In an older building, you may notice over time that your plumbing does not perform as well as it should. Whether it is experiencing frequent leaks, backups, or you notice your water bill is especially high, bad plumbing can lead to a host of difficulties as you’re trying to run a business. Fortunately, you always have the option to replace your plumbing and get it up to code.
Benefits of Replacing Plumbing
You may think that repiping your entire facility is too much of a hassle, especially if you are a renter and not the owner. However, there are several key benefits that can make this extensive facility improvement project worthwhile:
- Efficient piping can help reduce water consumption
- Pipes are less likely to back up, crack, or burst
- You can reinsulate piping to protect it from freezing temperatures
- New plumbing can give you new options for restroom design, water usage, and more
The Cost of Replacing Plumbing
Most plumbing installations cost between $1 and $5 per linear foot, plus the cost of new fixtures and accessories. New construction typically costs more than replacing old pipes, but you should talk to your MaintenX contractor about exact estimates before planning your renovation. They can help you choose energy-efficient plumbing and fixtures and help design your plumbing infrastructure for better overall performance.
