Monday, September 10th, 2018

sunny-plumber-vanIf we were to ask a large pool of homeowners what the most common problem with plumbing systems is, chances are that a big number of individuals within that pool will come up with the same answer: leaks. And you know what? They would be right. There are a lot of different types of leaks, of course, but they all boil down to the same trouble—you cannot keep water in the pipes or fixtures where they belong!

How Water Quality Affects Your Plumbing

Monday, February 26th, 2018

copper-pipesHow often do you think about the pipes in your home that make up your plumbing system? Probably not that often, right? At least, not when everything seems to be working as it should be. That’s just the problem, though. Things can seem to be working just as they should, but this does not mean that there are no problems present. They may just not be symptomatic yet—or, perhaps, you just don’t know what types of symptoms you should be on the lookout for.

Just because your pipes—which you can really see very little of, anyway—seem to be in fine working condition does not mean that this is the actual case. Remember, while burst or corroded pipes are obviously very big problems, they are not the only problems that your pipes may encounter. It is also possible that there are problems within those pipes, and that’s partially what we’re going to be talking about today. Read on, and leave your plumbing repairs in Phoenix to the pros on our team.

woman-plungingThere are many, many capable men and women out there who not only handle multiple jobs around their homes, but who take great pride in doing so. The mark of a truly capable and responsible homeowner, however, is knowing when to put down the toolbox and pick up the phone instead. Let’s face it, many of us have a stubborn streak when it comes to admitting that we’re out of our league. When the issue becomes apparent, and you’re already elbow-deep, it’s even harder to call in the cavalry.

But trust us when we tell you that you’ll be much better off for having done so. Yes, there are a few instances in which you may be able to handle some basic plumbing services on your own.

Is Your Water Line in Trouble?

Monday, January 29th, 2018

pipe-water-leakModern living means modern conveniences. But we’ve gotten to a point where certain facets of modern life that used to be “conveniences” are more accurately described as “necessities” or “expectations.” Home automation is a convenience, for those that are technically inclined. Instantaneous access to clean, potable water in our homes, on the other hand, is the norm. From running the dishwasher to doing the laundry and simply brushing your teeth before bed, you need to know that your water supply is reliable.

This is precisely why any problems with your main water line are so troubling. If you have any reason at all to suspect that there is a problem with your main water line, then you need to contact the pros here at The Sunny Plumber Phoenix to schedule service as soon as possible. Certain plumbing repairs in Phoenix, such as fixing a leaky faucet, can wait a bit (but should still be resolved in a timely manner). Problems with your water line most definitely can not wait.

Monday, November 6th, 2017

woman-in-showerWhat is better after a long day of work during the hottest time of the year then jumping into a nice, cool shower? Or a warm shower on those nights and mornings when there is a chill in the air? Pretty much nothing! Of course, it is a lot more difficult to enjoy one’s shower, perfect though the temperature may be, when the water pressure leaves a lot to be desired. Don’t ever ignore low water pressure in your home.

As is the case with many different plumbing problems, there are many different possibilities in terms of what is causing this particular problem.

Monday, April 10th, 2017

While water pooling in your yard may be a fairly obvious sign that something is amiss, you should also keep in mind the fact that there are many other spots in which your plumbing system may spring a leak. Not all of these leaks will be quite as obvious as one causing a pool to form in your yard.

Even supposedly “minor” water leaks—though we contend that there is no such thing—can do very serious damage to a home if given the opportunity. That is why it is so important that you schedule prompt leak detection service in Phoenix, AZ with a professional plumber when water leaks develop.
