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!

Monday, June 29th, 2020

sunny-plumbersEveryone loves a good deal, right? Well, that is precisely why some homeowners don’t really give tankless water heaters in Tucson much thought.

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, May 4th, 2020

sunny-plumbersIf you think that you only need to schedule prompt plumbing services when an emergency develops,  think again. If you ask us, pretty much any plumbing problem should be resolved in as timely a manner as possible. Remember, even “minor” plumbing problems can cause serious trouble when given the opportunity. All that being said, there are certain situations that are definitely, rightly called emergencies. And sometimes homeowners have trouble making that designation.

Today, we are going to help to contextualize for you what actually constitutes a “plumbing emergency.” It’s not always a cut-and-dry situation. In fact, sometimes it’s a pretty wet one! Get it? Anyway, the last thing that we want is for a homeowner to hesitate designating their problem a true emergency, only to realize shortly down the road that they really ought to have taken immediate action. So read on, and remember that we’re the emergency plumbers in Tucson to trust with your emergency service needs.
