Some of the Most Prevalent Commercial Plumbing Problems

Some of the Most Prevalent Commercial Plumbing Problems

Commercial bathrooms in warehouses, offices, and retail spots experience different plumbing problems than your average residential bathroom.

While every commercial bathroom could face a lot of the same plumbing problems, commercial bathrooms in warehouses, offices, and retail spots experience different plumbing problems than your average residential bathroom. As a business owner, your job is to ensure that the restroom is fully functional for both customers and employees. If you face any of the next common commercial plumbing problems in your business bathroom, give B&D Plumbing a call for help!

Leaky Faucets in Your Commercial Bathroom

Faucet leaks in bathrooms around your business property can waste thousands of gallons each year, needlessly increasing water bills during the process. Water damage from a leaking faucet is another issue for you to consider. If the pipe below the sink starts to leak, water can pool onto the floor, and if left untreated, cause some serious structural damage as time passes.

Clogged Drains in Your Commercial Bathroom

People tend to be a lot less respectful of commercial plumbing sinks than those in their own houses. Bits of paper towels, dirt, and food could clog a commercial sink drain and cause the water to drain much slower than usual. This paints an unprofessional picture of your entire business, which can harm the way all of your customers perceive you.

Clogged Toilets 

Commercial toilets are a lot more difficult to clog than residential toilets, but it is not unheard of. Directly plunging the toilet might be enough to clear your drain, but if not, a plumbing snake could be used to cut through the clog. Watch out for specific toilets that clog more often, as this can be a sign of root intrusion or a similar issue.

Toilets Always Running

Whether a minor leak causes a “phantom flush” or the toilet is constantly running, the issue requires much greater attention from a plumber. Failing to repair the problem could result in higher water bills and a greater likelihood for clogged toilets in your commercial plumbing system.

Smelly Sewers

The scent of waste lingering around your sewer drains undoubtedly will not attract any customers or make your employees content. If you notice these smells coming from any floor drains, call in a professional plumber because you could have a sewer backup.

Low Water Pressure Levels

From toilets that hardly ever flush to faucets that barely trickle, lower water pressure is an issue for your commercial plumbing system. While a smaller problem like sediment buildup on faucet aerators and pipes is very common, you can also have a break in your main water line, which will demand immediate attention.
