Cost-effective and convenient, flushometers are widespread in modern public restrooms. When measured against the design of traditional gravity-flush toilets that are common to residential homes, flushometers are far stronger and water-efficient.
Of course, like all plumbing fixtures, a flushometer will occasionally break down or fail to operate at maximum efficiency. When this happens, it can be difficult to find the right valves and components. At Beehive Plumbing, we carry a wide variety of battery powered, solar powered, and water powered flushometers for the urinals and toilets of your commercial, institutional, or industrial restroom. Our selection includes both hands-free and handle-operated parts.
Flushometers are metal water-diverters that connect directly to plumbing lines for commercial toilets and urinals. This allows the device to flush waste using water pressure from the main water supply, eliminating any need for the standing tanks of water that are necessary in gravity-flush toilets.
Helping business keeping restrooms clean, comfortable, and operating at peak capacity, flushometers are extremely powerful and reliable.
Commercial Flushometer Installation, Replacement, and Repair
Because flushometers require a water system that typically exceeds those found in private residences and smaller buildings, they are generally installed in commercial settings. When flushometers malfunction or fail, businesses must often find replacement and/or repair options quickly.
At Beehive Plumbing, we offer round-the-clock service 24/7 to better meet the needs of our commercial clients. Our skilled and knowledgeable plumbers are fully qualified to install, replace, and repair a wide range of flushometer units.
Common Flushometer Problems
The restrooms of commercial, institutional, and industrial organizations (such as retail shops, schools, and factories) tend to get plenty of traffic. This high-volume use can cause significant wear and tear to plumbing fixtures.
Although they generate a powerful flush that typically clears waste from pipes instantly and entirely, flushometers systems do clog from time to time. When this happens, they can create great problems for the layperson who simply doesn’t understand how to fix them.
- A complete failure to flush
- An insufficient flush that fails to adequately clear waste
- Leaking valves
- Lurching vibrations during flushing
- Short flushes that shut off almost immediately
- Long flushes that either fail to shut off or shut off only after extended periods of time
Flushometers vs. Traditional Tank Toilets
Because they do not rely upon a raised water tank to operate, a toilet/urinal that uses a flushometer is able to eliminate the refill problems that plague traditional residential toilets. The absence of a tank also enables the design of far sleeker plumbing fixtures that can fit into far smaller spaces.
Flushometers provide a high-pressure flush that prevents clogs that might otherwise occur in gravity-flush toilets. And because they do not have tanks, flushometer-based toilets/urinals are significantly more tamper-proof. Flushometer units also offer a hands-free flushing option for maximum cleanliness and convenience.
