3 Things to Know About Commercial Plumbing
Residential plumbing may seem simple enough for the do-it-yourselfer, but commercial plumbing is a whole different animal. Piping systems are much more complex and therefore require professional help in most cases. But how do you know when to need help in the first place, and what should you look out for? Here are a few ideas to get started.
1. Pipe Leak Tests do Wonders
A very common plumbing problem commercial businesses run into is pipe leaks, and the longer they continue the more problems they create. Periodic leak testing, however, saves a lot of headaches. And surprise: it’s cheaper in the long run.
2. How Hot is the Water?
Checking the consistency of your water temperature is very important, especially if your business requires it to be compliant for certain operations like food production. If your water heater systems are having trouble, have a professional replace the thermostat or improve the insulation. If it’s a problem that’s more complex, that’s when having a good commercial plumber really shines. Excellent skills and training are really the only things that are valuable in commercial water heater repairs. The more dependable the plumber is, the better!
3. Pick the Right Plumber for the Job
Because commercial plumbing systems are so vast and elaborate, it’s important to pick a plumber that is well versed in the subtype for the part that needs mending. (Such as gas stations, restaurants, medical facilities, and so on.) Examine their experience and background in the specific area. Don’t forget to check their licensing, too!
