Monday, September 23rd, 2019

sunny-plumber-vanBefore we dive into today’s topic, we want to make one point clear. Any plumbing leak in Phoenix, AZ, is something to take seriously. Is every leak going to be a major emergency? No, of course not. But if you allow a leak to go unresolved because it’s not an emergency, you run the risk of allowing a lot of damage to develop—and money to be wasted—because you didn’t deal with the issue in a timely manner.

Got it? Good. Now, let’s move onto today’s main focus—the slab leak. Slab leaks are emergencies, and for one simple reason. By the time you notice them, it is likely that they’ve been causing trouble for some time. The slab leak is notoriously tough to recognize, as we’ll detail more below.

When Leaks Develop, Will You Realize?

Monday, August 26th, 2019

plumberIf your electrical system is not functioning properly and your lights are flickering or your appliances keep shutting down prematurely, it’s pretty obvious that there’s a problem. Now, make no mistake—there are definitely water leaks that are similarly obvious. If your main water line connection goes south and there is water rising in your lowest level, that’s something you’ll probably recognize. The real problem here is that not all plumbing system leaks are so obvious. In fact, most aren’t.

So what’s a homeowner to do? Nervously stare at their walls and floors every time they shower or run the washing machine, hoping that there isn’t water leaking out of hidden pipes somewhere that is causing problems unknown to them? Of course not! Don’t let your plumbing instill fear—let our plumbers instill confidence! In today’s post, our Sunny Plumbers are going to share with you some warning signs that can tip you off to potential leaks in your home.

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.

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.
