Five Tips to Prevent Emergency Issues with Commercial Plumbing In Thornton

  1. Know the basic layout of your plumbing system.

Do you have a map or chart of your property, with the pipes and other critical systems plotted out?  If not, it’s a good idea to have one.  It’ll help you stay informed about your plumbing, as well as assisting your plumbers should you ever need to call for help.

  1. Always watch out for leaks.

Everyone on staff should be watching out for leaks.  This includes leaks from visible pipes, as well as issues such as unexplained wet spots on or near walls where pipes are hidden.  (That’s also another reason to know the layout of your pipes.)  Remember, a leaky pipe isn’t just wasted money; that’s probably doing actual damage to your property since that water is going somewhere it shouldn’t be.

  1. Look for corrosion.

Make sure staff -particularly any cleaning crew- know the telltale signs of corrosion on your pipes.  It’s green on copper pipes, and yellow/orange on steel pipes.  Once a pipe is corroded, there’s no telling when it might break.  It’s always better to have them replaced before that happens.

  1. Occasionally test the anchoring of your fixtures.

As items such as toilets and sinks get used, the attachment points may start to weaken.  If they ever shift too much, it can cause serious leaks or clogs.  A bit of gentle pressure on these fixtures will tell you or your staff whether they’re still firmly attached.

  1. Always fix minor issuesbeforethey become emergencies.

The majority of our calls for emergency plumbing in Thornton are for issues which could have been fixed earlier, but either they weren’t detected or the property owners didn’t act fast enough.  This just means they paid extra for plumbing and repairs.
