sunny-plumbersOut of sight, out of mind. Never is that phrase less relevant than in a discussion about plumbing. Look, you don’t want to be staring at your plumbing system’s different components all day. Of course, you can invest in some pretty gorgeous plumbing fixtures.

Now, if you’re thinking that your sewer line is protected from any problems thanks to this location, think again. There are a number of ways in which your sewer line may be damaged. The relatively good news is that there are also plenty of ways in which you can avoid damage to your sewer line in Phoenix.

The Problem(s) with DIY Drain Cleaning

Monday, October 21st, 2019

sunny-plumbersWe completely understand that many homeowners like to handle issues around their homes on their own. Not only do we understand this work ethic, we admire it. Do you know what we admire even more than a hard work ethic, though? The logic that allows homeowners to understand when it is time to call in professionals. For some reason, a lot of homeowners seem to think that their plumbing systems aren’t as deserving of professional service as their electrical systems.

Of course, we’re not implying that the average homeowner is going to try to replace his or her own sewer line or anything like that. However, a lot of homeowners do take it upon themselves to handle jobs like “cleaning” their own drains. We put cleaning in quotes there because the job is very rarely done as effectively as homeowners seem to think it is. Today we’re going to discuss why you want our Sunny Plumbers cleaning your drains in Phoenix, AZ.

What Causes Sewer Line Damages?

Monday, September 9th, 2019

logoThere are some basic amenities we expect as modern homeowners. While something like a garbage disposal is more of a “nice to have” than a “need to have” in a residential plumbing system, a sewer line is definitely something that falls into the need category. With that in mind, we have the unfortunate responsibility of telling you that there is a good chance you’ll wind up with a damaged sewer line at some point.

Now, this doesn’t mean that everyone will run into such problems, but it’s more common than you may hope or realize. If you’re serious about protecting your sewer line and your property as best you can, then you need to understand why you might run into problems with your sewer line in Phoenix, AZ, in the first place. Fortunately for you, our Sunny Plumbers have answers! Keep this information in mind, and contact us if you have any plumbing-related concerns at all.

Why Is Scour Jetting the Way to Go?

Monday, 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!

Monday, 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.

If you’re serious about protecting your convenience and the condition of your drain and sewer system, you need to get serious about grease! 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.
