3 Reasons to Replace Your Water Heater

Monday, September 16th, 2019

technician-in-doorWouldn’t it be nice to invest in a water heater, have it professionally installed by a Sunny Plumber, and know for certain that that’s the last water heater you’ll ever need?  Of course it would be, but so would a lot of other scenarios that are just not possible. Even when you invest in a great water heater in Corona, CA, and even when a plumber of our caliber installs your water heater, it is only a matter of time before replacement.

Investing in great equipment, a proper installation, and routine maintenance will keep your water heater operating at peak conditions for as long as possible, but no appliance can truly last forever. Ideally, you’ll schedule your water heater replacement before you wind up with a system that’s broken down altogether. If you’re wondering when the ideal time to schedule your water heater replacement might be, wonder no longer! Keep the following information in mind, and be sure to schedule service with our team.

Are You Contributing to Drain and Sewer Clogs?

Sunday, September 1st, 2019

sunny-plumbersWhen your drains and sewer line are working properly, you probably don’t give them a moment’s thought. It’s only when something goes wrong that you pay attention and, even then, you may be willing to write off problems as being “minor” enough to ignore. This is one of the worst things that you can do for your plumbing system, and for your property in general. We say one of, because ignoring problems still isn’t quite as bad as contributing to them yourself.

Of course, most homeowners don’t willingly contribute to clogged drains and sewer lines in Corona, CA. No, they unwittingly do so—and you may, too. Today, we’re going to be covering some of the ways in which homeowners can promote clogged drains and sewer lines in their homes and on their properties, and what you can do to avoid such accidental self-sabotage moving forward.

Really? A Professional Plumber? For Clogged Drains?

Monday, August 5th, 2019

sunny-plumber-logoYes—really! We know that there are certain plumbing issues homeowners wouldn’t dream of touching on their own—such as ruptured main water lines or sewer lines.

That is the case with clogged drains. Today, we’ll talk about why you want professionals on the job.

Be it a burst sewer line or something “minor”—not our take—like clogged drains, we always bring our best to every service that we complete.

What Can Affect the Quality of My Water?

Monday, June 24th, 2019

sunny-plumberSome people seem to think that the fact that they get their water from a municipal supply means that they don’t have to worry about their water quality at all. That’s not really the truth.

In today’s post, we are going to explore some of the reasons why your water quality in Corona, CA, may be lacking.

What Is Standby Energy Loss?

Monday, June 10th, 2019

sunny-plumberHot water is one of the last comforts that most people would be willing to give up in their homes. We use it for so many different things throughout the house that hot water is really more of a necessity than a luxury. That level of need doesn’t really take the sting out of a particularly high energy bill related to your water heating, though. Why might you be overpaying for hot water? Well, one potential reason is excessive standby energy loss.

You may not know it by name but, if you use a tank water heater, you have definitely experienced some level of standby energy loss. There is a way to eliminate it entirely, but it’s not the right option for everyone. There are other ways to limit it substantially, too. More on all that below. First, let us just remind you that you cannot go wrong when it comes to water heater services in Corona, CA, when you call a Sunny Plumber to do the job.

Using Natural Gas Safely in Your Home

Monday, October 29th, 2018

sunny-plumberIf you find yourself wondering just why natural gas is such a popular fuel option among homeowners, then chances are that you have never used it. Why? Because, if you had, you wouldn’t need any convincing about its merits! We’ll talk about those a bit more in the post that follows. What we really want to focus on today, however, is using natural gas safely in your home. Scheduling your gas piping services with The Sunny Plumber SoCal is the first step. 

We are obviously not trying to dissuade you from using natural gas in your home, but you should also understand that there is some inherent risk with doing so. This is not unique to natural gas, of course. Any fuel, including propane, oil, or even just electricity used to heat the house and keep the lights on, has the capacity for danger. That is why working with trained professionals that always do the job right is always so important!

What Can Damage My Sewer Line?

Monday, September 17th, 2018

sunny-plumbersToo much, if you ask us!

We are willing to wager that you do not really think about your sewer line all that much. Why would you?  Its function is as far from glamorous as you can get, removing waste and wastewater from your property. Plus, you literally cannot see it, so “out of sight, out of mind” can come into play.

The fact that the function of your sewer line is such a common part of your daily life, however, does not really mean that you can afford to put it out of mind.

Unfortunately, as mentioned above, there are a lot of ways in which your sewer line may suffer damages. Even more unfortunate is the fact that you simply cannot avoid them all. Some of them are caused by issues well beyond your control. Even so, we think that it is in your best interest to have a general grasp of the situation. So read on, and contact The Sunny Plumber SoCal with any concerns that you may have (or, at least, the plumbing-related ones!).
