The difference in needs, materials used and even the layout itself makes each commercial plumbing system different from the last. In order to ensure consistently effective repairs, Howe professionals understand these differences, including:
Commercial plumbing systems are larger and more complex: The sheer size and density of many commercial plumbing systems can influence what problems are more common as well as the best options for repairs. For example, taller buildings must keep water pressure consistent from the 1st floor to the top floor. Other facilities host large events with hundreds or even thousands of people, increasing the number of people using these systems at the same time.
Many systems need custom parts or equipment: Commercial properties like industrial plants rely on custom components for process piping or other specialized manufacturing equipment. Howe technicians pay close attention to custom components to keep them in working shape.
Industrial plants and similar properties work with hazardous materials: From flammable fuel sources to volatile chemicals, commercial plumbing such as specialty piping must often be durable enough to stand up to hazardous materials.
There are additional regulations for safety: Local, state and federal regulations make sure the products we use and the services we enjoy are safe. Regulations for commercial plumbing may restrict how repairs are completed, or if specific certifications are legally required. For example, many facilities must include ADA accommodations to make sure the entire community can enjoy them.
