When you have a very busy schedule to accommodate, it is easy to let things slip through the cracks. Particularly in those instances when you make the concession that “good enough” is actually good enough. When it comes to your plumbing system, however, you deserve a lot more than that. Add to that the fact that ignoring warning signs of trouble will only lead to further problems, and it becomes very clear very fast just why this should be such a priority.
So, slow-moving drains may not seem like a major issue, but give it some time and they will. Scheduling prompt drain cleaning in Las Vegas with The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas will help you to keep the problem under control. Do you know what is even better than resolving a problem promptly, though? Avoiding it entirely in the first place! That’s why we’ll look at some of the usual suspects of clogged drains in today’s post. Once we’ve done so, you’ll know what to avoid.

That 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.

It doesn’t take very long for us to get used to strange sounds in our homes. 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.
If your toilet tank keeps running, running, and running, then you may need professional plumbing services to deal with the issue. It is also possible that a few moments of your own time can resolve the problem. Today, our Las Vegas bathroom plumbing pros are going to help you understand why your toilet may be running continually. We’ll also help you to understand when it’s time to call the pros! The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas is here for you.

There was a time when doing work of any kind on one’s plumbing system was really a pretty big undertaking. Don’t get us wrong, plumbing systems are as expansive and complex as ever—more so, even. And there are plenty of major jobs that any plumbing system may require. 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.
One of the best tools/services that we have to offer is video pipe inspection in Las Vegas, NV. You may be wondering why you’d ever want to take such a close look at your pipes. It’s not exactly a great photo opportunity, after all. Well, this is one service that is purely about function. Specifically, video camera pipe inspection equipment performs the function of allowing us to see within your pipes themselves! This is a huge benefit you’ll enjoy when working with The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas.

It’s just a pipe. There are not any mechanical components to degrade over time. And the thing is buried on my property, so it is not even as though it is exposed to the elements. So how the heck is it that a sewer line in Las Vegas, NV can get damaged, anyway? Shouldn’t it be safe down there, where the sun cannot even beat down on it and heat it up?
Sure—maybe in a perfect world. But this is not a perfect world, and the fact of the matter is that you can expect problems to develop with your sewer line at some point.
When they do, you really want to have the problem dealt with immediately. For what we think are pretty obvious reasons, a sewer line leak is really not something that you want to allow to fester in your home. The good news is that the professional plumbers here at The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas are never more than a phone call away!

On the scale of very exciting to “oh man, do I have to?”, replacing your water heater probably lands down toward the latter. Look, nobody is going to suggest that replacing your air conditioning system is the most exciting way in which to spend your hard-earned money. That being said, it is still something that you’ll have to do eventually. If and when you do, you want to be sure that you are working with skilled, experienced professionals that will get the job done right.
That’s why you want The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas to handle your water heater replacement in Las Vegas, NV.
However, you really shouldn’t wait until you have no hot water—or a basement full of it!—before you schedule your water heater replacement. Instead, contact the professional water heater technicians on our team if you find yourself in any of the situations below. Hot water may be a normal part of everyday life in this modern age, but that doesn’t mean it is a luxury you can afford to take for granted!

While 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.

We 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.

Hmmm, 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.
