Water Line Problems? Let Us Replace It!

Monday, August 27th, 2018

sunny-plumbersOne of the most basic functions of any plumbing system, perhaps the most basic function, is to bring potable water into businesses and homes. Sure, there are a lot of factors to consider, such as the heating of water, water drainage, and so on, but there wouldn’t be a need for a plumbing system without getting that water into the house/commercial property in the first place.

Why are we explaining something that is so obvious? To emphasize just how important your main water line is. Without your main water line, you wouldn’t have access to the potable water that you need to cook, clean, and bathe with. Unfortunately, even if you have a main water line in place (and we’re comfortable in assuming that you do), it is not going to last forever. Even something as relatively simple as a pipe is going to degrade over time, and eventually you’ll need a water line replacement in Phoenix, AZ. Call The Sunny Plumber Phoenix when you do.

What You Can Do to Prevent Sewer Repairs

Monday, May 7th, 2018

sunny-plumbersOne of the last things that any homeowner wants to think about is a damaged sewer line. The sewer line is a part of your plumbing system that you have most likely developed an “out of sight, out of mind” mentality about. We understand that.
