Choosing a Water Treatment System

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

baby-hands-under-faucetSome homeowners think that because they are not using a private water source means that they really don’t have to worry about the quality of the water in their homes. In truth, though, this is completely false. Sure, water from a well definitely has to be tested and almost always treated in some way. But because that your water comes from a public supply does not mean that you have nothing to worry about.

Fortunately for you, our plumbers are here to help. Among the many great services that we offer is the installation of great water quality systems. That begs the question, though, of precisely which type of water treatment system is right for you. There are many different problems that could affect your water quality, and you want to be certain that you are addressing the right problems with the right water treatment system in Apache Junction, AZ.

3 Common Problems Experienced by a Garbage Disposal

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

Your garbage disposal is one of the unsung heroes of your household, efficiently getting rid of spare bits of food and similar organic detritus. We don’t usually think about it until it suffers from problems, but unfortunately, those problems need to be dealt with quickly or else it will clog up your entire sink. In towns like Apache Junction, garbage disposal repairs can be handled by most reputable plumbing companies. Here are 3 common problems experienced by a garbage disposal. If you spot them, you should call in a professional to get them addressed quickly and promptly.

3 Problems Experienced by a Garbage Disposal

  • No power. Garbage disposals require electrical power to run, and when that power gets interrupted, it won’t function. The disposal may also become overloaded by a power surge or similar issue, which will shut it off before it burns out. Most disposals have a red reset button on the bottom. Press it and see if that fixes the issue. If it doesn’t, the problem requires a trained plumber’s attention.
  • A jam. Certain items should never be placed in a garbage disposal, including chicken bones, peach pits, fibrous vegetable peelings from carrots and potatoes, and metal utensils. They can clog the mechanism and result in a jam. Never try to unclog a jam yourself: you can severely injure your fingers. A trained plumber can adjust the masher plate and safely unjam the mechanism before restoring power.
  • Leaks. Garbage disposals can sometimes spring leaks from breached hoses, loose fittings and faulty seals. A plumber can clear them up in much the same way he or she repairs leaky faucets: by replacing the faulty components and ensuring that the new seal is tight.

If you spot these or other common problems experienced by a garbage disposal, call the experts at The Sunny Plumber right away. Here in Apache Junction, garbage disposal repairs shouldn’t be left to amateurs. Otherwise, you may damage the mechanism and require the wholesale replacement of the disposal.

We have the skills and experience to do the job right and restore your disposal without causing any further damage. Contact us today to make an appointment. You’ll be glad you did!

3 Reasons to Install New Plumbing

Friday, April 4th, 2014

New plumbing can be a little daunting for a responsible homeowner, since it’s such an important part of the home. Here in Apache Junction, plumbing installation doesn’t have to factor in cold weather and other conditions like they face back east, but that doesn’t mean it’s a decision to undertake lightly. The good news is that a qualified plumber can help you with whatever your project is. But the specifics of that project depend on you and your needs, and the reasons to install new plumbing may vary. Here are three common ones that may match yours.

  • Old pipes
    Good plumbing can last a long time, especially here in the desert, but older houses may have pipes that need to be replaced. You may also need to replace your pipes if they’ve undergone some kind of catastrophic damage, or if they become corroded to the point where they’re no longer sustainable. In addition, you may have pipes made of lead or some other material that is no longer up to code. They need to be replaced as quickly as possible.
  • An expansion to your home
    You may be adding new pipes to cover a new room being added on to your house, or establishing plumbing for a new workshop or guest house. Either way, the room needs pipes and fixtures added, and needs that system to stay connected to the water main and other key points on your property.
  • A remodeling or development
    Sometimes new plumbing needs to be installed as part of a kitchen or bathroom remodeling project. You may not like your sink or shower the way it is, or your may want to rearrange the entire layout as a part of some big renovation.

Whatever the reason to install new plumbing, you want a first-rate plumber on your side to do it.
