3 Ways Sewer Lines Get Damaged

July 13th, 2020

There are plenty of parts in your plumbing system that you see and touch daily. Your toilet. Your kitchen faucets. Your shower.

Your sewer line doesn’t make this list, though.

Does that make your sewer line any less important than those other plumbing fixtures and appliances?  No, of course not. In a way, it does make it more vulnerable, though.

A sewer line is really just a pipe. But even something as simple as a pipe can run into problems. There’s no engine, and there are no moving parts. There is still a lot that can go wrong.

3 Reasons You Need a Water Softener

June 29th, 2020

sunny-techniciansYou want to believe that the water coming from your faucets is of a high quality. How do you know that this is the case, though? Have you had your water tested? If not, that’s an option to consider. However, not all problems require testing to be diagnosed. Take hard water, for example. Hard water is a very common problem. It’s also a problem that’s very commonly ignored. That’s unfortunate, because our plumbers can help you to resolve the problem.

The solution is a whole-house water softener. Our Las Vegas water quality experts will make sure that your water softener is the right fit for your home. When you use a whole-house system, you don’t even have to think about what you’re doing. The water is softened as it enters the system, and you just add more softening salt to the brine tank as needed. More on that below. Just remember that you need a professional plumber to install it.
