The Importance of Regular Commercial Plumbing Maintenance and Inspection

Drains outside a house

Regular commercial plumbing maintenance is likely low on the totem pole of your priorities. Especially if everything appears to be functioning as it should. However, neglecting your plumbing systems can be costly. Commercial plumbing issues always occur at inconvenient times and never get better on their own. As the saying goes, “Pay now or pay larger later.” We recommend paying now for a professional plumbing inspection.

Plumbing systems are the lifeblood of any commercial property. Plan routine maintenance to maintain the functionality of your industrial plumbing systems. Your business, customers, and bottom line will appreciate it.

The Benefits of Regular Commercial Plumbing Maintenance

Regular maintenance and inspections of commercial plumbing systems are crucial for any business.
Here are 5 major benefits of regular commercial plumbing maintenance:

1. Reduce Costly Emergency Repairs and Breakdowns

Commercial plumbing emergencies and repairs can be frustrating and expensive. It can result in an unexpectedly large financial burden. That’s why we recommend scheduling regular commercial plumbing inspections and maintenance.

Routine maintenance helps identify plumbing issues before they become big plumbing issues. Fixing a minor clog or seal in a drain line is much more affordable than repairing water damage from a burst pipe. In the long run, you can save money with regular maintenance procedures.

During the inspection, we check your plumbing systems and units. This is to ensure everything works properly. We can spot signs of wear or damage and make recommendations. This helps to avoid disruptions in your business operations.

Nobody wants the headache of a flooded basement or closing up shop because of plumbing issues. With our commercial plumbing maintenance and inspections, you’ll have the peace of mind that all is in good working order.

2. Improve Plumbing Efficiency and Lower Utility Bills

Regular plumbing inspection of your plumbing system can help lower utility bills, by improving efficiency and preventing costly emergencies.

  • Reduce Water Usage

We can identify any leaks by performing routine checks on all plumbing fixtures. It helps to make the necessary repairs. Small drips and leaks may not seem like much, but over time can amount to litres of wasted water per day and increased water bills.

  • Improve Heating and Cooling

Commercial plumbing also plays an important role in heating and cooling plumbing systems. Clogs and drains can hamper the performance of HVAC equipment. Regular tune-ups of boilers, water heaters, and other units are essential. This ensures that every unit is running properly and not overworking.

Regular inspections and repairs will improve efficiency and lower utility costs.

How Often Should Commercial Plumbing Be Inspected?

Regular plumbing maintenance and inspections are to keep your property functioning properly. They are to help avoid expensive emergency repairs down the road. But how often should we schedule professional commercial plumbing services?

Every 3-6 Months

Twice a year, a licensed plumber should conduct a thorough check of the following:

All drains, pipes, water heaters, toilets, urinals, sinks, and other plumbing fixtures.

Water pressure levels. Low or fluctuating pressure can show leaks or clogs in the system.

Signs of deterioration like corrosion, leaks, or damage.


During the annual service call, a professional plumber will:

Perform a camera inspection of drain and sewer lines. This checks for clogs, tree root damage, or other issues.

Flush water heaters, boilers and tanks to remove built-up sediment and optimise efficiency.

Test backflow prevention devices to ensure proper operation and compliance with code requirements.

Check and service or replace plumbing vent fans as needed.
