You can never be too careful when it comes to the plumbing that serves your commercial building. Especially the pipes that are the veins and arteries of the plumbing system. Pipes in a commercial plumbing system undergo a great deal more stress than those in a home and can wear down much faster. If your company is in an older building, it’s possible that the pipes are constructed from outdated material such as galvanized steel that will eventually start to corrode. At times, the only solution for such a problem is to contact commercial plumbing specialists and arrange for a full repiping of the building.
What Is Repiping?
Repiping is the removal of the older pipes and replacing them with newer material. Iron and steel pipes are swapped out for copper, PEX, and CPVC pipes. Repiping usually involves some re-configuring of the pipe layout in order to make it more effective.
Although this sounds like an incredibly disruptive job, it doesn’t have to be. If you hire experienced commercial plumbers, the job will go fast and the experts will see that no mess is left behind.
Does My Business Need Repiping?
If your current building was constructed before 1970, than it’s highly likely that it has older plumbing that is in danger of developing corrosion and leaks. It is a good idea to call on commercial plumbers to examine your pipes (using advanced video inspection equipment) and then give you a diagnosis on the plumbing’s health and the best way to proceed.
Also watch for signs of plumbing that is wearing down in general: these warnings include an increase in water bills, constant repair needs for the pipes, drops in water pressure, or the development of mold in places around the building. Always let professionals inspect your plumbing before you make any decisions.
