Why Stop Storing Hot Water?

Monday, July 15th, 2019

sunny-plumbersWhat are these people talking about? I can’t really be expected to go without hot water in my home, can I?

That’s not what we’re suggesting. If you read that title again, we’re talking about no longer storing hot water in your home—not about eliminating it entirely. Those are very different scenarios.

If you’re confused by what we’ve said so far, don’t worry. Our Sunny Plumbers are the Tucson water heater pros you can trust to set you straight. We’re going to be talking about tankless water heaters today—what they are, how they work, and why you may choose to use one in your home. As always, you should keep in mind that no single water heater is right for everyone. You may just find that a tankless model is right for you, though. And, if you do, you’ll want a skilled,  experienced professional to install and service your system moving forward.

Why Choose a Whole-House Water Treatment System?

Monday, July 1st, 2019

logoJudging by the commercials that you might see on TV and the outlandish claims made in the advertisement of bottled water, you may think that the only way to enjoy pure, refreshing water is to buy it by the case. That’s not even remotely true. Sure, the water coming out of your taps right now may not taste great, but it has potential! And a stockpile of bottled water is not going to help your water reach its maximum potential.

But the right water treatment system in Tucson, AZ, can do just that. More specifically, the right water treatment system installed and serviced by the right plumbers. And if you live in Tucson or the surrounding areas, then the right plumber is a Sunny Plumber!

Nothing Lasts Forever (Not Even Water Heaters!)

Monday, June 17th, 2019

sunny-plumberImagine this—you’ve come into some money. Not millions of dollars or anything, but a substantial chunk of change nonetheless. Enough to put some away in the bank, maybe pay down the credit card a bit. You with us? Okay, now let’s say you decide to keep enough out of the bank to treat yourself and the family a bit. What do you spend it on?

If you said a new water heater, then—well, actually, we’re a bit surprised. No one understands the importance of a great water heater better than us Sunny Plumbers, but even we’ll admit that they’re not the most exciting things in the world.

Exciting or not, you do need a reliable water heater in your home. And regardless of what make or model you use, you’re going to have to replace your water heater eventually. There is no getting around that. But when do you replace your water heater in Tucson? When it’s broken down entirely? Hopefully before then, so here are some factors to consider.

Water Heater FAQ: What Is Standby Energy Loss?

Monday, June 3rd, 2019

sunny-plumbersYour water heater. An unsung hero in your home. There it sits, quietly (we hope) providing you with the hot water that you need for bathing, washing the dishes, doing your laundry, etc. Little did you know that this appliance you rely on and trust so much may, in fact, be:

An efficiency drain!

Okay, so that’s a bit dramatic. But standby energy loss is something that every tank water heater encounters. The amount of standby energy loss that your system suffers will vary depending upon a number of factors, and there are some ways in which to reduce it, but it’s something that you should be aware of.

Bathroom Plumbing Issues That You May Encounter

Monday, April 8th, 2019

sunny-plumbersLet’s play a quick word association game: plumbing! What did you think of? Bathroom? Was it bathroom?

Let’s just say that it was bathroom.

Whether or not that was actually the case, there is no denying that the bathroom is a pretty major focal point in terms of the plumbing in your home. Really only the kitchen can come close, with its sink, garbage disposal, and dishwasher. But the bathroom, with its own sink, plus the toilet and the bathtub and/or shower, is really the big one.

That is precisely why problems with your bathroom plumbing in Tucson are so serious.

The key to dealing with bathroom problems is not to avoid them entirely. Yes, that would be great. But it’s not really possible. At some point, you are going to encounter plumbing problems of some kind in your bathroom. And, when you do, you want to be certain that you’re dealing with them promptly. That is why we’re giving you a few common ones to keep in mind, so that you can get a Sunny Plumber on the case ASAP!

Why Scour Your Pipes?

Monday, January 14th, 2019

sunny-plumbersThere are different levels of cleaning, as you probably know from telling your family to do a better job of it (or maybe you’re the one who needs the extra motivation!). In the case of pipes, there is clearing. Then there is cleaning. If you ask us, however, scouring is the way to go. There are a lot of individuals out there that may think they can clean their pipes with harsh chemicals, and there are a lot of companies willing to charge you for drain cleaning services.

The Sunny Plumber Tucson, though? We scour them.

No, this is not just us tooting our own horns. When we say that our jet scour service in Tucson is much more comprehensive than the drain cleanings that other methods allow for, we mean it.

Common Causes of High Water Bills

Monday, December 31st, 2018

logoWater may be an abundant resource on this planet, but that doesn’t mean it comes for free when using it around the house—though we admit, that would be nice. If you get your water from a municipal supply, then you pay the municipality for it. That is just a fact. Want to know another fact? There is no reason why you should be overpaying for the water you use throughout your home. And no, we’re not talking about peak usage time charges, either.

Too many homeowners become accustomed to paying too much for the water that they use in their homes. If you stop and think about it, then realize that your water costs have been on the rise, let us know. It is possible that there is something going on with your plumbing system that can account for such discrepancies. If you’re certain that your rates have not changed and that you are not using any more water than usual, contact a member of our team. It may be time for plumbing repairs in Tucson, AZ.

Do I Really Need a Sump Pump?

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

sunny-plumbersWell, that is really a subjective question. Do you really need to go to the doctor for your annual checkups? Do you really need to get the oil in your car changed as suggested? There are no laws dictating that you do such things—but you probably do because you know that they really are in your best interest. The same is true of a sump pump. You are not going to have your home repossessed for negligence if you don’t have one in place.

But the potential problems that you may run into may leave you wishing that your home was no longer your problem! The sump pump serves one function and one function only, and that is to protect your home in the instance of flooding. This is not only important in areas where heavy rains or rapid snowmelt are common. Anything, including plumbing leaks, could necessitate the type of protection that only a sump pump in Tucson has to offer.
