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!

What FOG Means for Your Drain and Sewer System

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

sunny-techniciansWait a second—FOG? What could FOG possibly have to do with my drain and sewer system? It’s not like I’m going to be driving my sewer line through heavy FOG. And, for that matter—why are capitalizing FOG like this?

All valid questions, and with one simple answer. We’re not talking about the fog you see in those movies set in the moors. We’re talking about the acronym FOG, and that stands for fat, oil, and grease.

And fat, oil, and grease can spell major problems for the drain and sewer system in your home. If you are serious about keeping your plumbing system functioning properly and without giving you any headaches, then you really need to be careful about how you’re handling and disposing of FOG in your residence. We’ve got some tips and tricks that will help you to navigate these FOGgy waters successfully. As always, reach out to our Sunny Plumbers for great plumbing services in Las Vegas.

3 Common Plumbing Problems (That You Cannot Ignore!)

Monday, September 9th, 2019

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. Unfortunately, they are sometimes the product of more common problems, because homeowners fail to take the initial problems seriously. Today, we’re going to look at common issues that are big priorities.

The worst thing that you can do for your plumbing system is to ignore an issue and write it off as being too “minor” to prioritize. 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.

What to Keep Out of Your Garbage Disopsal

Monday, July 29th, 2019

sunny-techniciansDo you have a garbage disposal in your home? If not—what are you waiting for? While the garbage disposal may not be as essential a plumbing appliance as, say, your water heater or your washing machine, it does have many great benefits to offer. Fewer trips to the curb with garbage, quicker cleanup times, and just more convenience in general. If you think that you put just anything down your garbage disposal, however—think again! Some items aren’t appropriate.

Not only are some materials best kept out of your garbage disposal, but some of them aren’t quite what you’d expect, either. We get it. Using a garbage disposal isn’t all that complicated. That doesn’t mean that you can just dive into it,  though. If you’re new to your garbage disposal in Paradise, NV, or if you’ve run into trouble and think you may have caused it, read this post carefully. And, as always, schedule your plumbing services with us.

Why Are Water Main Leaks Such a Big Deal?

Monday, May 6th, 2019

logoWe know that, for some of you, the idea of a leak in a main water line is obviously a serious problem. However, that old “out of sight, out of mind” mentality has really sunk its claws into some homeowners. When you add in the fact that some water main leaks can actually be relatively small, it only compounds the issue. We are here to tell you in no uncertain terms, however, that a water main leak of any magnitude is a big problem.
