A Plumber Explains Different Commercial Plumbing Services

Commercial plumbing services
Reading Time: 3 minutes

Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric offers many different commercial plumbing services for all of your plumbing needs. Here, we break down what these services are, and why you should ask a professional for plumbing related assistance.

Water Jetting

A water jet is a piece of machinery that uses highly pressurized water to cut through debris. At these high pressures, a water jet can even cut through metals like aluminum or steel. At Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric, we don’t use water jetting to carve through metal – we use it to clear out your pipes.

Our water jet has specialized attachment nozzles that allow us to direct ordinary tap water into your pipes under varying degrees of pressure. High pressure water jetting has the benefits of:

  • Breaking up debris build-up that causes backlogs and blockages.
  • Cutting through grease and oil.
  • Cutting up roots that have made their way into your pipes.
  • Flushing out your pipe system.

Sewer Line Cleaning

There are a number of different reasons a sewer line might be blocked, all of which can be easily identified by one of our plumbers, often using a camera to inspect the different pipes. Once the blockage has been located, our technicians will inform you as to whether the pipes can be cleaned, or if they need to be repaired or replaced. Costly repairs and replacements can often be prevented by regular sewer line maintenance.

Shut-off Valve Installation

Water shut-off valves are very useful when it comes to any plumbing related emergency or maintenance. There are a handful of different valve types that are applicable for different types of water pipes, so it is important to get a qualified plumber to install or re-install a shut-off valve. Without shut-off valves, it is nearly impossible to turn off the water supply to a specific area of a building, which can be a serious problem during a plumbing disaster.

Backflow Testing, Repair and Certification

Backflow occurs when potable, drinking water is contaminated by dirty, non-potable water. For example, when a toilet is flushed it is imperative that the foul water does not flow back into the tank, thus contaminating the entire system. Many buildings or commercial environments have to comply with specific codes to ensure that drinking water is not contaminated by backflow.

Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric offer backflow testing, to check that a property is not accidently contaminating drinking water. If there are backflow issues, we can easily repair the problem and certify your building as safe.

Water Line Repairs

Water lines supply entire commercial areas with running water, and, if damaged, can have serious effects on the running of businesses. Often, water lines need to be repaired because they have corroded over time. In office blocks or large, commercial or residential buildings, many people are supplied by one or more water lines.

One of the symptoms of a damaged water line is an unusually high water bill, or a water meter that keeps running. Random wet patches or excessive dampness can also signify a damaged line.

Water Softeners and Filtration

When minerals such as calcium and magnesium find their way into water supplies, the water is referred to as ‘hard’. Hard water can negatively impact water lines, as it causes scale build-ups in water pipes and damages appliances. By installing a water softener or filtration system, you can easily solve problems caused by highly mineralized water.

Flood Protection

Flooding can lead to huge amounts of costly property damage, and often requires major plumbing repair. By installing flood protection systems, you can rest assured that your belongings are safe from water damage. Flood protection mechanisms will sense the change in water flow and shut off the main line as soon as a pipe bursts or a leak is detected. Not only does this protect you against flooding, it can also have the added benefit of alerting you to a plumbing problem – if your water turns off, there is a high chance that something has gone wrong.

Regardless of whether you are currently experiencing a plumbing emergency and need immediate assistance, or whether you simply want to prevent any future plumbing related crises, Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric is here to help. Do not hesitate to contact us for any commercial plumbing questions you might have.
