Commercial plumbing problems can have a devastating impact on the operations of almost any business. In addition to being highly disruptive for customers, this may also contribute to low morale among your workers. This is particularly applicable when the problem is impacting the use of your toilets. While you may assume it is impossible for you to avoid toilet problems, there are ways that you can help to mitigate this problem and keep your business's restrooms operational.

Choose Commercial Grade Toilets

It may not seem like the type of toilets that are installed will be very important. This assumption can lead to individuals simply choosing to install traditional residential toilets for their business due to their lower cost when compared to commercial units. While this may save you some on installation expenses, it can greatly increase the risk of problems developing with the toilet as you are unable to control the amount of toilet paper that people will use, and residential toilets have much smaller piping. In contrast, commercial toilets are made with wide pipes so that they will be far more difficult to clog.

Check The Toilet For Signs Of Problems Each Day

At the end of each business day, you will want to take the time to inspect the toilets for potential problems. Due to the intense usage these appliances will experience over the course of a day, they can be more prone to developing leaks. When you are inspecting the toilet, you should look for signs of water leaking around the base of the toilet, on the handle or anywhere else. If you notice these leaks, you should arrange for a plumber to inspect the toilet as soon as it is possible as these leaks can cause considerable water damage if they are left unchecked.

Keep The Septic Line Clean

The septic line is necessary for transporting the waste water from the toilet out of the business. Unfortunately, it is a common issue for businesses to fail to maintain the septic line, and this can cause the plumbing to be more likely to become backed up. This results from waste gathering along the interior of the pipes, which can eventually stop or hinder the water flowing through the pipes. Due to the large volumes of wastewater that travel through the septic lines of a business, you will want to have this work done each year or two in order to prevent the plumbing system from becoming compromised.
