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.

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.

Protect the Anode Rod, Protect the Water Heater!

Monday, October 19th, 2020

sunny-plumberYou probably think about your sink, toilet, and shower more than you do your water heater, right? That’s understandable, considering the fact that you directly interact with, or at least see, those fixtures each and every day. Just because it’s understandable doesn’t mean it’s fair, though.

After all, where do you think that hot water you enjoy so much in the shower is coming from?

That’s right—your water heater in Tucson! Don’t take an out of sight, out of mind attitude toward your water heater. You need to take care of it so that it can take care of you. Fortunately, doing so is pretty simple. Tank water heaters require pretty little in the way of maintenance.

sunny-plumbersWhen 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.
