Monday, October 2nd, 2017

copper-pipesChances are that you don’t really think about the pipes in your home all that often. This is because those pipes are usually reliable and do the job that you need them to do.

Any disruption to the operation of that system can be very, well, disruptive.

The good news is that many of the problems that you may encounter with your plumbing system can be resolved by a skilled, professional plumber. The bad news? Some problems cannot be resolved, while others really should not be resolved — at least, not with repairs.

If this the case in your home, working with The Sunny Plumber SoCal guarantees a job well done.

Is My Gas Piping Compromised?

gas-meterOf all the resources available to homeowners in this day and age, natural gas is surely one of the greatest. After all, natural gas is a largely domestic product that reduces our reliance on foreign oil.

Ovens and ranges, water heaters, home heating systems, and even clothes dryers can all make use of natural gas.

As is the case with any fuel source, however, natural gas can also pose a threat to your safety if it is not utilized properly. This is why only professional plumbers are allowed to work with natural gas piping. The last thing that you want to encounter is a natural gas leak on your property. Even well-installed gas lines and gas piping can be compromised, though. That is why you need to be able to spot trouble with your gas line in Corona, CA.
