Keep Plumbing Clogs to a Minimum

September 23rd, 2019

logoWe would be more than happy to share with you the one tip we know will prevent any and all clogs from developing in your home. If you want to know the truth, however, it’s that no amount of prevention can completely eliminate clogs.

That’s not to say that you should just put up with clogs developing regularly in your home. There’s a major difference between dealing with the occasional clog, and encountering clogs frequently in your home. We have some tips that will help you to keep clogs to a minimum. Remember, when you need plumbing services in Tucson, AZ, of any kind, the Sunny Plumbers on our team are the ones that you can trust to do the job right.

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.

When those materials are flushed down the toilet or drained from the tub, sink, dishwasher, washing machine, etc., they wind up heading away from your home through your sewer line. The sewer line on your property probably doesn’t get much attention from you, but trust us—it will demand your attention when something goes wrong. Today, we’ll take a look at signs and reasons why you may need a sewer line replacement in Benson, AZ.

Why Stop Storing Hot Water?

July 15th, 2019

sunny-plumbersWhat are these people talking about? I can’t really be expected to go without hot water in my home, can I?

That’s not what we’re suggesting. If you read that title again, we’re talking about no longer storing hot water in your home—not about eliminating it entirely. Those are very different scenarios.

If you’re confused by what we’ve said so far, don’t worry. Our Sunny Plumbers are the Tucson water heater pros you can trust to set you straight. We’re going to be talking about tankless water heaters today—what they are, how they work, and why you may choose to use one in your home. As always, you should keep in mind that no single water heater is right for everyone. You may just find that a tankless model is right for you, though. And, if you do, you’ll want a skilled,  experienced professional to install and service your system moving forward.

July 1st, 2019

And if you live in Tucson or the surrounding areas, then the right plumber is a Sunny Plumber!
