Using Natural Gas Safely in Your Home

October 29th, 2018

sunny-plumberIf you find yourself wondering just why natural gas is such a popular fuel option among homeowners, then chances are that you have never used it. Why? Because, if you had, you wouldn’t need any convincing about its merits! We’ll talk about those a bit more in the post that follows. What we really want to focus on today, however, is using natural gas safely in your home. Scheduling your gas piping services with The Sunny Plumber SoCal is the first step. 

We are obviously not trying to dissuade you from using natural gas in your home, but you should also understand that there is some inherent risk with doing so. This is not unique to natural gas, of course. Any fuel, including propane, oil, or even just electricity used to heat the house and keep the lights on, has the capacity for danger. That is why working with trained professionals that always do the job right is always so important!

Water Leaks: Warning Signs to Look Out For

October 15th, 2018

technician-in-doorWater, water, every where—so goes the famous line from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Don’t worry, we are not doing a deep dive in Romantic Poetry here. Instead, we just want to point out that you can, indeed, have too much of a good thing. Ol’ Coleridge’s Mariner would have loved some potable water, sure. But you’ll find yourself wishing for a whole lot less of it if your plumbing system springs a leak!

Not only are plumbing leaks the most common problem that homeowners may face with their residential plumbing systems, but they are also among the most serious. Why? Because even “minor” leaks pose a very real threat to your property. This is exacerbated by the fact that plumbing leaks can simply go unnoticed for a long period of time. Today, The Sunny Plumber Corona wants to share some common warning signs of leaks with you, so that we can help you to avoid such damages to your home.

Benefits of Video Pipes Inspection

October 1st, 2018

sunny-plumber-logoVideo cameras are a bigger part of our lives than ever before. Not too long ago, you need to put film in a camera in order to shoot video—okay, not too long ago relatively speaking. Then came the cassette video cameras that you could shoot 8mm video on without having to spool actual film. Digital cameras were not too far behind that. Now, we pretty much all have a video camera in our pockets, integrated into our smartphones and capable of capturing crystal clear images.

Chances are that you won’t want to shove your cell phone into a pipe or your sewer line, though.

And, if you did, you’d be probably be calling us to schedule professional plumbing repairs before long (and you’ll likely need a phone repair technician, too—good luck with that warranty!).

Why not skip the middleman and schedule a video pipe inspection in Corona, CA with The Sunny Plumber SoCal, instead? Read on to learn more.

What Can Damage My Sewer Line?

September 17th, 2018

sunny-plumbersToo much, if you ask us!

We are willing to wager that you do not really think about your sewer line all that much. Why would you?  Its function is as far from glamorous as you can get, removing waste and wastewater from your property. Plus, you literally cannot see it, so “out of sight, out of mind” can come into play.

The fact that the function of your sewer line is such a common part of your daily life, however, does not really mean that you can afford to put it out of mind.

Unfortunately, as mentioned above, there are a lot of ways in which your sewer line may suffer damages. Even more unfortunate is the fact that you simply cannot avoid them all. Some of them are caused by issues well beyond your control. Even so, we think that it is in your best interest to have a general grasp of the situation. So read on, and contact The Sunny Plumber SoCal with any concerns that you may have (or, at least, the plumbing-related ones!).
