New Construction Plumbing
We work with you on the process of designing a plumbing system that meets all your needs and fits with the construction of your commercial building.
One of the most important parts of any commercial buildings is its plumbing system. Not only does this system include bathrooms that employees and visitors use, but it also includes the drainage that carries water away from the building. Though you may think that you can put off the plumbing until you finish building, our new construction plumbing services can help you design a plumbing system that works with that final building.

When you turn to us for help with new construction installation, we can help you design the perfect plumbing system that meets all your needs. We can work with the architectural drawings and plans that you have in hand, but we can also come right to the construction site and give you some feedback and advice.
Many clients also turn to us for help getting the plumbing drawings, plans and sketches that they need before going to the city or county for permits. Before you add a new plumbing system to your building, you must have the right permits in hand. With our drawings, you can easily get those permits.

24 Hour Drain Cleaning
We offer 24-hour commercial drain cleaning services, ensuring that your business stays up and running even when the unexpected happens.

What are the Common Causes of Drain Clogs?
Most of the time, drain clogs appear slowly over time. You might have subtle signs, like a patch of grass that is always greener or gurgling noises from your toilet. Tree roots are another problem that can cause you to begin to see signs of a drain clog slowly over time.
Many times, if a drain seems to suddenly have become clogged, it is probably that you have been ignoring the signs along the way. Having a regular inspection and drain cleaning by a professional can help prevent most of these problems from becoming an emergency.
The most common cause of a drain that seems to have clogged suddenly is a pipe that has collapsed. This can happen if tree roots are allowed to penetrate the pipe.
Another thing that can suddenly cause your drain to clog is accidentally flushing something down the drain that you should not. For instance, if your child decides to see what will happen if they flush their toy down the drain, it can cause serious problems. It does happen occasionally.

Natural Gas Piping Contractor
Natural gas lines provide a constant stream of natural gas that businesses use in a few different ways, running gas to the furnaces that provide heat.
Natural gas lines provide a constant stream of natural gas that businesses use in a few different ways. Those pipes run gas to the furnaces that provide heat for employees and customers or clients. The pipes also bring the necessary heat to water heaters, which then supply the building with an endless stream of hot water. Our team at CH Kruse Plumbing will coordinate with general contractors and business owners throughout Vancouver WA and Portland OR to ensure each project is successful.
Many businesses use natural gas lines: restaurants, retail shops, hospitals even schools. Whether it is a new building, or the current space is being renovated, our fully licensed experts will get your location connected to natural gas safely.
Gas Piping Installation
The most important things to consider when installing new gas piping include:
- Location of the furnace, water heater and other devices that use natural gas
- Overall size of the building
- Any regulations put in place by the city or the county
With new construction, many cities and counties require that building owners apply for permits before work begins. Those who own existing commercial buildings may need to acquire permits before making any significant changes to the gas lines in a building. With our help, those building owners can get advice and support when applying for permits.
Benefits of Natural Gas Lines
Powering hot water heaters and furnaces aren’t the only things that natural gas lines can do. New piping can provide a restaurant patio with heaters and lights that help customers see and stay warm as they dine. Natural gas provides generators with power when the power goes out too. Hospitals and other healthcare facilities often keep generators on hand for use during power outages.
Commercial building owners located in the Vancouver WA and Portland OR areas who need natural gas line installation and repairs can rely on the trusted professionals of Kruse Plumbing today.
Commercial Water Heater
Water heater technology keeps on getting better with every year, and there are more types of commercial water heaters available than ever.
A new water heater can really improve the existing plumbing system in your commercial building. All commercial water heaters will need to be replaced eventually, and if you’re considering an upgrade, there are a number of factors to consider.
Installation Process for Commercial Water Heaters
Water heater technology keeps on getting better and better, and there are more types of water heaters available than ever. The installation process for a commercial water heater really depends on a few factors:
- The existing plumbing and wiring
- The regulations in your location
- The type of business within the building
- The age of the building
A licensed plumber should always be consulted in a unique space, a space with energy-restrictions, or an older commercial building. A plumber also needs to be consulted to make sure building regulations and codes are upheld before, during, and after commercial water heater installation.
Types of Water Heaters
Here are some of the types of water heater to consider:
- Electric: If there’s low demand for hot water, an electric water heater can be a good option. Electric heaters lose less energy storing water than gas heaters, and they can be cheaper than gas–but only if the hot-water demand is low.
- Gas: A faster method of heating water than electric, gas water heaters can be a big step up if you have heavy demand for hot water.
- Tankless: Also known as “instant”, these water heaters only provide hot water when it’s demanded. This can save a lot of energy (and money!) over the lifetime of the water heater. Tankless water heaters are becoming more and more popular.
- Energy Efficient: This category covers a wide range of water heaters, including gas, electric, and tankless. “Energy Efficient” simply means the water heater uses less energy, but it is not specific to a type of energy.
Not all of these types will work within a commercial building, and the existing plumbing, wiring, and pipes really need to be considered carefully when choosing a new water heater. Building codes and regulations will also determine the size, type, and placement of a commercial water heater.
Benefits of Professional Water Heater Installation
A licensed and experienced plumber can install the commercial water heater correctly and effectively, making sure your supporting plumbing system is as efficient as possible. A plumber should always work with you to determine the strengths and weaknesses of your existing commercial plumbing, the water heater you’ve chosen, and any potential future additions to the space.
Does your water heater need to be replaced, or just repaired? An expert plumber can help you decide on the best option, inspecting the existing water heater, wiring, pipes, and commercial space to evaluate the needs of your business. Sometimes repairing is a great idea, but sometimes repairing a water heater (instead of replacing it) can set your commercial building up for disaster.
Don’t hire just anybody to install or repair your water heater. Trust the plumbing experts at Kruse. We’ll help you decide on the perfect water heater for your commercial building, making sure everything is installed and functioning correctly. If your existing water heater or piping needs to be repaired, we can do that too! Call us today to discuss your commercial water heater installation or repair!
