How is Commercial Plumbing Different from Residential Plumbing

At its basic definition, plumbing is plumbing whether it is in a home or a business. However, commercial use requires familiarity with local regulation and additional technical consideration to meet your business needs.

Stick to the code:

With new or even existing businesses, adherence to code is essential to protecting public health and safety. The system in any private or public building is part of the community water and sewage system. It’s critical that an expert is consulted to make sure your business stays in compliance.  Plumbing code is the set of rules and regulations imposed by a government on any work involving the installation of water or sewer facilities in a home or business.  Plumbers and most jurisdictions in the Unites States follow the Universal Plumbing Code which is set by the International Associate of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials.  Code is updated frequently to account for new knowledge and technology.  In addition, our local cities, counties, or states may have additional codes that must be followed.  As a licensed plumber, NRH ensures top quality and strict adherence to these regulations.

Unique requirements:

Plumbers must also be familiar with the water requirements of a business. Because a commercial facility is sure to use more water than your average home, NRH Plumbing’s qualified technicians are trained to accurately calculate your water usage.  We will make recommendations to ensure you have an efficient and economical system plan. During commercial construction, your plumbing contractor should make considerations for the number of bathrooms, sinks, and other plumbing equipment required to meet your business needs.  The fixtures used in a business are also much different from your residence, and NRH can recommend the best solutions.  With the size and number of plumbing fixtures, a qualified commercial plumber needs to ensure that your commercial plumbing system can handle the water flow from your building to your sewer system with the correct number of pipes, sinks, and drains.

Problems are sure to arise.  With a more complicated network and the advanced fixtures, you should always rely on the expertise of a professional.  When your business requires the services of a good, reliable commercial plumber, look no further than NRH.  Our skilled commercial plumbers can handle all of your commercial maintenance needs.
