People often underestimate the importance of plumbing in their commercial business. Proper plumbing is important to keep items in your business clean and offer appropriate guest and employee comforts. Keeping your plumbing maintained by a professional is important, however, there are several things you can do to keep your plumbing running smoothly.
- Keep drains clear - If the drainage speed in your sinks or tubs is slow, it is crucial to act before they get worse. Pouring a simple mixture of hot water and vinegar to pour down the drain every few months can help to dislodge unwanted debris and keep them clear.
- Water pressure – Poor water pressure can mean bad reviews if your business welcomes guests overnight. Having trouble rinsing soap from hair can make bathing a chore.
- Use a gauge to test the pressure in your water circulation system and if it low, consider, consider investing in a shower head to help avoid future issues.
- Plug us the leaks - Ignoring a leaking water tap or showerhead will not make the situation any better. If you continue to avoid the situation the issues will likely get worse over time. In addition to adding up to larger water bills, it can also cause water damage to surfaces under sinks and other areas. While a skilled do-it-yourselfer can probably tackle a leaking faucet, as a busy business owner, this might be a job that is better left to the professionals.
- Commercial quality toilets – Having toilets and other plumbing fixtures that can withstand the high usage of a commercial setting is crucial to ensuring an adequate lifespan. If you are updating your commercial plumbing be sure the fixtures you choose are able to hold up to these heavy demands.
- Flush appropriately – The only item that should be flushed down your toilets is waste products and toilet paper. Additional matter can cause unwanted clogs leaving your business without adequate facilities. Be sure that bathroom patrons know what should and should not be flushed.
- Inspect other appliances – Sometimes plumbing leaks are caused by water using appliances and not plumbing fixtures. If you use a washing machine or refrigerator in your business, make sure that these are not the culprits.
