Commercial Plumbing Services
Commercial plumbing covers a lot of territory from highrise boilers and industrial piping to public washrooms and warehousing needs. We have a decades-long track record of service and maintenance for many local business concerns and will be happy to provide references on request if you are considering changing contractors or have a new facility in need of maintenance. Take a moment and read through this short list of descriptions.
Toilets in a commercial setting frequently require an infrared beam flush valve, which may be manually or automatically activated. Toilets in stalls are frequently wall hung using a closet carrier installed behind the wall.
Also, wall hung lavatories hung on lavatory chair carriers are common in commercial bathrooms, as are battery or solar operated automatic faucets. And, finally, there are the urinals that are not normally found in residential bathrooms.
As opposed to residential water heaters, most industrial, commercial and apartment complexes use a commercial boiler and a storage tank. In many municipalities, water pressure is an issue for multi-story buildings, requiring a water booster or house pump. Booster pumps are occasionally used in houses but are not nearly as complex or large as those used in commercial applications.
Other kinds of equipment rarely seen in residential applications include:
- Roof drains
- Commercial floor drains
- Trench drains
- Thermostatic mixing valves
- RPZ valves
- Mechanical joint fittings
- Series boiler installations
Simply put, some residential plumbers are neither familiar with nor trained to service many of these types of equipment and would not have the specialized tools and parts necessary.
Commercial and industrial plumbing is different from residential and requires different skills, tools and parts. Our team has that training, in addition to the experience necessary to carry out commercial plumbing maintenance and repairs.
