From installation to maintenance and repair, your plumbing system needs to be in good hands. Kay Plumbing has been providing industrial and commercial plumbing services for over a decade now, and we have hundreds of reviews to speak on the quality of our service.

Industrial Facilities Need Experienced industrial plumbers

Your building is large, complex, and built special to your industry. When you inevitably run into a plumbing problem, you want to know you’re in good hands and that you have a plumbing company that will listen to you. You may not be a master plumber, but you’re a master of your field, and you know what you need from your facility to do good work safely.

Kay Plumbing has been serving South Carolina since 2008. We show up ready for the job at the time we agreed upon, and we listen to what you’re telling us you need. We ask questions if we need to in order to give you the best advice and solution to your problem we can, and we’ll answer any questions you have so that we’re always on the same page.

Plumbing Experts for Any Industrial Installation or Repair Service

We install or repair gas lines for all needs

Gas Line Installation, Maintenance, and Repair

Natural gas is an economical way to power fixtures in your building. Unfortunately, it’s highly flammable and dangerous, and the nearest gas main may not be immediately accessible to your property. Gas line installations and repairs should be handled by a plumber that is qualified and honest. Regular maintenance to help prevent unexpected repairs that could pause operations altogether is also necessary. Kay Plumbing is always upfront about what a large plumbing project like gas installation will cost, and we explain what we’re doing and why so you’re always informed.


Clog and Drain Repairs

Clogs can happen to anyone. If you can’t plunge a toilet or unclog a sink successfully on your own, it’s best to have a plumber come out quickly. Because of the size of your building, a blockage can cause issues in multiple drains before you know it. Kay Plumbing can bring specialized plumbing equipment to get deeper into your pipes than your snake drain or plunger might be able to, and we can provide same-day services.

Sanitation System Services

Your septic and wastewater system is undergoing heavy use, and even with high-grade plumbing to accommodate the additional wear and tear that comes with that, it won’t always keep up. You need a qualified professional who understands the scale of the system they’re working with and can provide tailored solutions and assistance.

Oil Water Separator Services

If your building is still under construction or if you’re expanding your business, you need an oil water separator that fits the needs of your industry and expected usage. You don’t want one that meets the bare minimum of state or federal regulations – you want one that meets and exceeds the bare minimum of what you’ll need day-to-day to handle wastewater.

Industrial and Laboratory hazard waste meeting local and federal regulations.

Lab Plumbing Installation, Maintenance, and Repair

Whether you’re building a new lab or you have an older building, the correct handling of your plumbing is critical to prevent any hazardous chemicals from entering public water mains or interacting with the environment or staff. Especially if you have an older lab and you can’t be totally sure what chemicals might have gone down your drains or in what quantity, we recommend having a qualified plumber handle routine maintenance and any suspected repairs needed at your facility.

Safety Shower and Eyewash Station Installation

Depending on what chemicals and materials your facility handles, eyewash stations and safety showers are necessary precautions in case of accidents. We’ll make sure you’re meeting code regulations, and we’ll answer any questions you may have about what we’re doing and why. You know better than us what hazardous materials your staff regularly handles, so we’ll base our advice on what you tell us.

Solar Hot Water Heater Installation and Maintenance

Natural gas and electricity prices contribute a large portion of your utility bills every month, and a big percentage of that usage comes from your water heater. Solar hot water can cut down on the cost of heating water significantly because solar power is always free. It might seem costly up front, but in the long run, it can add up to huge savings because it never costs money, and the system generally needs very little maintenance. It can last well over a decade, too. Solar hot water can’t cover all of your water heating costs, but the offset it can make on your utilities is worthwhile, and it benefits the environment, too.

Why Work with Kay Plumbing

From a broken water heater to an issue processing wastewater, you need working plumbing so your doors don’t have to close and your employees can work in a safe, comfortable environment. You need a reliable plumber who can give you high-quality services on a regular basis and in an emergency.

What Are Our Customers Saying

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I have an issue with my gas line?

The sign we most often think of when we suspect an issue with our gas line is the smell of sulfur or rotten eggs. This sign doesn’t always appear, though, so you have to look out for other signs of a potential problem with your gas line:

  • Staff, customers, or yourself have symptoms of physical illness, like nausea, lightheadedness, and dizziness, only while in the building.
  • A hissing sound coming from your gas pipes.
  • If one of your gas-powered fixtures is having issues, it may be an issue with that appliance’s connection to the line. If you have multiple unrelated appliances with gas-related problems, you probably have a much larger issue at hand.
  • Patches of dying or dead vegetation on your property.
  • Unexpected and high increases of your gas bill.

Regular gas line maintenance is crucial to keep your business running smoothly and to avoid unexpected and dangerous situations, like a gas leak inside your building.

How do I know if I have an issue with my sewer line?

There are multiple signs to look out for if you suspect your sewer line needs some kind of repair:

  • You have multiple clogged or slow drains.
  • There is a bad smell in your building, especially around plumbing fixtures.
  • There is a bad smell outside your building with no clear cause.
  • You have backups in your plumbing.
  • There are lush patches of greenery outside.

A plumber should be called out quickly to diagnose and repair the problem and make sure there’s no septic contamination going on. Sewage or wastewater that backs up in your drains, or which is leaking into the ground or into your potable water, is a serious health concern.

How do I know if I have an issue with my water line?

A problem with your water line might be harder to spot quickly without a huge sign, like a sudden loss of water pressure. Because of the size and complexity of your plumbing system, a small issue in the water line can quickly become a large, expensive problem. There are some signs to watch out for:

  • A higher water bill than normal without a change in usage
  • Patches of lush vegetation on your property
  • Puddles forming under appliances that use water
  • Puddles forming around your property, like in the street or parking lot
  • Sinkholes on your property
  • Signs of water damage on your drywall, or actively wet or dripping drywall

A broken water line can get expensive quickly. To avoid potentially severe water damage, you’ll need a plumber as quickly as possible.

How often should I have plumbing maintenance performed?

This will depend on what type of plumbing fixtures you have, their age, their use, and how heavily you use them. If you’re not sure and don’t know how to find out, feel free to give us a call. We’ll help you identify your maintenance needs based on the fixture in question even if you don’t choose our maintenance services so your business continues to function well.

What industrial plumbing issues are considered emergencies?

As in any type of plumbing, not every issue is an emergency. You definitely have an emergency on your hands if:

  • You can’t fix the issue at all or without a high risk of causing more damage.
  • The issue poses immediate danger or harm to your staff, the foundations of your building, and/or the environment.
  • The problem forces operations to stop, like if you have no hot water.
What is the difference between commercial plumbing and industrial plumbing?

Industrial plumbing is more of a subset of commercial plumbing than a totally separate category. In industrial plumbing, buildings are larger – often multiple stories and thousands of square feet – which means the plumbing is more complex than for a smaller commercial property. Industrial buildings may also be specialized for a particular trade and have plumbing needs based on that. Finally, because of its size and depending on its trade, an industrial building will often have different code and material grade requirements for its plumbing system than a regular business in order to handle the heavy usage it will receive.
