Condominium plumbing systems are notably more complex than are those in single-family homes and businesses. Although the pipework inside and around individual units are the responsibility of the resident or unit owner, those located in public areas are generally the responsibility of the property manager or owner.
Below are the Most Common Plumbing Issues We Run Into In Condominiums:
Clogged toilets are a commonality in condominiums, taking shockingly little to become obstructed. Luckily this is an easily resolved issue with the right tools and approach.
Obstructed Drain Pipes:
Accumulations of grease, hair, soap residue, bathing products, and other items, are among the most common reasons drains in sinks, bathrooms and showers become clogged.
In colder areas, this is probably the most difficult and harmful plumbing problem. Extremely low temperatures can cause water in pipes to freeze and expand, breaking pipes open and causing significant damage.
Leaking Faucets and Pipes:
Leaky faucets are not only common in condominiums, they represent one of the biggest wastes in utility bills and natural resources, with even small drips adding up to 100s or thousands of gallons of waste.
Water Pressure Issues:
Multi-unit condominiums place large demands on water supplies throughout the building. This often results in issues regarding water pressure.
