3 Reasons You Need a Water Softener

Monday, 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.

sunny-plumber-doorwayWe really cannot stress this enough. Any leak in your plumbing system needs to be taken seriously. Is every leak technically an emergency? No, of course not.

Why Is My Water Bill So High?

Monday, June 1st, 2020

logoYou never want to experience sticker shock, whether after a nice meal or after purchasing a new vehicle that came in at a higher price than you expected. If there’s anything worse than that type of sticker shock, though, it’s one that just keeps coming! If you find yourself cringing each and every time your water bill arrives in the mail, then something is wrong. No, water isn’t going to come into your home for free if your getting it from a public supply.

Still, that does not mean that you should be willing to pay an excessive price tag for the water that you use. If your water bill is consistently too high, then there is almost certainly something wrong causing those high bills. This does not necessarily mean that you have a plumbing issue in need of repair, mind you. More on that below. However, it is definitely possible that you require professional plumbing repairs in Las Vegas

What Makes a Tankless Water Heater Such a Great Investment?

Monday, May 18th, 2020

sunny-techniciansWhen you think about the investments that you might make around your home, we’ll be the first to admit that some are more, shall we say, exciting than others. A brand new deck, new siding on the house to give it a much-needed facelift, etc. While these investments will definitely give an aesthetic upgrade to your home, however, you cannot overlook the importance of less obvious investments—such as that you could make in the water heater department.

Now, a new water heater may not earn the oohs and ahs that your new deck or siding project might. It really should, though. While it may not be as eye-catching a change as either of those other examples, it is a great way in which to save money over the years. Particularly when you go the tankless route. If you’re in the market for a new water heater in Las Vegas, and you’re not considering a tankless model, be sure to keep the following information in mind!

Monday, April 6th, 2020

sunny-plumber-doorwayWhen it comes to plumbing systems, there is a lot of misinformation and wrongly held beliefs out there. This is partly why it is so important that you work with trained, trustworthy professionals. They don’t come any more trustworthy than a Sunny Plumber! That’s the good news. The bad news is that, in order to keep people like you informed, we sometimes have to burst a bubble or two. In this case, it’s the belief that copper pipes last forever.
