When you buy a commercial building, you may be interested in setting up proper customer parking and making sure that the stock rooms have the right shelves and carts to hold the products. For a commercial building, you will need to make sure that the electrical systems and plumbing systems are in working order. The plumbing in an office building will have workers and customers, depending on the office size. Getting a septic system inspection is one of the first things that you may need to do when looking at the health of your new building.
Have the plumbing inspected for problems
Before moving into the new building, you should go ahead and have the plumbing inspected. Call in a commercial plumber to inspect the pipes and the water and toilet systems inside of your office building. Do not forget to include any floor drains that may be inside of washrooms and inside of stock rooms. Have the plumber look over the plumbing systems with a critical eye and give you a list of any issues that need immediate or tentative repairs.
Have the septic system cleaned out
Whether the building is a few years old or several decades old, you should have the septic system cleaned if you are going to be opening a new building. Have a commercial septic cleaning service come and clean out the septic system. This will clear the system of any sort of obstruction including excess toilet paper and any other products that can cause the septic system to back up. If the cleaners find any issues with the septic tank system, they may be able to let you know if the system needs to be upgraded, needs a new pump, or needs to be located.
Get a report from the water company
Water company reports are available for commercial buildings for several years when possible. Get a water report for the amount of water used monthly and the price of the old water bills. If there is a major flux that happened recently, this can symbolize an issue with your water and sewage system. If this happens, ask for a water and sewer expert to investigate the possible cause of the increase in usage. When you first open your building, keep a close watch on your water and sewage bills each month. If they are higher than expected, this can symbolize a hidden leak or a change that needs to be made in your plumbing and faucet systems.Share

Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Heather, and a few years ago, my partner and I got a very cheap property up in the mountains practically in the middle of nowhere. I knew we had to build, but there were many elements that I overlooked. I never even considered the idea that we wouldn't be connected to a town sewer system for example. However, I learned quickly as we built our septic tank. Through the process, I also researched a lot of alternatives to ensure we got the perfect septic system for our needs. If you are building on a new property and you don't have the option of sewer, this blog has everything you need to know about septic systems. I truly love to help others, and I hope these posts help you.
