Address Your Leaking Pipe ASAP!

July 12th, 2021

sunny-plumbersSummer has arrived, which is leaving most of us looking for ways to stay cool. Some of the best ways to keep yourself more comfortable in the coming months will involve water use: taking lukewarm showers, enjoying a day at the pool, and drinking lots and lots and LOTS of water.

Water is vital for pretty obvious reasons. It stands to reason that wasting water is a less than ideal situation, especially if it is happening in your home. For one thing, it drives up your bills.

The Importance of Drain Cleaning

June 28th, 2021

sunny-plumbersDo you ever wonder about everything that goes down your drain each day? Different types of grease and food particles get swept away when you are washing the dishes.

All that buildup can gradually clog the drains so much that it can wreak havoc on the sewage lines and plumbing.

The Importance of Video Pipe Inspection

March 22nd, 2021

sunny-plumber-vanVideo pipe inspection is the process of putting a tiny camera in the sewer pipes, plumbing system, or storm drains of your home to get a video feed. A control panel allows you to maneuver the camera fixed onto a wheelbase and used as a toy car. An inspector drives the toy car with the camera into your house’s plumbing system as it sends back videos and images of areas where the pipes are damaged, clogged, or broken.
