Choosing the Right Plumber
While there are a number of issues that are common for both residential plumbing and commercial plumbing, there can be some differences in how the problem are handled on a commercial plumbing system. For this reason, when calling a plumber, you’ll want to assure that the technician in question is familiar with and experienced in the type of plumbing repairs your situation requires.
For example, while it is true that a toilet can break or spring a leak in a single family residence, an office building, or an apartment complex, the way pipes are configured and connected may be completely different, leading to a need for a whole different area of expertise for the plumber. Because there is a call for knowledge in all circumstances, many plumbers make it their business to be versed in all areas of plumbing repair and installation, available to meet the needs of both residential and commercial customers. When you are looking for a San Diego CA plumber, be sure to ask about experience in all facets of plumbing work.
Another concern with commercial plumbing versus residential plumbing is the possible impact. While a family in a home may experience difficulty and interruption of their lives, as well as damage to the home, commercial properties have a higher risk factor. As opposed to a few feet of damaged carpet caused by a plumbing leak in a home, commercial and industrial plumbing leaks can lead to damaged or ruined equipment, loss of productivity, and even violation of building codes. Also, it impacts a much larger group of people. In an office environment, a broken toilet can be much more of a hassle than in a single family home.
Because of the unique nature of commercial plumbing (including dedicated plumbing products for specific industries, such as a restaurant), the San Diego plumbing company you choose should be one with knowledge in all areas of plumbing, both commercial and residential. The greater the knowledge base of a plumber, the more successful you will be in having your repairs made satisfactorily.
