5 Common Commercial Plumbing Problems to Watch Out for

Did you know that leaky faucets waste thousands of gallons of water a year? Or how about the fact that a running toilet can indicate a more serious problem that also wastes hundreds of gallons of water each year? The fact of the matter is, businesses in our area waste a lot of water because they don’t contact a commercial plumber in Covington, KY. Ignorance of your plumbing problems could cost you money if you’re not careful.

That’s why we’d like to give you a little reminder! If any of these following problems sound familiar, your budget would like you to contact a plumber and get these checked out. These problems compound and get worse the longer they go without attention. Running a “tight ship” in your commercial enterprise includes trimming the fat that might be leaking through your faucets and drains.

Stay Vigilant for These 5 Problems

These issues can range from mildly obnoxious to your customers and employees, to extremely detrimental and costly. As we mentioned earlier, a leaky faucet can end up costing hundreds of dollars at the end of the year, which is entirely avoidable with great plumbing service. So, let’s get into these problems and if you recognize any of them, make sure to contact your local plumber.

  • Dripping Faucets. If you notice one or even multiple faucet leaks, get them checked out by a professional as soon as possible to avoid wasting water.
  • Drain Clogs. A clogged drain in a restroom or kitchen can be annoying and unsanitary. People tend to take better care of their home bathroom drains than they do commercial drains, so these drains might need more TLC than normal.
  • Running Toilets. Running toilets, or toilets that are always constantly flushing water down the drain, can either be a simple solution that will stop water from being wasted—or is a sign that there’s something much more serious going on with your toilet.
  • Water Temperature Problems. If you can’t seem to get the water hot enough for your specific workplace needs, that’s not just an inconvenience, but a symptom of a larger issue with your water heater.
  • Low Water Pressure. While it might not seem like a problem at first, low water pressure can be a sign that there are some issues with your plumbing. Low water pressure could be a clue that there’s a leak or burst pipe somewhere in your plumbing that’s decreasing the water pressure. Many business owners believe that some buildings will just have low water pressure automatically, but this is not always the case and your plumbing system could be trying to tell you something!

Regardless of whether you notice one or several of these problems in your commercial plumbing system, a professional plumber is the remedy. Don’t try to diagnose plumbing problems yourself. Instead, stick with a team that has the expertise and equipment necessary to keep your drains, faucets, toilets, and the rest of your plumbing in tip-top shape.
