How To Maintain Your Plumbing
Large-scale commercial plumbing issues should always be handled by a professional, but there are plenty of simple techniques and procedures you can use to perform basic preventive maintenance. Consider the following tips for ensuring your business’ plumbing system is functioning to its full capacity:
- Kitchen Sink: Don’t rinse fats or cooking oils down your kitchen sink. Liquid fats can solidify in the cold pipes and create clogs.
- Winter Pipe Care: To prevent damage from frozen pipes, insulate any pipes in unheated or exterior walls. Let water drip or trickle from faucets during extremely cold weather and open cabinet doors to help circulate warm air.
- Plumbing Fixtures: Repair dripping faucets and leaking toilets. A faucet dripping at a rate of one drop per second wastes almost 2,800 gallons of water a year. A leaky toilet can waste over 73,000 gallons of water a year!
- Toilet: Make sure no one flushes trash items in the toilets, such as feminine hygiene products, facial tissues, wet wipes, or paper towels, as they do not dissolve and can clog the lines. Make sure to keep a wastepaper basket in each bathroom and toss these items away.
- Drain Inspection: Liquids going down the drain should swirl at a rapid pace. When letting water out, it should not drain slowly, gurgle, or bubble.
- Water Shut Off Valve: In an emergency situation, this valve will shut off the water to your entire home or business. Make sure you close and open your shut off valve periodically to ensure it’s not stuck in the “open” position.
