What is Commercial Plumbing?

Commercial plumbing is plumbers who specialize in installing, repairing, and maintaining any water supply infrastructure throughout commercial buildings like schools, medical facilities, restaurants, and retail stores. Commercial plumbers know how to install kitchen and bathroom fixtures, water fountains, sprinkler systems, and sewer and water lines. They must know how to work with any industrial-grade pipes and outlets. Commercial plumbing also means that the plumber must know state and city codes and guidelines for commercial buildings. 

Commercial Plumbing Vs. Residential Plumbing

Commercial plumbing has many differences compared to residential plumbing. Commercial plumbing is a more in-depth process because the plumbing system will be used a lot more and be in more demand. With the increased usage commercial buildings require a lot more piping and outlets. Businesses need to provide restrooms and sinks for their staff and clients, which are typically used more compared to residential restrooms. The plumbing system for commercial buildings is much more complex than residential buildings. Commercial plumbing inspections must be done frequently to make sure that local codes are being followed. Buildings with multiple floors will have their own fixtures that need to regularly be maintained. Residential plumbing also has to follow local codes, but does not usually get inspected regularly, and does not require demanding piping and fixtures like commercial buildings, because the usage is less.
