The truth is that learning about what might cause a drain clog can be the first step toward avoiding clogs in the future!

Monday, April 5th, 2021

We get asked this question a lot as the go-to local plumber in Tucson. It’s not a bad question. In fact, it gets at something we often like to tell homeowners as a PSA.

We won’t beat around the bush. If you’re here because you need help removing a clog from your plumbing system, then you should call us. However, if you’re unsure as to the state of your drains, why you’ve got clogs, or you want more information about how these types of problems form, then you’re in the right place.

Why Clean Drains Are So Important

Monday, January 25th, 2021

sunny-plumberIt can be tough to keep up with the cleaning around the house. And there are always those areas that never quite seem to get clean, do they? Well, we’ve got bad news for you. Not only is there one place that you don’t clean, there’s a place that you cannot effectively clean.

We’re talking about the inside of your drains.

Now, we know what you’re thinking. They don’t need to be cleaned … they’re not clogged! And when they’re clogged I’ll just pour some

Here’s why clean drains are important, and why professional drain cleaning in Tucson is the way to go about getting them.

Why DIY Drain Cleaning Doesn’t Work

Monday, March 9th, 2020

sunny-plumbersWe understand that few things in life are completely black and white.

Drain Clogs: User Error Is a Common Contributing Factor

Monday, October 22nd, 2018

sunny-plumbersYou cannot avoid the occasional clogged drain. If you use your drains—and we’re guessing that you do, as they’re not exactly ornamental!—then they are going to clog up from time to time. That is to be expected.

A little bit of care can go a long way.

When Are Drain and Sewer Cleanings Necessary?

Monday, August 27th, 2018

logoWhen you see a faucet dripping every time you come into the bathroom or the kitchen, it is pretty clear that this faucet needs repairs, right? What about other parts of your plumbing system that may require service, though? Particularly those parts of the system that you cannot see, and which you don’t really interact with directly? There’s just no way of knowing what kind of shape they’re in, right? So you just wait until something goes wrong before scheduling service.

That’s not the way to handle such components, though, and the logic behind that approach is deeply flawed. Just because you cannot really see your drain and/or sewer lines, after all, doesn’t mean that you cannot catch problems with them early on. Let’s go back to the leaking faucet for a simple example. Even if you cannot see the faucet because it’s dark or you’re in the next room, you can hear the dripping, right? Get all of your senses involved, and you’ll be able to tell if you need drain and/or sewer cleaning in Vail, AZ.
