Unless you are a plumber, it’s pretty likely that you don’t know too much about your plumbing system. But why would you anyway? Until water starts leaking out from a wall or the toilet floods the bathroom, many people don’t have any reason to think about their plumbing! 

When living in a condo, if a plumbing pipe has a clog or a leak, it is a struggle to determine who pays for the repair. Condo plumbing systems are typically split up into tenant and public-owned pipes. In the most usual situation, the pipes inside and directly outside the unit are the responsibility of the tenant. This can get complicated as multiple units may share plumbing pipes, so it’s important to do your part in preventing damage. 

In this blog, we will explain all the basics of your condo’s plumbing, and show you what to do to be a good neighbor! In need of a plumber at your complex? Give John the Plumber a call today at (954) 781-4823 for all your plumbing needs! 

The Basics of Condo Plumbing 

Every plumbing system uses potable water pipes. These pipes are pressurized and are used to transport clean water from the city to your condo, home, apartment, etc. They are also used in the draining system, which transports your used water back to the city’s water treatment plant. These two piping systems are entirely separate to ensure your clean water never gets compromised with dirty water. 

Most Common Condo Plumbing Complications 

Some plumbing issues are more common than others. As we explained, the location of the issue determines who is responsible. Even though the piping system in the building is shared, most condos have the mapping which shows who is responsible for specific pipes. 

Here are a few of the most common plumbing complications in condos:
