As a business owner, it is understandable if you want to do everything possible to keep your bottom line at its max, which may include trying to avoid calling in the pros when something goes wrong, like an issue with the plumbing system. However, not calling in the experts can oftentimes lead to even bigger (and more expensive) problems. If you experience any of these plumbing issues at your business then it is time to call in a qualified commercial plumber.
Increasing water bill
If your water bill seems to be going up but the amount of water you believe your using isn't, then there is a good chance that there is a leak somewhere in the system. A commercial plumber will be able to identify the location of the leak and get it repaired in a fast and timely manner, saving you loads of cash on your monthly bills.
Sound of running water
Have you noticed a soft sound of water flowing behind the walls? Has an employee of your complained river moving through the ceiling? If there are no fixtures on but water can be heard flowing there is some sort of problem that needs to be resolved. This is a huge waste of natural resources.
Visible water leak
There are a few ways to tell if water is leaking, the most concerning is if you can spot wet spots in your floors, walls, or the ceiling. This is generally a clear indication of a burst pipe that needs to be replaced. This issue will often be accompanied by a lack of water pressure in sink faucets and other water outlets.
Slow drains can be a cause of reduced productivity depending on your line of work, however, it is a general nuisance no matter what you do. If your drains are taking their sweet time to empty call a professional commercial plumber to get them cleared of any debris that is clogging them up.
No employee should have to be subject to unclogging a toilet, but it does happen from time to time. However, if it becomes a constant issue in one particular restroom than the toilet may be at fault. Let a plumber take a peek at the fixture to make sure that everything is operating properly. If not, they can install a new toilet that will save your team from embarrassment.
