When you own a business, the building can become just as important as your home. That’s why it’s important to take regular plumbing maintenance and repairs seriously. And we wanted to let you in on a little secret: Northern Phoenix is exploding with commercial development! Luckily for you, City Plumbing Services in Cave Creek, Arizona, is your commercial plumbing one-stop-shop. Whether you need commercial equipment installed, or you need an application repaired, City Plumbing Services has you covered. Keep reading to find out our what our plumbing experts have to say about your Commercial Plumbing 101 questions.
Q1: Do you work with other companies?
A: Yes. City Plumbing Services, LLC., works side-by-side with contractors to deliver an exceptional finished product. It’s no secret that commercial plumbing and drainage systems are some of the most challenging designs and repairs that a plumbing engineer can face. That’s why it’s important to work with subject matter experts to complete a large-scale job. For example, our professional plumbers can easily repair a water heater, but may not be able to fix your dry wall from a water heater leak.
At City Plumbing Services, we recommend that you call a licensed plumber at the first warning signs of a plumbing issue. Are your sinks clogged? Is your water not producing enough hot water? The longer you wait, the more complex the solution may be.
Q2: Do you install commercial sinks?
A. Definitely. Most laws require any business that deals with the preparation or serving of food to the public to have proper sanitation procedures and equipment. Essentially, most food-related businesses suggest three types of commercial sinks: 3-bowl scullery, a prep sink, and a hand sink.
Here is a brief breakdown of the sinks:
- 3-Bowl Scullery: This is your primary sink to wash dishes and utensils.
- Prep Sink: Prep sinks help prevent cross-contamination and act as a great out-of-the-way place to wash vegetables, rinse food, drain colander items, and anything else that requires your food to touch water.
- Hand Sink: Is strictly for hand-washing only. This should be in an accessible location.
At City Plumbing Services, we can install these sinks in a jiffy. Also, we can install faucets, commercial dishwashers, and commercial mop sinks.
Q3: Do you repair commercial water heaters?
A: Of course! This is probably the #1 commercial plumbing 101 question we get. We repair both tank style and tankless water heaters. Did you know that residential water heater tanks are approximately 100 gallons, while commercial tanks are 25o gallons? Sometimes just have a larger water tank can be more time consuming repair. For example, some equipment will require longer service simply because of the way the unit was built. If you’re in the process of building your new commercial space, consider installing specific commercial equipment, such as a side-plumbed tank.
While we don’t want to toot our own horn, but we’re pretty great at installing and repairing with both residential and commercial water heaters. In fact, City Plumbing Services has experience with both tank style and tankless water heaters. We can install, repair, and provide emergency services in the event your water heater malfunctions or stops working.
Q4: What is a commercial grinder pump, and do I need one?
A: If you operate a business in either the food industry or hospitality sector, then the answer is yes, you need a grinder pump. Grinder pumps do exactly what their name states–they grind the waste into a fine slurry, and pump it to the central sewer system. Having a grinder pump helps with the accidental (or purposeful) flushing of unwanted things down toilets and sinks. Furthermore, for bars and restaurants, grinder pumps are used to grind down the scraps that come from industrial-sized sinks.
Q5: Do you provide commercial kitchen drainage cleaning?
A: You bet. We understand that operating a business in the food industry makes it difficult to schedule annual maintenance for your interior and exterior drainage systems. That’s why we provide full commercial kitchen draining cleaning 24/7. Even better, we provide the best technology for cleaning your kitchen drainage system…hydro-jetting. Essentially, hydro-jetting uses water power to scour even the nastiest of clogs! Our customers are more than just a service call, and City Plumbing Services is invested in helping your business running smoothly.

Don’t get us wrong. You should always hire a commercial plumbing company that is fully bonded, licensed, and insured.

That’s why we think you should call us for all your commercial and residential plumbing needs.
We pride ourselves in serving and educating a broad service of the Greater Northern Phoenix area. These include Cave Creek, Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Chandler, Surprise, and most of the East Valley of Arizona.
