Common Commercial Plumbing Issues


Businesses require plumbing systems that are in tip-top shape not only to make their customers happy but to meet health codes as well. Commercial plumbing systems are much more complicated than residential plumbing systems. The sheer volume of pipes, valves, fixtures, and components that are needed to accommodate the huge amount of water volume and waste doesn’t even compare to what’s needed for a home. 

That’s why you can’t rely on just any plumbing company to tackle your business’s plumbing issues. You don’t want someone who isn’t familiar with complex commercial plumbing systems to try to repair a major plumbing issue and then make it even worse. 

When problems with your commercial properties arise, not getting them fixed immediately and adequately can result in major consequences. Buildings and businesses must meet certain standards and failing to do so can result in a lawsuit or an issue with permits if the plumbing isn’t fixed up to code.

Here are some common commercial plumbing problems that warrant a call to our team for commercial plumbers in Chatham.

Clogged Drains

Clogged drains are a common issue in commercial buildings because of the sheer number of people using the facility’s bathrooms and kitchens. When drain clogs occur, there’s not much you can do to fix them on your own. A clogged drain should be fixed by a professional plumber as soon as possible.

That’s because clogged drains are a huge inconvenience and will hurt the presentation of your commercial space. Restaurants with clogged drains will struggle to meet health and safety codes. Employees might skip washing their hands as often with sinks that aren’t draining properly. If your commercial building is housing, there are legal requirements for tenants regarding sanitation. It’s imperative to call us ASAP for any clogged drains.

Leaks and Damaged Pipes

Some commercial properties have plumbing systems with miles of pipework. In such a vast and complex network of piping, issues are bound to occur. That’s why you need a team with extensive experience dealing with commercial plumbing leaks.

Leaks can occur just about anywhere and can be difficult to detect. Commercial plumbing leaks usually start small but have the potential to develop into a major problem when left unchecked. 

Leaks that aren’t addressed can lead to the development of mold and pipes can even begin to rot. These can lead to the need for mold remediation and the replacement of large sections of piping, something no business owner ever wants to deal with. It’s always best to have small commercial piping issues fixed before they become major headaches.
