What’s Clogging Your Drain?

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. Not every material that goes down your drain is the same, and some should always be kept as far away from the drain as possible. No homeowner is perfect in the way they treat their drain systems, but you can definitely take steps to reduce drain clogs and help your plumbing system last longer.

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.

5 Kitchen Plumbing Woes We Can Help With!

Monday, March 22nd, 2021

Kitchens are sometimes referred to as the “hearth” of the home. It’s where there’s warmth, fun, joy, and relaxation. Our lives are so intertwined with what we do in the kitchen, from preparing meals to sharing a glass of wine at the end of a long day, that it’s almost hard to imagine a home without this space. Unfortunately, for homeowners who have problems with their kitchen plumbing in Tucson, all of the warmth of this room can be sucked away very quickly.

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!
