When Good Pipes Go Bad

March 18th, 2019

sunny-plumberWhen you think of system failures, you may think of things like motors or electrical controls that run into operational issues. That’s reasonable. Generally speaking, the more complex a system, the more there is to go wrong. That being said, there is no rule stating that simple systems and the components that they comprise cannot run into trouble, too. We certainly don’t mean to suggest that your plumbing system is simple, of course, but we will admit that individual pipes are not terribly complex.

The fact that a pipe is a fairly simple piece of the plumbing puzzle does not mean that you’re not going to run into trouble with your pipes, unfortunately. It is always a good idea to know some common signs of trouble to be aware of that will help you to catch problems with your pipes early on. You should also understand why it is that your pipes in Corona, CA, may run into problems to begin with. Here is some information to keep in mind.

Yes, Hard Water Deserves Your Attention

March 4th, 2019

sunny-plumbersThe only hard water in your home should be the ice in the freezer, am I right? Okay, we’re probably not going to be leaving the plumbing industry to dip our toes into standup. That being said, we do stand by the sentiment behind that zinger. Hard water is a big problem in many homes, and it is one that too few homeowners really take seriously. We get it.

In today’s post, we’ll discuss not only what hard water is and how you can spot it, but also the problems that it can lead to and what you can do to rectify the situation. Don’t worry—working with a Sunny Plumber actually makes things quite simple!

Tankless Water Heater FAQ: Is the Price Justified?

February 4th, 2019

sunny-plumber-logoAs is the case with so many “this or that” plumbing related questions, the only answer we can really give right off the bat is: maybe.  Yes, tankless water heaters have a lot going for them. However, there are also many reasons why tank water heaters are still so popular. Think about it this way—if one system were truly superior to the other in every way, and was always the best choice for any given situation, then there wouldn’t be different systems to choose from to begin with!

So, let’s a take a deeper look into one specific point of consideration when the time comes to buy a new water heater or to replace an old one: cost. You don’t need to do much in the way of research to discover that, yes, tankless water heaters do cost more than tank systems. In fact, the difference in cost is substantial enough to drive some homeowners away from considering tankless water heaters right away. We urge you to hold off until you’ve made a few more considerations, though, because a tankless water heater in Corona, CA can still make a lot of sense.

January 21st, 2019

If we were to ask a sample pool of homeowners what a “plumbing problem” meant to them, we’re willing to bet that a number of them would immediately come up with “leaks.” It kind of goes without saying that the leak is the most common issue you may encounter with your plumbing, right?

What fewer people really understand, however, is why plumbing pipes might spring leaks. It’s not like we live in the northeast or the midwest where frigid temperatures lead to frozen pipes bursting.

Probability dictates that you’ll eventually encounter a plumbing leak in Corona, CA. When you do, call the Sunny Plumber SoCal for prompt plumbing repairs.
