Hospitals’ unique plumbing system challenges require regular inspections and maintenance to ensure the consistent operation that could mean life or death to patients.

The Hospital Plumber that Keeps Systems Up-to-Date
Water Conservation Plumbing Upgrades for Hospitals
Our blog post “Water Conservation Lessons for San Diego Plumbers” covers the great strides San Diego’s Palomar Hospital made in cutting water use by 30%. Technicians replaced of 3/8th inch sink valves with those just a pinhole wide. Exchanging 3.2 gallons per flush toilets with 1.8 gpf units also reduced water usage. More encouraging, these changes did not result in more maintenance calls or patient complaints. The hefty 30% reduction in water usage has encouraged planners of the brand new Palomar Medical Center, a new state-of-the-art hospital in Poway scheduled to open November 2015, to institute the same water-conserving features.
