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.

New Water Heater? Skip the Tank!

Monday, November 5th, 2018

sunny-plumbersIt doesn’t matter if you are on a pretty strict budget or if you have disposable income to spare. Replacing a water heater is nobody’s idea of a good, fun way to spend money. That doesn’t mean it’s not a necessary expense, though. Every water heater, regardless of make, model, and maintenance practices, has a limited lifespan. You’re going to need to replace yours eventually. When you do, you should think long and hard about what type of water heater you’ll choose as a replacement.

For many homeowners, the term water heater means one thing: a tank water heater. If the time has come for a water heater replacement in Tucson, though, or if you need a new water heater installed in a new home, you may want to think outside of the tank. They’re great systems, of course. But tankless water heaters also have some benefits to offer that tank models cannot really match. The Sunny Plumber Tucson has some tips about why you may want to skip the tank.
