Fall is a time when we often recommend people have drain cleaning done to help prepare for a season when their kitchen plumbing in Tucson, AZ undergoes the most stress. One plumbing appliance in the kitchen that needs special attention is the kitchen sink garbage disposal, a motor-powered device that can make or break a kitchen during the end of the year.
We’ve previously offered advice about how to best manage your disposal so it gives you many years of steady, trouble-free work. Today, we’re going to look at the point when “disposal management” becomes “disposal replacement.”

Okay, so not all of these are troubling in the grand scheme of things. In fact, some of them are decidedly good news.

When you think about cleaning your home, we’re willing to bet that you’re not thinking about cleaning your pipes, right? Of course not. And when we talk about cleaning pipes, we’re not talking about dusting or polishing the exterior surface of the pipe. No, we’re talking about the interior of pipes. And, to be frank, we’re not just talking about cleaning pipes.
We’re talking about scouring them.
Scour jet service in Tucson, AZ, is one of the great plumbing services that too few homeowners take advantage of. You may not need your pipes scoured regularly, of course. But when problems related to buildup in pipes develop, there is really nothing better than scour jetting for getting the problem resolved. You want to skip the liquid drain cleaners when things start to slow down.

Your 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. And, even if you have great home insurance, preventing damage to your home is a must. If you don’t have a sump pump in Tucson, AZ, then you may have a major blindspot in your home protection.
When people think of sump pumps, they don’t always think of them being used in as arid a climate as ours. While it’s true that your sump pump may not be in regular operation, that’s true of any insurance policy. It’s there when you need it. We hope you don’t need to rely on your auto policy daily!

If 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!

Everyone loves a good deal, right? Well, that is precisely why some homeowners don’t really give tankless water heaters in Tucson much thought. The fact of the matter is that tankless water heaters cost more than tank water heaters. However, you can’t let that sticker price make the decision for you. Why not? Because investing more in your water heater at the time of purchase can save you money in the long run.
A tankless water heater is a great investment to make. Over time, you are going to wind up saving money. That’s called a return on investment. Today, we are going to look at some of the specific ways in which a tankless water heater can save you money over time. Remember to schedule your tankless water heater installation with our Sunny Plumbers if you decide that going tankless is right for you. Our plumbers always do it right!

In fact, we hope that you never need to see your sewer line, because if you do it usually means that something has gone wrong.

What types of problems?
Well, that is the focus of today’s post. A little bit of knowledge can go a long way. There are certainly some steps you can take to help mitigate the risk of sewer line problems on your property. Knowing what causes such problems may also help you to be more aware of those problems and to act more quickly when they do develop.

Complacency 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.
