Monday, February 19th, 2018

slab-leakThere are a lot of great plumbers out there, and the ones on our team are some of the very finest in the industry. If you ever hear a plumber tell you that you can somehow completely eliminate the risk of leaks in your system, then you know that you are not talking to a trustworthy individual—and certainly not a member of The Sunny Plumber SoCal’s team. The truth of the matter is that every plumbing system is susceptible to occasional leaks.

Leaks in your plumbing system may develop for a number of reasons. Sure, they could be the result of shoddy workmanship (again, certainly not if you have been working with our team from the start).

What You Should Never Put Down the Garbage Disposal

Monday, February 5th, 2018

family-cookingThere are components in your plumbing system that simply cannot be removed from the equation if you want to, well, use a plumbing system. Think of your water line, or the sewer/drainage system. Other parts of the system are options, such as a pot-filler arm at the kitchen or, as we’ll be discussing today, a garbage disposal. While a garbage disposal may not be integral to the overall operation of your plumbing system, it is something that many homeowners would not choose to do without.

Unfortunately, some homeowners that have garbage disposals in place wind up going without them due to misuse. The garbage disposal is a great tool, but it cannot handle anything that you can throw at it. Today we’re going to talk about some of those materials that you should never put down your garbage disposal. Protect your plumbing in Pomona by keeping these tips in mind, and remember to contact The Sunny Plumber SoCal with any questions that you may have.
