Here at Monster Plumbing, we want to help you do what’s best for your home or business, and we offer a wide range of residential and commercial plumbing services to do just that. We want our customers to understand why it’s important to choose a plumber with the right kind of experience for their project, so in this article, we will be going over some key differences between residential and commercial plumbing.
- Daily Usage- One of the most important differences between residential and commercial plumbing has to do with the level of usage each type of system sees every day. A residential plumbing system is used by just a handful of people, while a commercial plumbing system is used by hundreds or even thousands of people, hundreds or thousands of times a day.
- Size- Another difference between residential and commercial plumbing is the contrast in size between the two types of systems. Residential systems tend to be much smaller than those for commercial buildings, and commercial plumbing also tends to be more complex due to the greater demands it needs to serve.
- Durability- Because commercial plumbing systems need to keep up with the demands of potentially thousands of people per day, they are built to be more durable than those in private residences. If commercial plumbing used the same components as residential plumbing did, those components would quickly wear out due to the much heavier usage they would be subjected to, so stronger materials are required.
