Residential Plumbing vs Commercial – What is the Difference?
Many people don’t realize that there is a difference between residential and commercial plumbers. They often think that one plumber is much the same as another. However, there are a few differences between these two types of plumbers. Our company offers both residential and commercial plumbing services and we also provide a 24-hour emergency service to all of our clients.
Below are a few aspects that differentiate residential or home plumbing from commercial or business-related plumbing.
Sizes of the Properties in Question
Most residential plumbing structures will consist of two floors, while commercial plumbing jobs will involve work being done on several different floors. Houses have been designed and constructed as single functioning plumbing buildings, while many commercial properties will share one centralized system that gets shared by a number of different users. Commercial properties will also contain far more toilets, sinks and drains than residential homes, which means that their plumbing setups will be far more complex than those found in homes.
Scope of Work
Another distinct difference between residential and commercial plumbing will be the size of the job being done. Scopes of work for commercial properties will be far larger than those being planned for residential homes. As a result, it is essential for the plumbers doing to the work to have an extensive knowledge regarding industrial plumbing setups and systems.
For instance, in office blocks, customers and employees will use bathroom facilities, which places far higher demands on the plumbing setup. In addition, plumbing regulations and codes will be different to those required for residential plumbing projects. It is essential for plumbers to have experience and knowledge of the required codes before starting any work in residential or commercial properties.
Types of Issues Experienced
In most cases, plumbing problems experienced in residential properties will not be overly complicated to deal with or differ much. However, owing to the fact that commercial plumbing setups are more intricate, the range of issues experienced will differ significantly. As a result, it will take far more time and experience to locate issues being experienced in commercial buildings. In addition, commercial plumbers will have to know how their proposed solutions are going to affect an entire building.

Why Correct Plumbing is Crucial

Repairing Frozen Pipes and Preventing Future Recurrences
Although California enjoys a warm climate for most of the year, there are sometimes cases where unexpected climate changes can catch homeowners off guard. This can result in pipes freezing shut or even bursting from time to time. Even if there is a hairline-sized crack in one of your home’s water pipes, it can result in you losing up to 200 gallons of water per day.
Water Softener Systems
If you live in a hard water area, there is a strong chance that water pipes can become scaled up in little to no time at all. Our plumbers are able to install various types of water softening systems to help prevent this from happening.
Good plumbing systems are a crucial part of our everyday lives. Although you cannot see the pipes and drains that ensure an efficient plumbing system, it is essential that these be maintained regularly.
