If you’re responsible for the maintenance of a commercial building, you want to be confident that all systems are running well. Dealing with leaks and damage can mean expensive repairs and possibly a need to stop work while repairs are being made. Getting upgrades to your commercial plumbing system may help you avoid such instances. Look for these signs that indicate you may need commercial plumbing upgrades:
- Water discoloration – If your water normally runs clear, and is now brown or dark, you may have corroded pipes. Corroded pipes leave bits of rust in your water and can lead to blockages or bursting pipes. Have a plumber come and check them out early on to avoid extensive damage and costly repairs.
- Reduced water pressure – A sudden change in water pressure could mean you have a broken pipe or a complete blockage. A gradual change in water pressure may not need immediate attention but is an indication that your plumbing system may need a repair or commercial plumbing upgrades.
- Water Stains – Yellowish-brown stains on your ceiling or along the edge of your walls are a likely sign that you have a leak somewhere that, if left unattended, can lead to big problems. Seeking a plumber’s help early on would be in your best interest.
- Strange sounds and smells – Gurgling noises coming from a sink, dishwasher, or laundry facility in your commercial building can mean you have backup issues. Foul odors are also a sign of backup that should be addressed quickly.
