Upgrade commercial plumbing

Every business owner knows that downtime in your business means money isn’t being made. Commercial plumbing is an integral part of any business. Without it, nothing would work! There would be no water for the sinks, toilets, dishwashers, and other equipment that require water to operate. Upgrading your plumbing can save you time and money in the long run. If you are experiencing any of the following with your commercial plumbing and repairs, it might be time for an upgrade.

Leaky Pipes

Depending on the leak, you might be able to have it repaired. If the pipe is constantly leaking, it’s time to upgrade and get new pipes. Having a leak somewhere in your plumbing not only wastes water, but it can also cause damage to your property, which will end up costing you more than it would to replace a few pipes.

Low Water Pressure

If you have ever taken a shower and the water pressure was low, you know how frustrating it can be.  Now imagine that happening in your business. If you don’t have good water pressure, you won’t be able to get things done in a timely manner. For example, if you own a hair salon or car wash, you rely on the water pressure to be strong so you can finish the job quicker. Low water pressure can also be an indication of bigger problems such as leaks, broken pipes, or a blockage in your plumbing. If repairs don’t fix the problem, you will need to replace whatever is damaged.

Bad Smells

If your plumbing system is producing bad smells, it could be a sign of a bigger problem like leaks, blockages, or damaged pipes. Commercial plumbing systems are designed to handle large amounts of water and waste. If you are noticing bad smells, it is time to have your plumbing system checked out by a professional.

Outdated Plumbing

If your plumbing is more than 20 years old, it is likely time to upgrade. While some businesses can get away with having older plumbing, it is usually best to upgrade when possible. Newer plumbing is more efficient and can save you money in the long run.

Discolored Water

If you notice that your water is discolored, it could be a sign of corrosion inside your pipes. Brown or yellow water is common when pipes are decaying. It is best to have a professional take a look at your plumbing system to determine the cause of the discoloration and make repairs or replacements as needed.
