Businesses across the United States have pulled down their shutters ever since the government announced orders to shelter in place to minimize the risk of exposure to the coronavirus. If you’ve also shut down your restaurant, it’s you being a responsible citizen who cares about the lives of their employees and customers.
However, while your business is shut, here are some things you need to do to make sure your plumbing stays in good shape, and your monthly bills stay low.
Turn Off Your Main Water Valve
Since no one would be using the toilet or kitchen in your restaurant, it’s good to shut off the main water supply to prevent any water damage in your restaurant. The main water valve is typically located outside the building or the basement, near the main water meter.
Call your plumber if you cannot find the main water valve on your own or don’t know how to turn it off. Over time, the main water valves also tend to get stuck because of rust. If this is the case, don’t attempt to force or lubricate it—call your plumber right away.
Make Sure Your Bathroom Is in Good Shape
When you resume your restaurant’s operations after the coronavirus has subsided, you don’t want to be worrying about your backing-up or leaking toilet. So, before you lock your restaurant’s doors, make sure the toilet, bathroom sinks, faucets, and other plumbing fixtures are working fine. If any of the faucets or toilets seem to leak, get them repaired by a professional plumber immediately.
Upgrade Kitchen Plumbing
For restaurants, kitchens are the most critical spaces where the operations never stop. Orders keep coming, and cooks keep preparing the meals for customers. It may be the first time in months or even years when your kitchen is still, and you can use it to upgrade your kitchen plumbing. Hire a plumbing service that offers repair and installation services for garbage disposals, water dispensers, water purifiers, and other plumbing fixtures in your kitchen.
