How Do I Know if My Water Line Is in Trouble?

Monday, April 9th, 2018

 

sunny-plumber-vanIn theory, your plumbing system is pretty simple, right? The supply side brings water into your home, you use that water at the various fixtures and appliances throughout your home, and the drainage system takes it away in a very hygienic and convenient manner. While that process is simple to understand, you have to keep in mind that even seemingly simple systems will encounter operational problems from time to time.

One of the biggest problems that you may encounter with your plumbing system is a damaged water line. Your water line is buried on your property, of course, so you may be wondering how it is that you can recognize signs of trouble with this pipe to begin with. The sooner that any problems with your plumbing system are resolved, the better.

Are Tankless Water Heaters Worth the Investment?

Monday, March 26th, 2018

logoWhen it comes to investing in any new piece of equipment for your home, be it a single appliance or a whole new comfort system, one of the very first things that you’ll take into consideration is the price tag. It is very important that you have a strong concept of just how much money you have to spend on such investments, so developing a strict budget is definitely a step worth taking. That being said, you should also keep in mind costs–and savings–that you may encounter beyond that initial price tag.

Take the tankless water heater, for example. Yes, one of the first things that you’ll notice when researching your water heater options is the fact that tankless systems are indeed more expensive than tank models–considerably more, in fact. That does not mean that a tankless water heater is not worth your consideration, though. In fact, there are many benefits that make the tankless water heater well worth that initial investment. Read on, and remember to schedule your water heater services in Las Vegas with The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas.

Hire a Professional for Sump Pump Services

Monday, January 29th, 2018

flooded-houseThere are a few plumbing tasks that you can handle on your own. Plunging the toilet, for instance, or, if you’re so inclined, replacing the flapper at the bottom of the tank if it is degraded and causing the toilet to run continually. Beyond these pretty basic steps, though, plumber services are best left to a professional plumber in Las Vegas, NV.

This is certainly true when designing, installing, or repairing a plumbing system at large. It is also true when incorporating new components into an existing system, though.

If you are ready to have a sump pump installed in your home, or if you need your sump pump repaired or just inspected for proper operating conditions, we are the professionals to call. While we don’t have to deal with rapid snowmelt or very frequent heavy rainfalls, there are definitely plenty of opportunities for the sump pump to save your hide—including those in which your plumbing system itself is the cause of the water event in your home.
