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.

3 Reasons Scour Jetting Is the Way to Clean Pipes

Monday, August 24th, 2020

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. And, to be frank, we’re not just talking about cleaning pipes.

We’re talking about scouring them.

Scour jet service in Tucson,  AZ, is one of the great plumbing services that too few homeowners take advantage of. You may not need your pipes scoured regularly, of course. But when problems related to buildup in pipes develop, there is really nothing better than scour jetting for getting the problem resolved. You want to skip the liquid drain cleaners when things start to slow down.

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!
