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.

Have You Heard of Copper Pinhole Leaks?

Monday, June 22nd, 2020

sunny-plumberWhile the basic tenets of plumbing have not seen much in the way of major upheaval over the years, there is no denying that plumbing technology has seen a lot of improvement. This includes not only plumbing systems, like tankless water heaters,  but also plumbing materials in general. Today, the copper pipe is definitely a foundation of the plumbing industry.  It’s easy to understand why, considering how durable and long-lasting these pipes are. Unfortunately, they’re also often overestimated.

We’re not saying that copper pipes aren’t a great option, or that they don’t actually last all that long. We are saying that they are not the total solution to plumbing leak problems that some homeowners think they are. You’ll learn this the hard way if you grow overconfident with your plumbing system in Corona, CA. Today, we’re going to talk about one issue that copper pipes are subject to—copper pinhole leaks. We’ll also make sure that you know how to spot them.

Monday, May 25th, 2020

sunny-plumbersJust because you want to save some money doesn’t mean you’re cheap! These days, our dollars just don’t always seem to stretch as far as they once did. Of course, there are pretty simple ways that you can cut back on certain expenditures. Brewing your coffee at home, for instance, or bringing your lunch to the office rather than eating out regularly. There are other areas where you really don’t want to compromise, though, like running your AC in hot weather.

Using water in your home is another area where you aren’t really going to be cutting back on costs, right? It’s not like you can just stop doing the dishes and washing your clothes! We definitely would not advocate for anything as extreme as that, but the fact is that there are plenty of ways in which you can easily go about cutting back on your water bills.

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.

This is exactly why it’s so important that you’re aware of some common signs of trouble with bathroom plumbing systems. 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.

That’s a very dangerous attitude to have. Plumbing leaks come in a lot of shapes and sizes, and some will obviously be a bit more urgent than others. 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?
