Commercial Prevent building water leaks Old Leaking Pipe

In a commercial setting, the function of a building’s plumbing system can mean the difference between conducting business as usual or shutting down temporarily.

If that business is a restaurant, service company or industrial facility that uses a lot of water and needs reliable drainage, a plumbing problem can sideline your money-making activities for days. Even retail stores and offices can be hampered by issues with water availability, drainage, restroom access or sewage disposal.

Plumbing emergencies can be prevented by keeping the building’s plumbing working properly and reliably by monitoring the system and watching for problems before they develop. Here are some tips to help protect against problems:

Check for leaks: Do a visual inspection of the system to check for leaks.

Test faucets: Turn on faucets to check for leaks around the handles or at the connections to the water supply pipes

Check for corrosion: Look for signs of corrosion and related damage around pipes and pipe fittings.

Test the stability of plumbing fixtures: Make sure faucets, toilets and other plumbing fixtures are solidly attached to the floor, wall or other location.

Check water pressure: Make sure the pressure of the water coming out of your pipes is sufficient for your plumbing needs.

Check all drains for proper function: Water should travel easily down the drain pipes of your commercial building plumbing system.

Test toilets and check flushing mechanisms: Make sure each toilet flushes properly and that all internal components are in good repair

Inspect for visible damage: Carefully look at the plumbing pipes, fixtures, tiling, caulking and other elements to make sure nothing is damaged.
