Where Is That Leak?

September 28th, 2020

technician-in-doorIf you ask the average Joe what the most common problem with plumbing systems is, he’d probably say “leaks.” That’s a little vague, but he’d be right. When you’re piping water throughout a house and then draining that wastewater out of a house when you’re done with it, leaks are just a reality you have to live with. The fact that leaks aren’t all that uncommon doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be taken seriously, though.

One of the tricky things about dealing with leaks is that they may surface far from the actual source. Remember, water is going to follow gravity’s natural path. So, it can leak out of a pipe or fixture in one spot, travel along pipes or construction materials, and wind up somewhere else in the house. That’s just one of the reasons why you need professional leak detection services in Corona, CA. Our Sunny Plumbers will find the exact location of your leak.

When you think of how much more convenient and hygienic life with running water is today, it will become instantly clear that no problem with your shower plumbing should be ignored!

5 Common Culprits of Slow Drains

August 17th, 2020

technician-in-doorWhat’s the most common problem that most homeowners encounter with their plumbing systems? Probably slow-moving drains. Just because something is pretty common doesn’t mean that you just have to embrace it, though. Remember, slow-moving drains are going to become non-moving drains if you give the issue a chance to get worse. And when drains really get clogged up, you’ve got a potentially major problem on your hands.

And don’t just shrug it off as an inevitable part of using a plumbing system. Sure, there is no way to completely eliminate the risk of problems developing with your plumbing and drainage system. But that does not change the fact that a lot of these problems are due at least in part to human error. And, if nothing else, remember that contacting a Sunny Plumber at the very first sign of trouble is the best way to minimize any serious risks.

August 3rd, 2020

sunny-plumberDo you assume that your water is of a high quality? Why do you make that assumption? Because it comes from a municipal supply? Because it is treated before making its way to your home? Well, that may be true. But that doesn’t mean the water is still of a high quality when it makes it to your home! In fact, water can pick up a lot of undesirable pollutants en route.

Of course, you should never assume that your water is of a high quality if it comes from a private source, either. Private water supplies need to be tested regularly. This all begs the question of: what’s next?  Well, what’s next is giving our team a call! We’ll make sure that you have the right water treatment systems in Corona, CA, for your needs. There is no one system that does it all.
