What Should Your Commercial Plumbing Specialist Provide?

Monday, March 7th, 2016 by Butter Plumbing

We live in Paradise, NV, and the greater Las Vegas area thrives on the healthy functioning of commercial spaces. If you own or operate a business here, you know that a commercial plumbing system isn’t the same as a residential system. It’s more complex for starters, and usually has to support a lot more people. And that assume it’s not a restaurant or similar enterprise, which has its own unique needs for the plumbing. Because of that, you want a plumbing service that can handle the specifics of a commercial space, not just a residential plumber trying to transpose his or her skills to a much different set of problems. Here’s a brief list of some things your commercial plumbing specialist should provide. (more…)

Signs that You Should Consider Installing a Water Treatment System in Your Building

Monday, March 30th, 2015 by Butter Plumbing

Commercial plumbing installation can be a pretty big deal, considering its size and scope compared to residential plumbing. For that reason, it can sometimes be difficult to justify adding or altering your building’s plumbing unless it’s absolutely necessary.

Well, in some cases it is absolutely necessary. Hard water treatment is one of those cases. Read on for the signs that you should consider installing a water treatment system in your building.

Calcium Deposits

The biggest plumbing problem for many residential and commercial properties is that of hard water. Hard water is water with a very high mineral content, which it deposits on the surfaces that it flows over. Over time, those mineral deposits build up to become a pretty serious problem. One way to know for certain that you have a hard water problem is by examining the faucets in your building. If there is a white, crusty substance around the head of the faucet, you have calcium deposits. Calcium deposits build up around the head of the faucet as hard water flows out of it. If you have deposits around your faucet, then there’s a pretty good chance that you have them elsewhere in your system, which brings us to our next sign.

Decreased Water Pressure

The biggest problem with hard water is the effect it has on plumbing pipes. As the mineral deposits from the water start to build on the inner walls of the pipes, they will eventually start to restrict the flow of water. This will lead to decreased water pressure when you turn on a faucet in your building. If the deposits are not cleaned out in time, they can eventually block the flow of water completely. These deposits are known as “lime scale,” and can cause quite a bit of damage to your plumbing system.

The best way to combat hard water in your building is to install a water treatment system. This is a device that connects to the water line running into your building, and filters all the extra minerals out of the water flowing through it. This will both improve the quality of the water in your building, and protect your plumbing system from problems caused by hard water.
