Cold temperatures, normal wear and tear, and issues specific to commercial spaces can affect the lifespan of your plastic piping. If the pipes in your commercial building are plastic, and have began to crack, leak or show other signs of issues then it’s imperative you have them inspected by a professional plumber right away.
Symptoms of Polyvinyl Chloride Piping Issues
Plastic piping issues are detectable through a variety of symptoms. The most obvious symptom of a leaking or broken pipe is standing water. Leaking water will always follow the flow of gravity to find the lowest point it can collect in, which is often on floors around drain openings or near entries. If your building isn’t often occupied or inspected in the basement levels, you may notice a weak water pressure before finding pooled water. That’s why it’s important to inspect all areas that contain plastic piping on a regular basis for signs of leaks.
