The Slow Drain: Is It Really a Big Deal?

Monday, September 6th, 2021

sunny-plumber-doorwayNobody wants clogged drains in their house. A clogged sink or shower drain means you can’t use that fixture until the problem is resolved. Sometimes all it takes is the right type of plunger and a bit of effort to clear a clog. Other times you’ll need the assistance of our professionals for drain cleaning in Paradise, NV

But what about the “half-clog” in a drain—a drain that’s still drawing away water, but not as fast as usual? When you have a slow drain in your house, do you feel the same urgency to have it fixed the way you would a clog? Probably not. In our experience as plumbers, we’ve found people are willing to put up with a slow drain as a minor irritation and not something that needs fast action to correct.

What Plumbing Jobs MUST Have a Professional Plumber?

Monday, May 3rd, 2021

sunny-plumber-doorwayWe understand that people want to find ways to handle household maintenance and repair jobs themselves, if possible. There’s nothing wrong with having a DIY work ethic—as long as you know the limits of what you and the tools you have can do. Doing repairs to the porch or fixing gutters is much different than handling electrical work. Or plumbing. 

Unfortunately, plumbing is a field where many people assume that DIY work can handle most jobs. A set of wrenches and few online videos, and there’s nothing a homeowner can’t fix with their plumbing. It’s not true, however. Except for several basic tasks, such as putting in new aerators for faucets, most plumbing services require a licensed plumber. Below we’re going to look at several plumbing jobs that you absolutely must call a professional plumber in Las Vegas, NV to handle.

Why Professional Drain Cleaning Is Your Best Bet

Monday, November 2nd, 2020

sunny-plumbersThere are certain plumbing problems that some homeowners get lucky and never have to face. We obviously don’t really worry about frozen pipes bursting around here in general.

Clogs, on the other hand? Yeah. You’re gonna face some clogs.

You can be the most careful plumbing system user of all time, and still run into the occasional clog. While some clogs can be pretty effectively cleared by homeowners, professional drain cleaning is still never a bad idea.

Drain Clogs: Some Truths to Consider

Monday, May 4th, 2020

sunny-plumber-doorwayThere is no getting around how inconvenient plumbing problems of all shapes and sizes are. You rely on your plumbing system for so much, every day, throughout the entire day. Getting ready for work, cooking meals, washing dirty clothes, cleaning up at the end of the day. Your plumbing system is truly integral to so many different parts of your life. With that in mind, let’s reassess our opening statement. Yes, plumbing problems are inconvenient. But that’s to say the least!

Plumbing problems can really bring your daily routine grind to a halt. And once that happens, it can be tough to get things going again. And this is when it becomes really messy. Why?

I can buy a drain snake. And so it begins. And headaches follow.
