Warning Signs That You May Need Commercial Re-Piping

No matter what type of business you run, your commercial building will rely on plumbing to some extent. It could be the bathrooms for an office building, or it could be a vital part of day-to-day operations such as in a food service establishment.

However your company makes use of its plumbing, a time may come when it will need to have new piping replace the old ones. Pipes are durable, but they will not last forever… especially if they are made from older materials. Commercial plumbers can arrange to re-pipe part or all of your building to ensure that your plumbing will work its best for customer and clients and require few repairs in the future.

Reasons to have commercial re-piping

  • Water discoloration: If you notice that the water coming from faucets and other taps in the building is developing a rusty-red discoloration, the problem may come from corrosion in the pipes. (It may also be a result of contamination in the water supply, so ask your plumbers to look into all possibilities.)
  • Drop in water pressure: When water pressure starts to decline all across the building, it can mean extensive leaking has started throughout the plumbing system. In these cases, re-piping parts of the building is often the best way to solve the issue in the long run.
  • Building age: How old is your commercial building? If it was built pre-1970, then there’s a chance that its pipes are made of outdated material such as galvanized steel, or even cast iron. These materials are prone to corrosion over time, usually starting to wear down after 50 years of service. Re-piping the whole building with copper and various plastic pipes will head off major plumbing issues.
  • Poor drainage: If drain clogs are a regular issue for your company, replacing the drain or sewer pipes is something to consider.
