5 Signs That You Need to Call a Commercial Plumber

Helping You Know When You Should Contact the Professionals

Having trouble with your commercial plumbing system? Make sure you get in touch with a professional so that such issues can be handled properly and promptly. Here are 5 signs that you need to call a commercial plumber.

  1. Low water pressure. As you probably already know, your water supply system must remain pressurized in order to function as it should. While your wastewater system relies on gravity alone, your water supply must be kept at a certain pressure, not only to be able to send water up to the second floor, but also to prevent backflow. Low water pressure is often a sign that you have a hidden leak occurring somewhere, either in the building itself or underground. It could also mean that you would benefit from a booster pump or well tank.
  2. Leaky pipes are perhaps the most common plumbing problem. If you find that your piping has a leak that needs to be fixed, then it’s important that you take action as soon as possible. Certain leaks are fairly obvious, as when you find a puddle of water near a drainpipe or appliance, but others may make themselves known by low water pressure or high utility bills. Stay alert to leaks, and you can save yourself trouble in the long run.
  3. Clogged pipes are another unfortunate consequence of a heavily used drain and sewer system. The best way to avoid clogs is by having your system professionally maintained, which means both drain and sewer cleaning. But sometimes, clogs are inevitable. While you may be tempted by the harsh chemicals you can buy at any hardware store, remember that the use of such chemicals can result in pipe damage over time.
  4. Inadequate hot water. If you find that your commercial space lacks sufficient hot water, then you should call on a commercial plumber. There are numerous potential causes for this issue, including an accumulation of sediment in the water heater itself as well as a leak in your system. It may even be time to replace your water heater.
  5. High utility or energy bill. We’re sure you watch your expenses like a hawk, but if you notice that you have a surprisingly high energy or utility bill, then it could be your water heater’s inefficient operation or a hidden leak somewhere.
