A major plumbing issue is not something you want to experience at your business. At best it could be disruptive, and at worst, it could mean closing your doors for several hours or even longer. While not all plumbing emergencies are preventable, there are sometimes symptoms that can alert you to a problem brewing. Watch for these signs that you should call a commercial plumber sooner rather than later.
- Inflated Water Bill – If your water bill is getting larger each month and there hasn’t been a rate increase or a change in how you conduct business, there could be a leak in the system. Even a small leak can create an inflated water bill, yet be small enough that it isn’t detected by anyone.
- Humidity or Moisture Issues – A leak that goes undetected can also cause humidity and moisture issues. If you are finding your HVAC system is working harder than usual and still not making your building comfortable, it could be because of water damage. A pinhole leak can take months to cause significant water damage, but in the meantime, it is producing the perfect environment for mold and humidity.
- Chronic Slow Drains or Frequent Backups – If your drains are not operating as they should, it could be a sign of a more serious problem than just a standard clog. There could be waste buildup in the pipes or even a damaged section of pipe. A commercial plumber will be able to diagnose the problem and resolve it before you end up with a major backup.
- Lack of Water Pressure – Several causes can be involved if you notice a lack of water pressure, including a leak or buildup in the pipes.
