Three Frequent Code Violations and How to Avoid Them

Skipping a step here and there does not often land us in hot water. Sometimes we just want the quickest connection between the sink drain and the sewer line. Shortcuts in commercial plumbing, however, can lead not only to potential structural or material damage but also to the bane of every business owner, the code violation.

Three Frequent Code Violations and How to Avoid Them

As with most things in life, a little prevention can go a long way. Here are a few of the most common plumbing code violations for commercial businesses and how to avoid them.

  • Failure to provide hot water

One of the most common, but easily avoidable, code violations is a failure to provide hot water. This is especially an issue for restaurants and not providing ample hot water for your establishment may result in temporary or permanent closure. It is important to maintain a safe and appropriate temperature (100-120 degrees Fahrenheit) and ensure that the hot water tank is not in need of repair or replacement. Regularly scheduled maintenance as well as having the correct size and type of hot water tank for your establishment are just a couple of ways to help prevent this inconvenient and avoidable violation.

  • Improperly maintained equipment

Another issue that commonly crops up in commercial plumbing: improperly maintained facilities. When small problems, such as leaky pipes or machines, go unnoticed or ignored they can often lead to larger and more costly repairs. Don’t just plug up minor leaks, calling in a professional when you first notice it can save money, time, and frustration. Implementing a regular check-up of exposed pipes or potential problem areas, such as frequently used machines or equipment and high-traffic plumbing, will ensure you catch these minor issues before they get worse.

  • Backflow/improper drainage

Our final common code violation is another issue which can easily be prevented by instituting check-ups at regular intervals and maintaining proper installation and operation procedures. Backflow, caused by clogs or improper drainage, is a violation which can also lead to a shutdown of operations. Keeping drains cleared and ensuring that facilities have properly installed equipment go a long way in preventing this particular problem. Flood sensors may also be useful in providing an alert of elevated water levels.
