Efficiency Tips: How to Save When Heating Water

Monday, February 15th, 2021

technician-in-doorWe are all guilty of making some purchases that are a bit unnecessary. That expensive cup of coffee every couple of days, that night you just can’t bear the thought of cooking so you order delivery, etc. There’s nothing wrong with this, of course. It’s your money. Spend it the way you want to. We’re just pointing out that these are the types of expenses that are at least realistic to cut back on or mostly eliminate in an effort to save money.

Where Is That Leak?

Monday, September 28th, 2020

technician-in-doorIf you ask the average Joe what the most common problem with plumbing systems is, he’d probably say “leaks.” That’s a little vague, but he’d be right. When you’re piping water throughout a house and then draining that wastewater out of a house when you’re done with it, leaks are just a reality you have to live with. The fact that leaks aren’t all that uncommon doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be taken seriously, though.

One of the tricky things about dealing with leaks is that they may surface far from the actual source. Remember, water is going to follow gravity’s natural path. So, it can leak out of a pipe or fixture in one spot, travel along pipes or construction materials, and wind up somewhere else in the house. That’s just one of the reasons why you need professional leak detection services in Corona, CA. Our Sunny Plumbers will find the exact location of your leak.
