Don’t Assume Your Water Line Is Fine!

February 11th, 2019

sunny-plumberIf ever there were an old adage that you do not want to apply to the way in which you deal with your plumbing system and any problems that it may encounter, it is sure this: out of sight, out of mind. Why is that?  Because so much of your plumbing system is out of sight, that’s why! Adopting that kind of attitude can lead to huge oversights in terms of your plumbing system, not the least of which may relate to your main water line.

Remember, all of the water that comes into your home and that you use to bathe, cook, and clean, arrives through this pipe. This out of sight pipe. Just because you cannot see it, just because you may not have visual confirmation that there are indeed problems brewing, does not mean you can afford to overlook what you can’t see. The “good” news here—and that term is relative in this context—is that there are plenty of signs that your water line in Marana, AZ, is in trouble.

Pipe Problems: We Don’t Guess, We Inspect!

January 28th, 2019

sunny-plumbersWhile there are a lot of different problems that you may encounter with your residential plumbing system, there are certain areas in which you can expect some repeat offenses. Because the pipe is the cornerstone of any plumbing system, you have to expect that pipe problems will be a common issue in terms of plumbing problems.

Why Scour Your Pipes?

January 14th, 2019

sunny-plumbersThere are different levels of cleaning, as you probably know from telling your family to do a better job of it (or maybe you’re the one who needs the extra motivation!). In the case of pipes, there is clearing. Then there is cleaning. If you ask us, however, scouring is the way to go. There are a lot of individuals out there that may think they can clean their pipes with harsh chemicals, and there are a lot of companies willing to charge you for drain cleaning services.

The Sunny Plumber Tucson, though? We scour them.

No, this is not just us tooting our own horns. When we say that our jet scour service in Tucson is much more comprehensive than the drain cleanings that other methods allow for, we mean it.

Common Causes of High Water Bills

December 31st, 2018

logoWater may be an abundant resource on this planet, but that doesn’t mean it comes for free when using it around the house—though we admit, that would be nice. If you get your water from a municipal supply, then you pay the municipality for it. That is just a fact. Want to know another fact? There is no reason why you should be overpaying for the water you use throughout your home. And no, we’re not talking about peak usage time charges, either.

Too many homeowners become accustomed to paying too much for the water that they use in their homes. If you stop and think about it, then realize that your water costs have been on the rise, let us know. It is possible that there is something going on with your plumbing system that can account for such discrepancies. If you’re certain that your rates have not changed and that you are not using any more water than usual, contact a member of our team. It may be time for plumbing repairs in Tucson, AZ.

Do I Really Need a Sump Pump?

December 3rd, 2018

sunny-plumbersWell, that is really a subjective question. Do you really need to go to the doctor for your annual checkups? Do you really need to get the oil in your car changed as suggested? There are no laws dictating that you do such things—but you probably do because you know that they really are in your best interest. The same is true of a sump pump. You are not going to have your home repossessed for negligence if you don’t have one in place.

But the potential problems that you may run into may leave you wishing that your home was no longer your problem! The sump pump serves one function and one function only, and that is to protect your home in the instance of flooding. This is not only important in areas where heavy rains or rapid snowmelt are common. Anything, including plumbing leaks, could necessitate the type of protection that only a sump pump in Tucson has to offer.

New Water Heater? Skip the Tank!

November 5th, 2018

sunny-plumbersIt doesn’t matter if you are on a pretty strict budget or if you have disposable income to spare. Replacing a water heater is nobody’s idea of a good, fun way to spend money. That doesn’t mean it’s not a necessary expense, though. Every water heater, regardless of make, model, and maintenance practices, has a limited lifespan. You’re going to need to replace yours eventually. When you do, you should think long and hard about what type of water heater you’ll choose as a replacement.

For many homeowners, the term water heater means one thing: a tank water heater. If the time has come for a water heater replacement in Tucson, though, or if you need a new water heater installed in a new home, you may want to think outside of the tank. They’re great systems, of course. But tankless water heaters also have some benefits to offer that tank models cannot really match. The Sunny Plumber Tucson has some tips about why you may want to skip the tank.
