Common Commercial Plumbing Problems in Ontario California
Ontario California takes its name from the Ontario Model Colony development established in 1882 by the Canadian engineer George Chaffey and his two brothers William Chaffey and Charles Chaffey. They named the small settlement after their home province of Ontario, Canada. Nowadays the city of Ontario, California and the surrounding Inland Empire region is a bustling hub of commercial activity.
The plumbers connection is a full service commercial plumbing contractor serving the entire Inland Empire area including Ontario. In this article we’re going to explain some of the most common issues we see with commercial plumbing systems in the Ontario California area.
When a building or facilities owner thinks of plumbing problems, they immediately start to get scared. Not only can they be expensive to fix, but they create health hazards and other problems that can cost your business money.
In some cases the problem is small and can be fixed, inexpensively in other cases your plumbing system might require a complete inspection and possible extensive repair. With plumbing it’s important not too let any problem progress so far that becomes a much bigger issue. In fact, many of the most disastrous plumbing problems we see that cause extensive water damage were often caused by a tiny problem that if caught early, could have prevented the entire ordeal.
Here Are The Most Common Commercial Plumbing Problems We Solve
#1. Clogged Toilets and Drains. A nightmare for your staff, embarrassing for your business and a disgusting memory for customers who happened to be affected by the issue. If and when your commercial facility has a clogged drain or toilet the first thing you should do is find the water shut off valve and turn it off. Stop the flow of water as quick as you can. With commercial facilities though, it’s not usually the toilet that gets clogged first… It’s usually kitchen sinks, especially in restaurants, hotels and other facilities with busy kitchens that might be pouring a lot of grease, or other like substances down the drain.
The plumbers connection can solve the most difficult clogged drain and toilet problems. In the case of a clogged toilet that cannot be fixed with a plunger we can use our sewer snake to feed down the line and remove the blockage. For drains, we utilize our camera inspection system so we can look deep inside your plumbing lines to find the source of the blockage.
Depending on how far down and what it is will determine our next repair. For commercial buildings with a clogged drain a hydrojet cleaning is generally the best method of repair.
#2. Leaky Faucets and Fixtures. When we think of a leaky faucet in our homes we know the constant drip, drip, drip is annoying and wasting water. It’s an annoyance but something that we know eventually needs to be fixed. When a commercial building has leaky faucets and fixtures the problem can be measured in dollars, not cents. It’s not uncommon for those tiny drips and slow leaks to actually be wasting hundreds if not thousands of gallons of water every year. When you multiply that by a dozen or more different faucets and taps, perhaps even dozens of them it can become a very expensive problem.
Another common issue with these unseen sometimes ignored plumbing leaks is that the area surrounding the leak becomes moisture laden and will be a breeding ground for mold and mildew which will become a very expensive and extensive problem to fix that goes far beyond the scope of a plumber.
