In the plumbing industry, there are different types of plumbing systems. Each one of these systems is designed in a particular way to meet various needs. Examples of the different kinds of systems include:
And, just to keep things interesting, there are subtypes that are under the commercial umbrella. These include medical centers, office building, restaurants, gas stations, etc. The list goes on and on.
Why the distinction between systems? Although all plumbing systems have similar components, each individual system requires special skills set when it comes to installation, maintenance, and service.
How to Pick the Right Plumber for the Job
If you need commercial plumbing installed or repaired, it’s very important you choose the right company to make sure the plumbing system is handled correctly. First and foremost, the plumbing company should carry the correct plumbing contractor’s license. In California, one of the areas Rooter Hero Plumbing operates, that license is called a C-36 California Plumbing Contractors License.
Once you determine the company meet the correct licensing requirements, the next step is determining their expertise. The various commercial plumbing systems and their subtypes have different challenges and require precise training. Plumbers with experience working with industrial systems, for example, will be more likely to accurately troubleshoot the situation and offer long-term solutions instead of applying a Band-Aid to the problem.
Large plumbing companies may have the ability to handle all commercial, industrial, and institutional systems while smaller companies or independent contractors may specialize in just one of these areas.
Picking a plumber with the right experience can also keep your business running with minimal interruptions. A plumber who isn’t comfortable working with commercial systems could end up causing more harm than good and cost you valuable production time.
