3 Ways Sewer Lines Get Damaged

Monday, 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.

What to Keep Out of Your Garbage Disopsal

Monday, July 29th, 2019

sunny-techniciansDo you have a garbage disposal in your home? If not—what are you waiting for? While the garbage disposal may not be as essential a plumbing appliance as, say, your water heater or your washing machine, it does have many great benefits to offer. Fewer trips to the curb with garbage, quicker cleanup times, and just more convenience in general. If you think that you put just anything down your garbage disposal, however—think again! Some items aren’t appropriate.

sunny-techniciansWhen you have a very busy schedule to accommodate, it is easy to let things slip through the cracks.

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.

Clogged Drains? Here Are Some Common Culprits

Monday, January 1st, 2018

There  are quite a few plumbing problems that you could rightly call “emergencies.” The most common plumbing problems are not really those putting your entire property in immediate danger, though. Instead, they’re situations like dripping faucets, underperforming water heaters, and, yes, clogged drains. Clogged drains may actually be the most common type of problem that homeowners encounter with their plumbing systems, as a matter of fact. Homeowners allow them to fester longer than they should.

While clogged drains may not put your plumbing system at immediate risk, they can result in a number of serious issues if given the time to develop. Worse yet, many clogged drains are actually the result of simple user error. There is no way to completely avoid the risk of running into clogged drains in your home, of course. However, understanding some of the most common causes of the problem will hopefully help you to better understand how to avoid it to begin with.
