Water Heater Replacement: Is It Time?

Monday, July 1st, 2019

logoWe sometimes joke about how a water heater isn’t the most exciting of purchases and how you’d probably rather invest in something a bit more flashy and fun. We always follow that up by reiterating the fact that your water heater, exciting or not, is essential. That means that an eventual replacement is a must—you are not likely to decide that you can actually go without one in your home. But when is the right time to commit?

That’s the question our Sunny Plumbers are addressing in today’s post. We take your 100% satisfaction with your water heater seriously, and that 100% satisfaction is just what we aim for—and achieve!—when we replace water heaters for our valued clients throughout the area. So keep the following information in mind, reach out if you have any questions, and be sure to schedule your water heater replacement in Las Vegas with a member of our team.

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.

logoWe know that, for some of you, the idea of a leak in a main water line is obviously a serious problem.

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.

Monday, April 22nd, 2019

sunny-plumber-vanThere are a few misconceptions that some homeowners share when it comes to their plumbing systems and the water that they deliver throughout their homes.

We’re going to dispel both of these beliefs and misconceptions in today’s blog post.

First of all, there is almost always room for improvement when it comes to the water in almost all homes. Secondly, any problems with your water quality, no matter how “minor” you may think they are, are serious and call for professional attention. Don’t put up with subpar water quality any longer. We have some tips to help you spot the signs of poor water quality in your home, and we’re here to help you understand your options for improving that water quality, too.

Monday, April 8th, 2019

sunny-techniciansBuying a new water heater is not going to be as exciting as, say, buying a new car or finally spending your money on that family vacation that you’ve been dreaming of. That doesn’t mean that there’s nothing exciting about it, though! In fact,  one of the most exciting parts of investing in a new water heater is the opportunity that it provides you for some serious savings. That may come as a surprise, but remember: you’ve got to spend money to save money sometimes!

Troubleshooting Your Garbage Disposal

Monday, January 14th, 2019

logoAs far as major plumbing jobs go, installing a garbage disposal is a pretty simple undertaking. Just because it is not a “major” job does not mean that you should not schedule this service with a trained professional, though, so be sure to let The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas know if you’re ready to have one installed. That being said, there are a few ways in which you may want to troubleshoot your garbage disposal in Las Vegas—and a few to avoid entirely!

Let a member of our team know if you have any further questions or need to schedule service.

I Need an Anode Rod? What’s an Anode Rod?

Monday, December 17th, 2018

logoSome systems and appliances in your home are going to get a lot of your attention. We live in a very hot area for most of the year, for instance, so your AC is hopefully very well-maintained. You change your air filter regularly, or at least you should. Other appliances that are just as important, however, may not get quite the same level of attention. This is commonly the case with water heaters in Las Vegas. And it’s a big problem.

If you had your water heater installed and you don’t really think about it at all anymore, then you may really be rolling the dice in terms of your anode rod and its overall condition. If you’re asking yourself what an anode rod even is, then it is probably time to take a step back and,  well,  read the following blog! An anode rod is a very important component in any tank-style water heater, and you cannot overlook yours!
