Why Building Owners Should Only Work With Plumbers That Have Commercial Experience


If you're in charge of a building, plumbing is something you'll be tackling pretty regularly. It could be leaky pipes or maybe pipe structures that weren't installed right when the building was first put together. When these issues happen, you will want to consider help from a commercial plumber. Here are a couple of reasons why.

More Familiar with Building's Layout

There are major differences between commercial properties and residential homes. The former have way more plumbing systems and fixture types, and as such, you need to make sure that only commercial plumbers are brought in to fix plumbing issues.

Rather than having to inspect for hours and hours to figure out what's wrong, they'll already know which areas to closely analyze because they've worked on similar properties in the past. Then your inspection and repair solution will be pretty quick, keeping damage and further plumbing complications controlled.

Can Support Inspection Frequency

In addition to having plumbing issues repaired by commercial plumbers, you'll also want to work with these professionals when having plumbing systems inspected. They can support the high inspection frequency better than a residential plumber, who may have limited resources and thus can only inspect a couple of times a month. 

Whereas when you work with a commercial plumber, they're used to inspecting a lot of plumbing components in large buildings on a regular basis. They won't be intimated by the number of toilets and sinks that need a thorough inspection. 

Know Commercial Plumbing Codes

Any type of commercial plumbing problem has to be repaired according to code. Commercial buildings have different plumbing codes compared to homes, which is why you want to make sure you find a plumber with commercial building experience.

Then you won't have to question their repair techniques or materials. Whatever they use to fix your commercial plumbing fixtures, the plumber will comply with commercial plumbing codes all the way through. They don't have to look up these codes either like a residential plumber might have to do. They already have them down, and subsequently can get started working right away.

Buildings like offices and banks will have problems with plumbing. If you have said property and are looking for a plumber to help you out in these binds, verify their commercial plumbing experience. This simple step will help in a lot of ways, such as getting better repairs and having them completed a lot faster.

A New Kind of Piping Makes DIY Plumbing Easier

My homes have always had either copper or PVC plumbing pipes. But when my plumbing system needed an overhaul last spring, I wanted a piping system for my home that I could work on myself when needed. There were a lot of good reasons to choose PEX piping, but my favorite thing about the PEX piping is that it's easy to work with, even if you're a beginner like me. Now I can make small repairs myself instead of calling the plumber every time I have a minor leak or other small problem. I still call the plumber for the big stuff, but it's more affordable now that I can take care of small issues myself. I started this blog to help others learn how they, too, can do DIY plumbing repairs at home.
