Commercial Pipe Riser Replacement
Commercial pipe riser replacement in high rise buildings and medium to low rise buildings is something that tenants can all live without. However, there comes a time, even if the original pipe installation is copper, that pinhole leaks can develop and can cause extensive water damage. Sometimes leaks can occur in heating pipes that are chemically treated to ensure good circulation flow of heated water but injected chemicals can also be corrosive and cause etching and weakening of the pipe walls especially around sharp bends. It’s like fast flowing river eroding its banks as water passes. Before long more pinholes will start to develop throughout the entire system.
High rise hot water pipes are even more vulnerable to corrosion due to recirculation and friction of constant water movement in hot water pipes. New high rise condo hot water pipes can prematurely have leaking water pipes in as little as 10 years.
Heat riser pipe replacements and hot water pipe replacements do not have to be a disruptive plumbing pipe replacement contract. GreenCity plumbing crews are familiar with city plumbing bylaws, codes and plumbing regulations and will work closely with your tenants to minimize water disruptions and water downtimes due to plumbing pipe replacements.
GreenCity plumbing crews will complete heating risers and hot water risers first and only tie in to existing hot water branches after all vertical risers have been installed. Naturally, installing copper pipes manufactured in a copper pipe factory mill to rigid modern exacting standards is absolutely the best way to go.

Water was gushing from the floor at our carwash was due to huge water leak in the 6 in original iron water pipe installed more than 50 years ago. Without water, our carwash is out of business.

In the meantime,... - RMB, Car Wash Owner, North York
Old steam boilers seemed more off than on. GreenCity replaced old boilers with new gas fired Fulton boilers. Building tenants now come to work without any expectations of “no heat” now that the new boilers are installed.- RSW, Commercial Building Landlord, Toronto
After major storms, lower level of our 60 year old industrial building always flooded. GreenCity Plumber determined cause of flooding was due to building storm water being connected to an internal plugged French drain system on our property. Green City recommended that property storm water be diverted directly to City storm water drains. GreenCity prepared engineered drawings for the... - AS, Industrial Processing Business , Scarborough
