Do I Really Need a Sump Pump?

Monday, 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.

Using Natural Gas Safely

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

logoHang on a second. Isn’t this supposed to be a plumbing blog? Not only is it supposed to be a plumbing blog, but it is one! (And, we think, a fine one at that.) While some homeowners don’t really think of it as being a plumbing issue, the gas line definitely falls into the jurisdiction of a plumber of choice—hopefully, The Sunny Plumber Tucson. In fact, there are specific laws regarding who can work on and install gas piping, and it takes a licensed plumber to do the job.

Today we want to remind our customers that, yes, natural gas is a truly great, reliable resource. We also want to remind them, however, that natural gas is still a combustible fuel. As is the case with any combustible material, natural gas can be dangerous if not handled properly. The good news is that scheduling your gas piping services with us means that those gas pipes will be in great working order. The bad news is that there are no guarantees in life, so we’ve got some tips to help keep you safe!

Is It Time for Repiping?

Monday, May 21st, 2018

sunny-plumberFor a lot of people, the idea of a “home improvement” project is more aesthetic than anything else. Maybe you want to revamp your deck, or paint/side your house to make it more visually appealing. Others blend both fashion and function. Putting up new shutters, repaving an ugly, cracked, or rutted driveway, for instance. But some of the most important home improvement jobs are the ones that offer no visual benefit. Repiping a home is certainly one prime example of this.

When you hire a professional plumber in Green Valley, AZ to repipe your house, it is entirely a matter of function. It is a matter of protecting the integrity of your plumbing system, so that you can count on the reliable delivery of potable water throughout your home.
