Experienced Victoria Plumbers for Common Commercial Plumbing Problems
4 Common Commercial Plumbing Problems
If you run a business on Vancouver Island you’re likely used to things being a bit damp, for oh, say six months of the year or so. But when you arrive at work on Monday morning and you’re confronted with flooding or water damage caused by a plumbing mishap, that’s an entirely different kind of soggy mess. Scrambling through your contacts for plumbers in Victoria BC is the last thing you need. That’s why you should always have Archie Johnstone Plumbing & Heating’s number on hand. We’re here to help with all your commercial plumbing needs in Victoria, Nanaimo, and elsewhere on the Island. Here are four of the most common plumbing problems local businesses like yours face.
1. Clogged toilets and drains
A clogged toilet is often remedied with a plunger, but if there are repeated occurrences of a toilet overflowing, there could be a deeper problem that needs to be addressed. A toilet that consistently clogs could lead to water damage and depending on the nature of your business—restaurants and hotels come to mind—may potentially scare customers away. A clogged drain is just as problematic, and oftentimes more difficult to resolve. Grease build-up is often the culprit and may be temporarily resolved by using a solution of baking soda and vinegar.
2. Leaky fixtures and faucets
These types of leaks are most often caused by worn-out gaskets, washers and O-rings. Leave drips and dribbles unattended for too long and you could find the surrounding areas get destroyed and that structural damages ensue.
3. Water temperature problems
If water is coming out of the tap scorching hot or freezing cold, chances are that your water heater needs to be adjusted. This is a job best attended to by a plumber or plumbing contractor. In Victoria BC, and elsewhere on the Island, Archie Johnstone Plumbing & Heating are experts at quickly and efficiently resolving water temperature issues.
4. Silent leaks
A toilet or pipe can leak silently for days and weeks on end without you ever knowing. Then your water bill comes in and ouch—you’re left wondering what happened. It’s only then that you or a plumber discovers the leak.
