Sarasota, Florida business owners can never be too vigilant when it comes to commercial plumbing. Commercial plumbing systems experience more stress than residential systems, causing them to need repair or possibly replacement. If your company is located in an older building, it’s crucial that you remain on the lookout for these signs that you need a commercial plumbing repipe.
Discolored water is generally caused by a rusty water heater tank, which is an easy fix. If you’ve ruled out that cause, however, your commercial plumbing system could be corroding from the inside out. When this occurs, the only solution is to invest in a full plumbing repipe.
Tiny leaks may be difficult to spot, but they can indicate major problems in your commercial plumbing system. All of the pipes throughout a building age at the same rate, meaning that they’re all in the same condition. When one starts to leak, it’s a good bet that the entire system needs to be replaced.
Older buildings that haven’t yet been renovated are often plagued by lead pipes, which are normally dark gray or black in color. Drinking water from lead pipes can cause serious health hazards, especially in children, so get that system repiped as soon as possible.
Most business owners never discover that a building’s pipes are deteriorating until a plumbing inspection. Hearing that you have crumbling pipes can be a shock, but all pipes have a set life span and won’t last forever. Knowing your commercial plumbing system’s age is beneficial, but it’s even more important to have the plumbing regularly inspected so you can invest in a repipe when necessary.
