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.

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.

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!

3 Signs That It’s Time to Call a Plumber

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

logoWe all lead busy lives in this day and age. The fact of the matter is that the old adage about there not being enough time in the day is truer now than ever before. Ironically, as connected as we all are these days, it seems easier than ever to let certain issues slip through the cracks.  We’ve all got odds and ends that we’ve placed on the back burner in order to prioritize other responsibilities. If you ask us, though, your plumbing system is important enough to keep at the top of your priority list.

Contact the Henderson plumbers that you can trust here at The Sunny Plumber Las Vegas to have your issues addressed promptly.

Monday, April 9th, 2018
