Misconceptions About Commercial PlumbingThough we work in the houses and businesses of millions of Americans every day, many people have misconceptions about exactly what a commercial plumber does and why we do it. Here are the top four most common misconceptions we hear all the time about commercial plumbing and why they’re wrong.

If it’s sold at a big box store, it’s safe for my pipes.

More and more aisle space these days is being taken up by commercial plumbing solutions in a fancy bottle. But buyer beware – not only are these magic solutions not always solutions, they also can be extremely harmful to both the environment and your plumbing fixtures.

The truth is, though these quick-fixes may seem to work in the interim, they could very well be making the problem worse. Only a professional can diagnose and fix serious plumbing issues, so save your money at the store.

A big job means a big expense – I can do this on my own.

In the workforce, especially in small-to-medium-sized businesses, oftentimes you have to be a jack of all trades to get the job done. So, when a plumbing problem comes to the forefront, you might be tempted to roll up your sleeves and get out your toolbox to try and remedy it. Right? Wrong!

Commercial plumbing is serious business and should only be attempted by professionals who’ve been properly trained and certified to do the job right. Many plumbing problems which may be a small fix to begin with are exasperated by good-natured but ill-equipped handymen. Don’t fall into this common trap that can end up tripling your cost, instead, leave these kind of jobs to the professionals like Roto Rooter to make sure things are done right.

A flowing drain or flushing toilet means nothing is wrong.

If your plumbing starts draining or flowing slow, you may be apt to ignore it. The water is still flowing, so there’s no problem, right? Wrong again!

The truth is, if your toilet, pipes, or drains are draining or flowing slower than normal, it could be evidence of a much bigger problem. Like everything else, issues that are caught early have the best chance of being easily solved. Don’t be fooled into thinking the problem will clear up on its own – you need a professional plumber.

I don’t need a plumber until I have a problem.

In commercial businesses, you can’t afford to have a major plumbing mishap possibly close your doors for days or weeks at a time. To best distance yourself from a disaster, schedule regular drain cleanings and inspections with professionals who will help keep your plumbing in tip-top shape.
