Do you own or manage a commercial property?  Perhaps a group of units, shopping centre, fast food venue or maybe even a hotel or a nursing home whatever the case is if your property relies upon continual operation with absolutely ZERO down time then you need a plumbing firm who can deliver regular programmed plumbing and gas services to ensure 100% reliability.

There are many things that can be regularly checked and various tasks which can be performed to help ensure that your facility does not fall subject to catastrophic failure and lead to embarrassing down time which results in a loss of income and customers.

So what are a few of the more important items which you can have regularly checked and inspected to help ensure the ongoing operation of your property?

Hot Water Performance

  Majority of commercial properties operate a minimum of 2 hot water systems manifolded together in the case of failure from one of the Hot Water Service’s.  There are a few items which can be checked to see if parts are starting to wear out.  Checking load ratings on circulating pumps, monitoring water deliver temperatures, measuring resistance across elements and checking the correct cut in/out temperatures of thermostats.  Apart from these items there are other things which should be monitored:  Age of tanks and furnaces, when all parts where last worked on and lead times on getting new parts.  Items such as large commercial hot water tanks and circulating pumps are not just your standard off the shelf item and in most circumstances have significant lead times to acquire these items mostly up to a week and then there is the issue of getting the parts into their location. Will a crane be needed or perhaps will the water to the Hotel or Nursing home need to shut down meaning the work must be done late at night?

Drainage Lines

Nothing can cause a bigger problem than blocked drains.  As buildings get older so do the drainage systems and when it comes to places such as shopping centres and hotels all kinds of funny things make their way into the sewerage systems so you need to ensure your drain lines are in perfect working order.  It is vitally important to have routine maintenance performed on all drain lines.  CCTV Camera Inspections can show areas of drains that require immediate repairs or sections that may need to be monitored for future work down the track.  The use of Hydro Jetting technology allows for thorough cleansing of all pipe work regardless of its size and with the accompaniment of internal camera investigations ensures trouble free drainage solutions during busy periods.  Non-invasive methods of drainage replacements and repairs is a speciality that we offer along with remote location access ensuring that disruption and down time is limited allowing for continued operation of your business.

As most property owners and managers know it’s much safer to be on top of the blockage before it becomes a disaster in the operations of your business.
