Do I Really Need a Sump Pump?

Monday, November 19th, 2018

sunny-techniciansThat depends on how much of a rush you get from taking risks, we suppose. If you ask us, however, it is always best to play it safe when it comes to your property and to your plumbing system. That is why we say that it is imperative to have a sump pump in Las Vegas. No, sump pumps are not just for those areas where heavy snowfall means rapidly melting snow or where tropical, seasonal storms are the norm.

Flooding can occur for a number of reasons, sometimes due to problems with your plumbing system itself. If a pipe bursts in your home, or if a there is an issue with the water main that results in flooding in your neighborhood, you are going to wish that you had prepared if you decided against the need for a sump pump. When you let The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas handle your sump pump services, you can count on protecting your home and your property in such situations.

Monday, November 5th, 2018

Sure, they might give the little ones some cause for concern,  particularly around bedtime, but for the most part it just becomes white noise. In many instances, this is totally fine. Houses tend to creak and settle over time. However, certain sounds really should not be ignored. This is the case with a running toilet. It doesn’t take that long for a toilet tank to fill.

Why Schedule Video Pipe Inspection?

Monday, October 8th, 2018

However, because of modern technology, there are better ways to go about doing such jobs than there were even a decade or two ago. That’s not much time in the long run.

Tips for Protecting Kitchen Plumbing

Monday, August 27th, 2018

sunny-plumber-vanWhile the bathroom may be the single room in home that is most closely associated with plumbing, the kitchen in those homes is at least a very close second place. Why? Well, the bathroom aside, the kitchen is certainly the area in your home where you have the most direct interaction with your plumbing system. There is the sink, of course, but there is also the garbage disposal, the dishwasher, and so on. With so much plumbing comes the risk of plumbing problems.

We certainly are not going to contend that there is a way in which to completely eliminate the risk of problems developing with your kitchen plumbing in Las Vegas. That being said, we can definitely give you some tips to help keep those problems at bay! While there is no way in which to completely avoid them, that doesn’t change the fact that many kitchen plumbing issues stem from problems that could have easily been avoided with a bit more diligence.

Using Natural Gas Safely

Monday, August 13th, 2018

logoWe may not need to run our heating systems all that much in this part of the country, certainly not the way that they have to run them in the Northeast, but that does not mean that we don’t have a  lot of use for natural gas around here. From outdoor fire pits and grills to water heaters and ovens/ranges, there are plenty of opportunities for making use of this outstanding resource. Of course, you need to make use of it safely.

This is not to say that natural gas is any more dangerous than other fuel sources, mind you. After all, any combustible fuel does carry with it an inherent amount of risk in its use. Working with professionals and using that fuel appropriately, however, will really help to mitigate any risks that there may be. Today, we have some tips that will help you to use natural gas safely. Remember to leave your gas piping services to the pros here at The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas.

No, Your Garbage Disposal Cannot Handle Everything!

Monday, July 30th, 2018

sunny-techniciansHmmm, there is a lot of stuff all mixed together on these serving platters. Oh well, I’m sure that the garbage disposal can handle it! 

Not so fast. Put down the platter and back out of the kitchen. Slowly.

Okay, that last bit was just for a bit of dramatic flair, but the first part is worth paying attention to. Never assume that your garbage disposal can handle everything that you can throw at it, provided that it is organic material. Why not? Because this simply is not true!

Garbage disposals have just one job to do, and that is to grind (not chop, but that’s a topic for another time) food waste up so that it can be disposed of through your plumbing system, rather than being put in the trash and taken out to the curb. However, it is important to remember that even the best garbage disposals do have their limitations.

The last thing that you want to do is to damage your garbage disposal or create plumbing problems by using the disposal incorrectly.
