitchen staff will take much longer to clean up.
