As expert Bartlett plumbers, our team at Smith’s Plumbing Services has been around the block. We have seen our fair share of faulty sinks, broken pipes, and toilet conundrums. If you are a business owner, at some point you are going to need a commercial plumber. Our plumbers share the 10 most common plumbing problems businesses face.

  1. Low water pressure – Faucets that trickle and toilets that barely flush could be the indication of a serious plumbing issue, like build up in your pipes or a water line break.
  2. Bad odors – If your bathroom smells like sewer after it has been cleaned, call a plumber to check for sewer back up. Sewer smells will make your employees and customers unhappy.
  3. Unstable water temperature – Your commercial water heater should be regularly serviced. If your water has difficulty remaining a certain temperature, there could be a buildup or a leak in your water heater.
  4. Silent leaks – If your pipes start leaking without you knowing it, you could be wasting tons of money on water bills. Call a plumber if your utility costs suddenly increase—it could be an indication that the plumbing in your walls is leaking.
  5. Failed internal parts – Heavy use of commercial plumbing fixtures can cause internal damage at a much higher rate. Repairs should regularly be made to ensure everything continues to run smoothly.
  6. Broken handles – If a handle is broken, your bathroom goers might not be able to flush anymore. Make sure to regularly check the handles and that everything works as it should.
  7. Running toilets – A constantly running toilet could cause a huge spike in your water bill. Checking your toilets for phantom flushing or running water could save you tons of money in the long run.
  8. Clogs – People tend to be less respectful in commercial bathrooms than they are in their homes. Clogs can regularly happen, creating a giant mess in your bathroom. Look out for customers or employees flushing paper towels or hygienic products down the toilets or into drains.
  9. Leaky faucets – Don’t waste money on running water. Repairing leaky faucets as quickly as possible can help you keep the costs of your water bills down.
