Specialists in Commercial Plumbing

Every single business, project, and facility needs access to reliable, safe, high-quality plumbing. The water supply is essential for the free flow of water for various uses that help us stay clean and healthy. When it comes to commercial plumbing, the need to purchase, provision, and maintain better quality systems is even more important as the stakes tend to be higher.

Hospitals, schools, shopping malls, and corporate offices are all the domain of commercial plumbers. And the larger the project, the more it will be affected by poor decisions in earlier stages. This is just one reason you’ll want to get in touch with a company that is specifically experienced in commercial services and not just general work.

Maxey Plumbing has commercial experts familiar with the city codes and typical installation systems across all of Western Australia. The commercial services we provide include:

  • Hydro Tap Maintenance
  • Pipe Location Services
  • Pipe Relining
  • Septic Systems Maintenance
  • All Pollution Control For Waste
  • Water And High-Risk Services

Regardless of what issue you’re dealing with – whether a plumbing emergency or not – we can get to you as quickly as possible for a fast and direct repair.

Do I really need plumbing services?

Only if you want to save money and stay on the right side of the law. Water damage is not a trivial problem, and only licensed plumbers can work with the water supply system. This is because there are local codes for each city governing pipes, fixtures, and the many tools and components that are associated with the water system.

Without these standards and regulations in place, it would be a catastrophe and wildly inefficient. And trying to cut costs by using a general contactor that does not have experience in commercial services is likewise not the best idea.

Are these services expensive?

This depends on the nature and extent of the plumbing issue. If you need to replace a water heater, you can pay around $800-3,000. The hourly rate in Perth, for example, is around $100-150. A blocked pipe might cost you around $200 total to unclog. Most basic services like replacing a toilet basin, fixing a leaking faucet, or repairing a broken pipe will cost between $200-500.

Of course, these are only for the small scale repairs that you need to do every now and again. The costs for the initial work will vary massively depending on your project. The price to install new pipes for a small restaurant and a large shopping mall are going to be vastly different. And this is without even going into the variance in terms of the different types of the systems and the different charges per provider.

For example, there will be a huge difference in pricing between copper and CPVC. You might pay $120 per lineal metre for copper and $40 for CPVC. A similar variance will be found in the fixtures like showers and toilets as well as water heating systems. Large plumbing jobs will also entail other work such as backflow testing, excavation, sewage, consultancy, electric tracing, fire testing, power wiring, etc. The list goes on.

The hourly rate for plumbing services will depend more on the level of experience. The experts will charge closer to $150 an hour while entry-level professionals will charge closer to $40. But for larger projects, you won’t really be looking at an hourly rate and will be more concerned with a fixed price contract.

What are common commercial problems?

The typical issues for commercial projects tend to be similar in comparison to residential issues. These standard general issues will include:

  • Blocked drains, sinks, and toilets
  • Burst pipes
  • Low water pressure
  • Leaking taps and leaking pipes
  • Water heater malfunctions

However, the scope and the remedy for commercial issues will be totally different from that of a regular residential callout. In a multi-story housing complex or office block, a leak on one floor could be caused by an issue on another. There is a more complex system of interrelated parts and the whole ecosystem has to be considered.

How often should a commercial establishment get plumbing maintenance?

This will depend on the type of commercial establishment. You might have your own internal plumber or maintenance professional to fix issues as they arise. If this is the case, you might want to schedule a professional checkup every six months. Otherwise, every three months might be a safer choice.

Remember that the longer a leak goes undetected, the more it will cost to fix. If it leads to extensive water damage, it can cost you a lot of money. This is why regular checkups are needed, in tandem with high quality installations designed specifically for your business.

During a routine checkup, you can expect your contractor to check for leaking faucets, the supply lines to each fixture, vents, and water pressure. The sump pump and water heater will also be inspected. Backflow prevention is often a separate service than regular maintenance. It needs independent testing and submission.

How can I find a high-quality commercial service provider in Perth?

There is a checklist of items that you need to account for before hiring a commercial expert. All service providers need to be licensed to operate as well as insured. You will want to look for many years of experience and specific qualifications. Accreditations such as the CM3 are particularly useful since they indicate that the provider adheres to the relevant health and safety standards. Finally, you want to check online reviews to ensure that other customers were satisfied with this commercial professional.

Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Plumbing In Perth

Does Maxey Plumbing do both commercial servicing and commercial sanitary?

This is a controlled system of conveyance of water in a fitted and regulated line. Sanitary systems consist of an assembly of pipes, fixtures, and fittings which gather and direct sewage to the drainage system where it is drained to the sewer. They are tightly related, and we can easily work in both areas. We also provide high-quality septic systems maintenance, oil separators, and drain cameras for blocked pipes.

Does commercial service include hot water heating systems?

Yes. Commercial buildings will typically have multiple hot water heating systems for different areas of the building. Each hot water system will have different applications. Hotels and fitness centres will have large builders and hot water systems in place. These require specialized knowledge. Nothing will turn customers away more quickly than a lack of hot water! They will complain and leave negative reviews very rapidly. Hot water is an absolute necessity in a commercial context. Not only does the problem have to be fixed, but it has to be fixed as soon as possible.

How is commercial plumbing in Western Australia and Perth regulated?

This service in Perth is regulated by the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA), which sets out the guidelines for the design, construction, installation, replacement, repair, alteration and maintenance and drainage installations. These codes are designed to satisfy the official legislation known as AS/NZS 3500. There are also specific laws in each city and locality, but all will have to comply with the overarching legislation.

What questions should I ask a commercial plumber before hiring?

There are a few golden questions you should ask your commercial service provider bringing them on board for your project. These include:

  1. What warranty do you offer?
  2. How long have you been in business?
  3. What are your online ratings?
  4. Are you licensed and insured?
  5. How many commercial projects have you worked on?
  6. Who are you trusted by?
  7. Do you comply with the Australian codes?

Low-quality or inexperienced providers will not be able to answer these questions or provide the right proofs. You can also take the short route and simply use us since we have an excellent reputation as reliable experts throughout Western Australia.
