October 21st, 2019

sunny-plumbersWe wrote “subpar” deliberately in the title to this post—not “bad.” Why? Because you shouldn’t wait for your water quality to be flat out “bad” before you get around to doing something about it! You deserve water of a high quality in your home and, frankly, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to enjoy that. Certainly not when our Sunny Plumbers are just a phone call away. Let us help you boost your water quality.

Before you can do so, of course, you need to recognize that your water quality is subpar or on the decline to begin with. This can be tricky, as subpar water quality is not always immediately obvious. In some cases, it will clearly be in need of improvement.

sunny-plumbersFor a plumbing fixture that plays such an important role in our lives each and every day, it seems that a lot of people are all too happy to ignore signs of trouble with their toilets.

Do I Need a New Sewer Line?

July 29th, 2019

sunny-plumbersThere are a lot of different components in your residential plumbing system. There are the fixtures that you have a lot of direct interaction with. These are your sinks, shower, toilet, etc. Then there are the pipes in your home that carry water to all of those fixtures and to the appliances that use water, such as your water heater, your washing machine, and the dishwasher. Then there is the system of drains responsible for removing waste and wastewater from your home.
