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.

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!

Do I Really Need a Sump Pump?

Monday, November 19th, 2018

sunny-techniciansThat depends on how much of a rush you get from taking risks, we suppose. If you ask us, however, it is always best to play it safe when it comes to your property and to your plumbing system. That is why we say that it is imperative to have a sump pump in Las Vegas.

Why Schedule Video Pipe Inspection?

Monday, October 8th, 2018

However, because of modern technology, there are better ways to go about doing such jobs than there were even a decade or two ago. That’s not much time in the long run.

One of the best tools/services that we have to offer is video pipe inspection in Las Vegas, NV. You may be wondering why you’d ever want to take such a close look at your pipes.

How Do Sewer Lines Get Damaged, Anyway?

Monday, September 24th, 2018

sunny-techniciansIt’s just a pipe. There are not any mechanical components to degrade over time. And the thing is buried on my property,  so it is not even as though it is exposed to the elements. So how the heck is it that a sewer line in Las Vegas, NV can get damaged, anyway? Shouldn’t it be safe down there, where the sun cannot even beat down on it and heat it up?

Sure—maybe in a perfect world. But this is not a perfect world, and the fact of the matter is that you can expect problems to develop with your sewer line at some point.

When they do, you really want to have the problem dealt with immediately. For what we think are pretty obvious reasons, a sewer line leak is really not something that you want to allow to fester in your home. The good news is that the professional plumbers here at The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas are never more than a phone call away!
