Commercial Plumbing

As a business owner, you strive to create a comfortable, convenient, and safe environment for employees and clients. Your commercial plumbing system plays a significant role in this effort, providing fresh water and consistent drainage for restrooms, kitchens, and other areas. At Arrow Plumbing, Inc., our Plumbers in Libertyville can help you with every aspect of your commercial plumbing needs, from performing fast repairs for plumbing problems to installation and testing of sump pump equipment and backflow prevention devices.

Basics of Backflow Prevention

Backflow prevention protects potable (drinkable) water sources from accidental contamination by water lines that do not carry water fit for drinking. Most businesses and other commercial properties have one or more backflow prevention devices installed in their plumbing systems to ensure the safety of local drinking water.

  • Backflow can occur when changes in pressure cause a reversal of normal water flow in a plumbing system. This may cause non-drinkable water to enter potable water lines via areas where these lines connect, called cross-connections, and result in contamination.

  • There are a wide variety of backflow prevention devices available for commercial plumbing use. The best type of device for your business will depend upon local regulations and your plumbing system.

  • Simply installing a backflow prevention device is not sufficient to protect drinking water lines—your device must also undergo regular testing by a plumber to ensure it is functioning properly.

  • If you notice a problem with your backflow prevention device, it is imperative to schedule plumbing repairs immediately.

  • Because backflow prevention devices are often located outdoors, talk to your plumber about preventive measures, such as a cage or insulating sleeve or cover, to prevent theft, tampering, or broken pipes due to freezing weather.

Reasons to Consider Fixture Upgrades for Your Business

New fixtures are one of the most cost-effective and easiest upgrades you can make to your commercial plumbing system. You can reach an experienced plumber in Libertyville by calling Arrow Plumbing, Inc. at (847) 984-3258 for all your commercial needs, including new fixture installation, gas line repairs, and general plumbing maintenance.

  1. New fixtures use significantly less water than older ones. By replacing old faucets and toilets with new, low-flow options, you could save gallons of water every time a toilet is flushed or an employee washes his hands.

  2. Updated fixtures give your business a more modern look, showing that you care about the appearance of your property and the quality of your employees’ or clients’ experience.

  3. Old fixtures are more prone to breakdowns and leaks, raising your risk of plumbing problems. New fixtures offer better performance and peace of mind at the same time.
