How a Water Softener Can Benefit You

Monday, November 4th, 2019

sunny-plumber-doorwayFor a lot of homeowners, the phrase “plumbing problems” will conjure up images of leaking pipes, overflowing toilets, and clogged drains. And that’s totally reasonable, because all of those are indeed plumbing problems that you most likely will encounter at some point. However, here’s the thing—not all plumbing problems are going to be quite so obvious. In fact, you may well have a plumbing problem in your home right now that you’re not currently aware of. You may have hard water!

Now, hard water is not exactly a problem that is going to have an immediate impact on you or your plumbing system. Does that mean that you don’t need to prioritize the resolution of this issue, though? Of course not. Because, eventually, the consequences of hard water will come into stark relief. The good news is that we install and service whole-house water softeners in Las Vegas, so you need only call our Sunny Plumbers to have the problem resolved completely!

sunny-plumber-doorwayWhen some people think of plumbing problems, they think only of the big ones. Ruptured sewer lines, slab leaks, flooded bathrooms, etc. While plumbing emergencies are not uncommon—and they cannot be ignored!—this does not change the fact that they’re not the most common issues that homeowners face.

Our Sunny Plumbers know from firsthand experience just how much trouble can be caused by manageable problems that went unmanaged and became, well, unmanageable. Keep the following information in mind, and remember that only professional plumbers in Las Vegas should be allowed to service plumbing systems. This is no time for testing DIY skills.

When to Worry About Your Sewer Line

Monday, June 3rd, 2019

sunny-techniciansIf we were to ask you what your major focus on your home is right now, you might say replacing an old air conditioner, having the roof redone, or maybe revitalizing things with a fresh coat of paint.

What you probably wouldn’t say is “my sewer line’s condition.”

While we hope that this is due to the fact that you’ve had any issues with your sewer line addressed already, the more likely scenario is simply that your sewer line is not really on your radar. And that’s too bad, because a damaged, leaky sewer line is actually a very serious problem.

It’s also one that’s not exactly visible to the naked eye. So what’s a homeowner to do? Well, reading the following blog post is a great start, and scheduling your sewer line services in Las Vegas with our Sunny Plumbers is the right next move.

When you start to see the big picture of precisely what a main water line leak in Las Vegas can mean for you, though, you’ll see why immediate service is the right choice.
