Commercial plumbing in Arizona takes a beating. Commercial plumbing, as compared to residential plumbing, is used far more, and have large volume demands placed on them.

As Gilbert plumbers, it’s our job to make sure your commercial plumbing system takes that beating and keeps on ticking.

Now, when it comes to commercial plumbing any plumbing problems need to be addressed immediately.


In 1955, when Walt Disney was putting the final touches on Disneyland, his contractor asked him to choose because they were running out of time: fountains or bathrooms.

One of his more famous lines was, “People can buy Pepsi Cola but they can’t pee in the streets.”

Well, the same goes for your business. When the plumbing is down, it’s imperative that you address the issue immediately.

Here are some common commercial plumbing issues that every Gilbert business faces at one time or another…

Clogged Drains: This one seems pretty obvious. Clogged toilets are a nuisance, and an incredibly common issue with commercial plumbing. But it’s not only toilets that get clogged, it’s sink drains…which is just as common, if not moreso. Things like grease, broken glass, and plastic can often end up down the drain, as well as all kinds of food and waste.

The first option is a plunger, but if that doesn’t work you’ll need to call in a commercial plumbing pro to snake the drain.

Having a commercial plumber out every so often to audit your plumbing system, making sure that everything is in working order, can actually help you to avoid clogged drains in the future.

Fixture Leaks: Because commercial plumbing systems need to handle a great deal of demand, leaks can easily occur. The leaks can be from normal wear and tear, or from damage to the pipes.

Water Temp Issues: A commercial business must have hot and cold running water, especially if your commercial business is in the food industry.

If the water isn’t hot for long, or doesn’t get cold enough, call C. Slany Plumbing.

Sewer Odors: The last thing any customer or client wants to smell when sitting down to eat, or attending a meeting at your establishment, is sewer odor. And, in fact, it’s quite common…especially here in Arizona during the summer months.

Below a floor drain is a U-shaped pipe. As long as it is filled with water, it blocks sewer odors from being released into the restroom. However, these often dry up and release sewer odors.

Call your commercial plumber at C. Slany Plumber to have a look.

Running Toilets: As a commercial business owner, you worry about the bills and the budget. So, why waste that budget on a running toilet? If your commercial plumbing toilets are continually running, it’s time to give us a call.
