Plumbing Shop

SJSU Art Foundry

The Plumbing Shop is responsible for maintaining the entire water system on campus.

The Plumbing Shop is in charge of maintaining and repairing the main water line and reclaimed water system lines and valves, as well as maintaining the backflow prevention equipment. This crew assists outside contractors when hook-ups to main water, gas or sewer lines are involved, and reviews plans to ensure any underground work does not adversely affect these lines.

The shop also does rough-in plumbing work, sets fixtures and trim, repairs flush valves and leaking traps, and installs and repairs gas lines.

This shop also responds to calls regarding leaking faucets, broken pipes and plugged drain lines.
