3 Reasons To Install a Sump Pump

August 16th, 2021

sunny-plumber-logoWe live in an area commonly referred to as “sunny Southern California.” That means more days of sunlight and warmth than days full of rain and clouds. While that is great for enjoying time outside it also means that we are in an area that gets dried out regularly and rapidly–it can feel like we are almost always battling a drought. Getting rain after months of dry, hot weather can be a relief but it can also be a problem because it may put your home at risk of flooding.

When the ground has been baked for months on end by hot, dry air, it can’t always soak up large amounts of rainwater well. The end result is often the creation of floods or flash floods. While these floods aren’t exactly a regular issue, they can become a problem if one hits your area and your home has no way to combat it. If you are looking to take preventative measures against floodwater damage, we’d suggest starting with a sump pump in Corona, CA.

Do You Need a Repair For Your Tankless Water Heater?

June 21st, 2021

sunny-plumbersTankless water heaters were a revolutionary appliance when they were made and have become a popular way for homeowners to enjoy a decent supply of hot water for use at home. They are incredibly efficient, as these units consume much less energy than conventional storage tank-based heaters. Also known as “on-demand” water heaters, tankless heaters are compact appliances that practically never let you run out of hot water because they heat water only when you want it.

While these units have a longer lifespan and offer greater efficiency, they also have the same weakness that their storage tank-based counterparts have: they cannot last forever. At some point, the constant flow of water and heating it up will cause wear and tear. There may even come the point that your tankless water heater becomes inefficient or stops working.

We will discuss some of the signs that your tankless system is in trouble so that you can call in the professionals for tankless water heater repairs in Corona, CA before it is too late.
