Common Commercial Plumbing Problems

Broken or Burst Pipes

Burst pipes are a hazardous and expensive plumbing issue. Fast-flowing water from a major leak can reduce water pressure and lead to water damage. There are several causes of a burst pipe, including freezing temperature, underground tree roots, and the condition of the pipe. Ignoring a burst pipe can affect the overall plumbing system and lead to mold infestation, which can be dangerous for your property.

Clogged Toilets

Clogged toilets are one of the most common commercial plumbing problems. The impact of a blocked toilet can be extreme for a commercial establishment.

Clogged Drains

You can clog your drains if you flush items such as diapers, paper towels, plastic bags, or feminine hygiene products. When these materials are discarded incorrectly, they end up clogging the plumbing system of your commercial establishment.

Sewer Smell

Sewer odor is one of the most dangerous commercial plumbing problems. It is a mixture of organic gases containing compounds like hydrogen, nitrogen, methane, carbon dioxide, ammonia, and hydrogen sulfide.

Backed-Up Sewer System

A backed-up or failed sewer system isn’t only the worst commercial plumbing problem but a nightmare for management. If not fixed, it can lead to problems like soggy lawns, rodent and insect infestation, cracks in the foundation walls, and mildew and mold.
