Trust Rooter Solutions, the Honest Plumber, to replace and repair your facility’s pipes.
Nearly everything in a commercial facility relies on a robust and reliable piping system. Is yours in top shape?
Whether it’s supplying water to toilets and commercial washers or transporting wastewater and hazardous substances, your facility’s pipelines are crucial for maintaining your company’s profits and efficiency.
Commercial facilities rely on their piping far more than most homes or businesses; where a leaking pipe at home may be only a minor annoyance, a leaking pipe in your commercial facility can quickly spell disaster—especially when it comes to transporting hazardous liquids or substances.
Common Signs of Faulty Pipes
Don’t wait for disaster to make sure your pipes are in working order. Call Rooter Solutions, the Honest Plumber, if you experience any of these common signs of faulty piping:
- Leaks and Drips: Whether it’s due to corrosion or faulty fittings, drips and leaks in your pipes can cause severe water damage and/or limit water availability throughout your facility. In many cases, leaks and drips are small and difficult to detect, especially in large commercial facilities with thousands of feet of piping.
- Corrosion and Rust: Despite their strength, metal pipes eventually corrode over time, especially in the presence of oxygenated or acidic water. Since corrosion often starts from the inside of the pipe, you may not notice it until it’s too late. Plus, in addition to causing leaks and drips, corrosion and rust can also cause soil and roots to infiltrate underground pipes, reducing water quality and causing further damage in the process.
- Reduced Water Quality: The presence of rust, soil, and other particulates in your water supply could mean that there’s leaking, rust, or corrosion somewhere in your pipeline. Dirty water can stain clothing in commercial washers and disrupt important chemical processes, among other problems!
- Low Water Flow: Leaks, corrosion, and blockages can also reduce water flow throughout your facility, which could be detrimental to certain water-reliant processes throughout your facility. Even if your pipes don’t have any major leaks or blockages, keeping them in top shape is the best way to ensure the maximum efficiency and rate of water flow throughout your facility.
- Old Pipes (pre-1980): Pipes made from cast iron or galvanized steel, especially those installed before 1980, are especially prone to the above problems. Even when there aren’t any immediate issues, any facility with these pipes should conduct a thorough inspection for potential—or existing—problems.
Diagnosing and Repairing Common Pipe Problems
Commercial facilities face a unique challenge when it comes to pipes and plumbing: With potentially thousands of feet—if not miles—of piping, it can be extremely difficult to identify corrosion, leaks, and other problems in their earliest stages. As a result, many facilities fail to notice these issues until it’s too late.
