A property manager should be up to date with the current regulations and trends in managing residential and commercial properties. In order to manage properties efficiently, a property manager must know various fields like plumbing, waste removal, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) law & regulations, and fire safety regulations.
Plumbing should be a priority, especially if he or she is overseeing properties with hundreds of commercial or residential units – as unexpected problems can happen monthly, weekly or daily.
If you are a property manager, below are six important tips that could help you through some plumbing issues.
1. Identify what is a plumbing emergency
Any of the followings can constitute a plumbing emergency:
- Overflowing toilets
- Broken pipes
- Corroded pipes
- Flooded bathrooms
- Sewage leakage
- Gas line leaks
If you are faced with any of these issues, call your local plumbing contractor for a quick fix.
2. Leaking toilets can cost you 90,000 gallons of water in a month
A waste of 90,000 gallons can lead to massive water bills. Spread the 90,000 across multiple toilets and properties and your water bills can be unimaginably high.
Sin City Plumbing can help you locate the leaks so you can reduce water consumption and water bills.
3. Enlist an accredited plumber
A plumbing license is required in most states to do any kind of plumbing work, especially when it involves commercial properties. If you’re a property manager, you may face penalties if you don’t hire an accredited plumber to work on your site. Sin City Plumbing is licensed to meet all of your municipality and state needs.
4. Check your water heating systems
Your properties’ water heating systems need a tune-up. Regardless if your water heater is a solitary unit for a small office or you have a water heating system for an office complex, you should have your water heating systems regularly checked out. The process entails draining the system, which in turn will expel any sediment that made its way into the system.
5. Perform a video-scope inspection
Metals corrode at some point in time. Corrosion on metal pipes develops as a result of salts, alkaline water, sulfates, sand, oxygen, rust, by-products, and by having sediments form in heating systems.
Our certified plumbers at Sin City Plumbing use a video-scope inspection system that can let you see what is in your pipes. If there are any problems, your metal pipes can be repaired accordingly.
