Options. We love’em. Nobody wants to be told that there is only one right way of doing something, and this extends to something as basic as heating water for use throughout your home. If you are serious about heating water the way that most benefits you, then you need to choose the right water heater in Queen Creek for your individual needs and user preferences.  More and more, this is leading homeowners to choose tankless water heaters.

There was a time, and not really that long ago, when the tank water heater and water heaters in general were more or less synonymous. Today, however, homeowners are savvier and are willing to do more research and ask more questions before choosing the type of water heater that they’ll use in their homes. If you’re currently thinking about your next step toward a water heater installation or replacement, keep these benefits of tankless systems in mind.

Why You Should Have a Sump Pump Installed

March 11th, 2019

sunny-plumbersArizona is obviously not known for being a particularly wet state. We don’t get a whole lot of snow that can melt rapidly and lead to flooding. So why worry about water collecting in the lowest levels of our home? Well, because we willingly bring water into our homes through our plumbing systems, right? And we do get some rain. And, frankly, you just never know when something is going to go wrong. A dry climate doesn’t mean that you should leave your home vulnerable.

That is why we strongly recommend the installation of a sump pump in Maricopa, AZ. With a sump pump, you can protect your home from the problems caused by water damage, which can extend well beyond the actual water damage itself! The best part is that you don’t even have to think about it. But we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves. So let’s dive in, take a closer look at sump pumps, and get your home protected.

Why Is Scour Jetting the Way to Go?

February 11th, 2019

sunny-plumber-vanThere are certain projects around the house that homeowners tend to get excited about. A remodeling project, new siding, fresh new interior paint colors, and so on. Heck, even the prospect of a deep spring cleaning can be exciting, even if you’re not exactly looking forward to the process of getting to the finished product that you’re after.

Now, all that being said, cleaning your drain and sewer lines is probably not going to make the shortlist here. And that’s okay.

What’s not okay, however, is downplaying the importance of having clean, unobstructed drain and sewer lines servicing your home. Trust us, keeping up with the work necessary to make this the case is much easier than reversing the problems that arise as a result of failing to do so.

That’s why we want to take this opportunity to talk to you about the benefits of scour jet service in Mesa, AZ. This is the best way to keep these pipes in the best working condition possible.

A Little Grease Goes a Long Way—Toward Clogs!

January 28th, 2019

logoYou have plenty to do throughout the day, from getting your family out the door in the morning to handling your professional responsibilities to getting everyone fed at dinnertime. By the time you’re ready to tackle those dishes that have stacked up in the sink, you’re probably going to be pretty spent. We understand that you may just want to rush through them and get in some relaxation time before bed.

However, your plumbing system is not likely to be quite so understanding.

We’re here to help you better understand why this is the case. So read on, and reach out to our team if you have questions about this slippery situation.

Use Natural Gas Safely in Your Home

January 14th, 2019

sunny-plumbersThere are a lot of different resources available to homeowners these days. Easily one of the greatest that we have at our disposal is natural gas. Why is natural gas so great? What are the benefits that it has to offer? Well, consider this: Natural gas is a mostly domestic product. That means that it is not subject to unforeseen pricing fluctuations in foreign markets, which in turn means that it is generally quite stable and affordable in price.

Not only that, but natural gas can be used for a lot of different applications in the house, from fueling heaters to stoves/ovens and water heaters, too. Perhaps the greatest benefit is that, unlike oil or propane, natural gas does not need to be delivered to your home nor does it need to be stored on-site. It is instead piped directly to your home via natural gas piping and a gas line in Phoenix, AZ. And you definitely need a skilled, trained professional to install that gas piping.
