Common Commercial Plumbing Problems
Clogged Toilet or Drains are common plumbing issues for commercial facilities. If your facility has a clogged toilet or drain, shut off the water to avoid overflow and water damage. In commercial facilities, the most commonly clogged drains are the kitchen sinks, especially those in schools, restaurants, hospitals and others where grease and oil is commonly poured into drains. The grease should be allowed to cool and emptied into a sealed container, and disposed of in the garbage or collected for recycling.
When a toilet or sink won’t drain there may be a blockage in the drain or sewer pipe. A clogged toilet can typically be cleared with a plunger. However, when plunging is not enough, contact a licensed professional plumber to provide plumbing services for your plumbing in Arlington.
Benjamin Franklin Plumbing can solve even stubborn clogged drain and toilet issues. Our plumbers have the tools necessary to remove the blockage in the clogged toilet. In a clogged drain, our plumbers utilize a video pipe inspection with a small camera providing a live view deep within your plumbing in Arlington, enabling them to find the source of the blockage, and to determine the appropriate action or repair. For commercial buildings with a clogged drain, water-jetting is generally the best method of clearing a clogged pipe.
Faucet and Fixture leaks can range from the occasional drips to a running stream of water. A leaky faucet can be due to damaged seats, washers, or O-rings. Wear due to use is usually the cause, and hard water can facilitate wear. Large facilities can have multiple leaky faucets and result in a costly and wasteful loss of water. An additional problem that can result as a result of leaky faucets or other ignored or hidden water leaks is mold and mildew. Once this issue occurs remediation can be quite costly, and requires the services of a mold remediation company.
Ultimately, taking care of the problems with your facility’s plumbing in Arlington is the ideal solution and less costly by far.

Water heater problems are common with incorrect water temperature and leaks. When a leak occurs in the water heater, shut off the water and contact a Benjamin Franklin plumber for repair. Our plumbers can provide water heater repair or replace your appliance. In new builds we also install water heaters and the other components of your plumbing in Arlington.
Sewer Odors may occur in a facility’s floor drain. Beneath a floor drain is a U-shaped pipe filled with water. As long as the water remains, it blocks sewer odors from being released into the restroom. However, these often dry up resulting in the release of sewer odors. This can be prevented by pouring small amounts of a specially made liquid odor block down floor drains every few months. Toilet leaks can occur in toilets due to water bypassing the toilet flap. To verify a flapper leak, drop food coloring into the toilet’s tank. If the color appears in the bowl, then a leak is present. Contact your Benjamin Franklin plumber for an efficient toilet repair that can prevent the waste of thousands of gallons of water each year.
