Plumbing: Overlooked But Essential...

Print Friendly

Almost every business has plumbing, but during renovations and maintenance, it can be one of the most important but neglected realms of restaurant equipment. A faucet seems ageless, a grease trap eternal, but proper upkeep and testing of these plumbing supplies and fixtures is essential to maintaining the sources and uses of water—the lifeblood of any restaurant.                                     Especially in colder regions, winter power outages can drop the temperature of buildings below freezing, putting even the pipes on stainless steel utility sinks at risk to burst. A small drop in water pressure can render any rinse unit completely useless. General wear and calcium buildup also ages and corrodes faucets and the cogs in large utility dishwashers. Every restaurant, café, or deli depends heavily on cleanliness, both for health codes and practicality: a malfunctioning sink can cripple an eatery by stockpiling dirty dishes, and without any source of water, cooking and brewing become impossible in a matter of minutes.

The key safeguard against such a paralyzed business is simple servicing to test the proper functioning of plumbing equipment. Old water filters and disposals in particular have a high likelihood of sudden breakdown, so an investment in more modern machines might be a wise one. Otherwise, keeping spare parts like spindles and replacement valves on hand can be an inexpensive prevention technique. But the most important action is simply not to ignore plumbing. Refrigerators and ranges may be used more consciously, but the fixtures supplying water are indispensable to an operative business.
