Be Aware of Bathroom Plumbing Problem Predictors

Monday, April 13th, 2020

sunny-plumber-logoGenerally speaking, most homes have the highest concentration of plumbing fixtures in two areas. These are the kitchen, and the bathroom. We’re not trying to say that one is more important than the other, but we would go so far as to say that the inconvenience of not having a working toilet in the house may be a bit more substantial than not being able to use the kitchen sink for a day or two. Neither is great, of course.

There is no way that you’re going to avoid all issues with your bathroom plumbing over the years. Nobody’s luck is that good.

3 Ways That Plumbing Leaks Cause You Problems

Monday, February 3rd, 2020

technician-in-doorIt is probably not too surprising to hear that plumbing leaks are the most common problems that homeowners encounter with their plumbing systems in Corona, CA—and everywhere else, really. With all of the plumbing pipes, fixtures, appliances, and connections that we have in our modern homes and on our property, it’s really only a matter of time before a plumbing leak of some kind develops. Unfortunately, some folks mistake the common nature of plumbing leaks as meaning they’re not a big deal.

If you ask us, though, all plumbing leaks really ought to be dealt with immediately. We’ve yet to really see a leak just fix itself, so it’s going to require professional intervention at some point.  Why not get out ahead of the problem before it spawns even bigger issues?

You Cannot Ignore Toilet Problems

Monday, January 6th, 2020

sunny-plumbersThe toilet is the iconic image that most people would associate with the word “plumbing.” It is a quintessential component of any plumbing system, residential or commercial, and is used by everyone at multiple times throughout the day.

Do I Really Need a Sump Pump?

Monday, December 9th, 2019

sunny-plumber-logoWhile we can understand why homeowners might be leery of a plumbing contractor telling them that they need to invest in new equipment that they’ve never really required before—after all, not all plumbers are honest as The Sunny Plumber—that doesn’t change the fact that having a sump pump in Corona, CA, is most definitely in your best interest. Think of it this way. You insure your car to protect yourself and others when you’re on the road, but you never plan or even expect to be in a collision, right?

Of course not. And you probably don’t really expect or plan for the lowest level of your home to take on a bunch of water all at once, either. It’s not like we have heavy rainfall or rapid snowmelt to worry about in this area. That’s the point, though. A sump pump is insurance against damages to your property should such flooding occur. Is it something that you’ll need every day? No. Is it something that you’ll want to spring into action when you do need it? Absolutely.
