Why Premium Plumbing Services Are Worth It

Monday, February 22nd, 2021

The biggest criticism our business ever receives with a grain of truth is that we charge more for plumbing services than other companies. Do we charge too much for jobs like drain cleaning, water heater services, or drain repair? That depends, because plumbing services are relative to each other. While other people might offer cheaper prices, you may not be getting as much out of their service as you do from ours.

Hiring a plumber in Tucson, AZ isn’t just about getting the job done quickly. There are many amateurs in our area who offer plumbing at a cheap price, but they’re people who you’d never want in your home—let alone working on your pipes. Many aren’t background checked, drug tested, or even proficient in the tools they’re using! This is the secret behind our fair pricing: premium plumbing is, in fact, worth it in the end.

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.
