PLUMBING SERVICES CASE STUDY
Leveraging Plumbing Best Practices for Long-Term Maintenance Affordability
Maintaining your plumbing requires significant attention to detail, and if not adequately prepared or knowledgeable, you might find yourself with a hefty repair bill in the thousands, multiplied by the hundreds or thousands of properties in your portfolio.
One way to lessen some of the financial burdens is to seek a reputable national contracting partner to make sure all your plumbing basics are covered.
Below is an example of how a recent client of ours leveraged our plumbing best practices to save on their plumbing program.
The client’s portfolio consisted of 300 fast-food locations across the nation that needed a significant update on their plumbing fixtures.
For several years, the client noticed each of their locations experiencing an increase in plumbing repairs that ranged from running faucets, broken toilets and the occasional blockage.
Continually dispatching service technicians to repair these minor repairs impacted their maintenance budget and also complicated matters further due to the lack of proper resources available when they required a technician.
The client sought us as a new partner, fully aware that a reputation like ours could not only supply the certified technicians in case of repairs and emergencies but a partner that could also offer a long-term sustainable plumbing program for their entire portfolio.
After reading about our best practice guidelines to lower their plumbing maintenance expenses, they agreed on a plan to refit all their bathroom fixtures with eco-friendly and cost-effective appliances.
To help mitigate their water bills, we offered to replace their existing toilets with low-flush options, strategically replacing them as units started to break down.
We also introduced the advantages of replacing their old-fashioned handle faucets with touchless sink technology, limiting the spread of germs and reducing the need for handles and other sink accessories like internal washers, packing glands, and cartridges.
By refitting their entire portfolio with new eco-friendly upgrades, the client would save on average 44% on their yearly water bill and saved an additional 55% on maintenance repairs, reducing on-site visitations by more than 33%.
Additionally, by signing with a national contractor, we provided the client with certified technicians for their inspections for all of their plumbing and drain services and received the added benefit of knowing that all of their plumbing would be covered under their new program.
