Is it Time to Call Your Commercial Plumber?

Commercial Plumber To The Rescue

If you ignore the maintenance of any portion of a commercial building, things are going to go awry eventually. This is especially the case with commercial plumbing. Luckily, there are plenty of signs that will point you toward the need for a commercial plumber. When you see any of these things within the building, it is important to get help sooner rather than later to avoid damage and further issues.

1) Increased Water Bills

Water bills fluctuate in any commercial building, but once you have seen enough water bills for a building, you can figure out the average cost and usage per month. If the water bill increases greatly with no particular reason behind it (like a bunch of new tenants), then there is probably a leak somewhere in the system. Commercial plumbers can help you find the leak and fix it quickly so you can start to save money on your water bill right away.

2) A Running Water Sound

Have you or someone in the building reported the sound of running water? That might be normal when someone flushes a toilet or runs the sink. But if there is a water sound coming through the walls without water actively running or being used, there is a problem somewhere that needs to get resolved before more natural resources are wasted.

3) Water Leaks You Can See

Fixtures leak on occasion and if you can see a sink dripping, water pooling around a toilet, or water spots on the walls or ceiling, that is a clear indication that there is something leaking in or around your building. The most concerning leaks are ones where you can see evidence of water on the walls or ceiling as those can be harder to fix. Plus, they can even indicate something like a burst pipe. If a pipe has burst, water pressure for the rest of the building may be affected. Either way, you need the water leak fixed quickly before it gets worse, and can cause further damage

4) Slow Drains

Slow drains are annoying, but they can also become a big problem if they completely clog up and cause water to back up into the building. The first time you notice water taking a long time to drain away, get a plumber on site to fix the clog and clear away debris before things get worse and damage occurs. 

5) Clogged Toilets

Clogged toilets happen every once in a while and perhaps you can get things cleared up with a plunger yourself. But it if happens over and over again, there’s an issue deeper down than a plunger can reach. Have a plumber take a look and let them fix the issue for good.
