Commercial Plumbing Frequently Asked Questions

1. What does “commercial plumbing” mean?

Commercial plumbing is a specialized, highly skilled form of plumbing. Professional commercial plumbers work with wastewater drainage and water supply systems for businesses, factories, public spaces, and more. Since commercial plumbing systems are much more complex than residential ones, specializing in commercial plumbing is much more demanding, and professionals in the industry must perform extensive, sophisticated work, day after day.

In general, commercial plumbers also handle routine maintenance and repair for these complex systems. These professionals have an almost unlimited scope of work, tackling any kind of issue that can arise, from clogs to leaks and everything in between.

Preventative maintenance is a major part of the day-to-day job of a commercial plumber since most business owners want to avoid large-scale problems. Commercial plumbers perform skilled, targeted maintenance to ensure that a business’ plumbing system can run 24/7 and can handle constant use.

Not only is the scale of a commercial plumber’s work immense, but the jobs they do are subject to high scrutiny and high standards. Their work is regulated by stringent rules regarding health and safety. In restaurants and hospitals, for example, water supply and drainage systems must meet strict specifications to avoid health code violations.

While the plumbing systems at homes and businesses may seem the same at their most basic level—consisting of pipes and fixtures—they’re quite different. Commercial plumbing systems are much more complex and sophisticated compared to their residential counterparts, mainly because they handle constant, heavy use. Here are some of the key differences between residential and commercial plumbing:

  1. Size and Durability. Since commercial plumbing systems are used more than residential ones, they often include large fixtures with longer durability ratings. By investing in quality fixtures, and keeping them maintained, business owners can reduce breakdowns due to strain or pressure.
  2. Complexity. Commercial buildings often have several floors and lots of plumbing fixtures, including multiple sinks, toilets, and urinals. Commercial plumbers need a complex understanding of building structures and how components work together.
  3. Probability of Damage. Commercial plumbing is much more prone to damage compared to residential systems. The plumbing system at the average business is large and complex, and any damage it causes can be a costly disaster.
  4. Constant Operation. Commercial plumbing systems need to withstand 24/7 operation. Any repairs or maintenance work needs to be done after hours without disrupting your business. While not all commercial plumbers offer round-the-clock emergency services, Rocketman Plumbing does. We’re here for you 24/7, supporting your business.

A residential plumber can do commercial plumbing, but only if they possess the right combination of education, training, and experience, like the expert technicians at Rocketman Plumbing do. While every commercial plumber passes the same tests as a residential plumber, their day-to-day scope of work is much different. Commercial plumbers need comprehensive knowledge of plumbing codes, including those that relate to residential, commercial, industrial, and factory settings.

While many plumbers can adapt their skills to a variety of plumbing jobs and situations, commercial plumbers perform specialized work on a daily basis. They understand how to diagnose and treat a wide scope of problems and issues that are unique to commercial plumbing systems. Some of the specialized tasks that professional commercial plumbers encounter on a typical day include:

  • Installation and repair of commercial sinks
  • Commercial water heater installation and repair
  • Commercial water leak detection
  • Commercial sewer repair and cleaning
  • Commercial garbage disposal repair

Like residential plumbing, every commercial plumbing project needs to be done right the first time—there’s no room for error. Commercial plumbing standards are generally very strict, and a commercial plumber’s work is often subject to rigorous testing and inspections. Using a wide range of experience and on-the-job knowledge, commercial plumbers provide top-quality services that protect commercial buildings and the people who use them.

Business owners and site managers are duty-bound to create a clean, healthy, and safe environment for customers and employees alike. A big part of that commitment involves keeping your commercial plumbing system in excellent condition.

While a proactive approach to preventative maintenance is the best way to keep your commercial building’s plumbing in great shape, sometimes problems arise with your system from time to time. Here are some of the telltale signs it’s time to call your trusted commercial plumber:

  1. Your drains are clogged. This common commercial plumbing problem is also one of the most problematic. Clogged drains can cause water to back up into your sinks, toilets, and more, leading to flooding that can damage property, as well as cause health hazards. Call an emergency commercial plumber to clear clogs as soon as you see them.
  2. You’re spotting leaks. Detecting leaks can be tricky, and a leaky pipe can cause significant damage to your building. If you suspect you have a leak, call a commercial plumber to determine the source of the leak and make necessary repairs.
  3. Your water pressure is low. Low water pressure could be caused by a leak or blockage in your plumbing system. Hard water could also be to blame, as it restricts the flow of water through pipes. This small inconvenience can turn into a bigger issue quickly, so call your local emergency commercial plumber for immediate diagnosis and treatment.

A commercial plumbing system is composed of several components that can wear down over time. Sometimes, issues like leaks are detected much too late, causing significant damage to businesses, not to mention the downtime required to make repairs. To prevent major problems from disrupting your business—not to mention threatening the health of your employees and customers—it’s wise to get a commercial plumbing inspection every year.

Yearly commercial plumbing inspections can benefit your business in a variety of ways. By making you aware of problems before they turn into more serious ones, a commercial plumbing inspection can:

  • Reduce the risk of sewer line clogs that cause wastewater backup.
  • Discover worn, corroded pipes before they break.
  • Discover toilet leaks before they cause high water bills, as well as damage to your building.
  • Uncover water heater corrosion and ensure proper operation.
  • And much more.

During a typical inspection, your commercial plumber will determine the safety and reliability of your plumbing pipes, completing both a visual walk-through and a test for leaks. We’ll ensure every joint and seam is properly fitted and leak-free. Your commercial plumber will provide you with a comprehensive report of all findings, making it easy for you to plan current and future plumbing maintenance.
