Tuesday, August 11th, 2020

sunny-plumbersYour home may be the biggest investment you’ll ever make in your life. It makes sense to do anything you can to protect that investment.

Garbage Disposals: 3 Ways You’re Doing It Wrong!

Monday, July 13th, 2020

sunny-plumberIf you are not using a garbage disposal in Tucson—why not? Garbage disposals are helpful. They’re convenient. They offer a number of benefits. They’re not 100% reliable, though. Nothing really is. And you know what? Your garbage disposal is going to be far less than 100% reliable if you’re not using it right. When used properly, garbage disposals are going to be largely problem-free. When used improperly, you’ll want to toss the disposal itself into the garbage!

No one misuses their garbage disposal on purpose, obviously. Just because you don’t mean to do so doesn’t mean that you’re not doing so, though. You simply may not realize what you’re doing. Don’t find out the hard way that you’ve been doing it wrong. Take the information in this post, and keep it in mind. That way, the chances of us visiting your home to fix your disposal are greatly reduced. Not that we don’t love seeing our customers, of course!

Take Common Bathroom Plumbing Issues Seriously!

Monday, June 1st, 2020

logoComplacency can get homeowners into serious trouble, particularly when it comes to their plumbing systems. A lot of times, homeowners are going to react swiftly only when faced with a true plumbing emergency. A toilet backing up into the house, a main water line break, a slab leak flooding the lower level, and so on. These dramatic situations only account for a fraction of all plumbing problems, though. There are a lot of common plumbing issues that homeowners simply deprioritize.

This is a major problem for a couple of different reasons. First of all, “common” doesn’t mean “not serious.” The common cold is, well, common, but that won’t stop it from grinding your productivity to a halt, right? You may be able to plow through your day when you have a cold, but it’s going to be rough. And if your plumbing system has a “minor” problem, the difference is it won’t just get over it without professional plumbing repairs in Tucson.

Monday, March 9th, 2020

sunny-plumbersWe understand that few things in life are completely black and white. And we understand that, while you may never attempt to replace your own sewer line or repipe your home, something like drain cleaning in Tucson doesn’t seem quite that daunting. However, when we say that you should leave your plumbing services to trained professionals, we really mean it—drain cleaning included! Sure, it may not be as big a risk as those other services, but it can still lead to trouble.

Mostly, it’s going to lead to ongoing trouble, because the chances of you doing an effective job of cleaning your drains for lasting results is slim. But guess what? Drain cleaning is just another of the outstanding plumbing services that we have to offer. So if your drains are not functioning the way that they should, call our number to schedule service with a professional plumber who you can trust today.

Monday, January 27th, 2020

logoFor most homeowners, a water heater is a tall, cylindrical appliance that is full of the hot water they need for showering, washing the dishes, doing the laundry, etc. If that is the end of the line when it comes to your awareness of available water heater systems, you’ve got some homework to do.
