Commercial businesses struggle to keep functioning smoothly so that they’re able to meet deadlines and deliver projects. For that, employers need to ensure that their employees are assisted in every way possible.
However, the slightest plumbing problem can make the work conditions extremely unfavorable.
It always helps to stay up to date with potential plumbing problems that might occur so that you can take proactive measures. Here are some common plumbing issues that might arise.
Since foot traffic is greatest in commercial buildings, even one dysfunctional toilet is enough to hamper work progress.
A most common cause of clogged toilets is leftover toilet paper dumped in the drain instead of the dustbin. Once your plumber fixes the problem, it’s better to inform your work team about some rules such as ‘not to flush objects down the drain’.
This is also a bigger problem in commercial spaces than residential homes. Similar to the previous issue, this too happens when people leave large objects lying on the floor or near the drain. They include paper towels, hair, sanitary napkins or other waste material.
Not to mention, this problem can jeopardize your business reputation as well. You don’t want this to become a stain on your image in the industry.
If you’re hearing water trickling somewhere, it could either be a leaky faucet or a running toilet. If it’s not the former, you know what to suspect.
There can be many reasons why your toilet is running. You can inspect by taking the lid off of the toilet tank. The water may be leaking as a result of the fill valve malfunctioning and not turning off. This causes water to leak past the flapper. However, it’s better to let a professional see to the problem.
Toilet handles can break easily and cause immense inconvenience because you can’t flush the toilet after use.
This is not only an eyesore but also a health risk because of the unhygienic waste left undrained. It’s better to have motion-sensitive toilet seats because they’re more hygienic and low-maintenance.
As the name suggests, this is a silent menace that only shows face when it’s too late and the damage is already done.
If you’re noticing uncommon spikes in your water bill, that’s a sign of a silent leak.
