3 Reasons You Need a Water Softener

Monday, June 29th, 2020

sunny-techniciansYou want to believe that the water coming from your faucets is of a high quality. How do you know that this is the case, though? Have you had your water tested? If not, that’s an option to consider. However, not all problems require testing to be diagnosed. Take hard water, for example. Hard water is a very common problem. It’s also a problem that’s very commonly ignored. That’s unfortunate, because our plumbers can help you to resolve the problem.

The solution is a whole-house water softener. Our Las Vegas water quality experts will make sure that your water softener is the right fit for your home. When you use a whole-house system, you don’t even have to think about what you’re doing. The water is softened as it enters the system, and you just add more softening salt to the brine tank as needed. More on that below. Just remember that you need a professional plumber to install it.

Monday, June 1st, 2020

logoYou never want to experience sticker shock, whether after a nice meal or after purchasing a new vehicle that came in at a higher price than you expected. If there’s anything worse than that type of sticker shock, though, it’s one that just keeps coming!

Monday, May 18th, 2020

sunny-techniciansWhen you think about the investments that you might make around your home, we’ll be the first to admit that some are more, shall we say, exciting than others. A brand new deck, new siding on the house to give it a much-needed facelift, etc. While these investments will definitely give an aesthetic upgrade to your home, however, you cannot overlook the importance of less obvious investments—such as that you could make in the water heater department.

Now, a new water heater may not earn the oohs and ahs that your new deck or siding project might. It really should, though. While it may not be as eye-catching a change as either of those other examples, it is a great way in which to save money over the years. Particularly when you go the tankless route. If you’re in the market for a new water heater in Las Vegas, and you’re not considering a tankless model, be sure to keep the following information in mind!
