5 Common Culprits of Slow Drains

Monday, August 17th, 2020

technician-in-doorWhat’s the most common problem that most homeowners encounter with their plumbing systems? Probably slow-moving drains. Just because something is pretty common doesn’t mean that you just have to embrace it, though. Remember, slow-moving drains are going to become non-moving drains if you give the issue a chance to get worse. And when drains really get clogged up, you’ve got a potentially major problem on your hands.

And don’t just shrug it off as an inevitable part of using a plumbing system. Sure, there is no way to completely eliminate the risk of problems developing with your plumbing and drainage system. But that does not change the fact that a lot of these problems are due at least in part to human error. And, if nothing else, remember that contacting a Sunny Plumber at the very first sign of trouble is the best way to minimize any serious risks.

Is My Sewer Ejector Pump in Trouble?

Monday, December 24th, 2018

technician-in-doorThe last thing you really want to run into problems with is the sewer side of your plumbing system. For very obvious reasons, problems with your sewer line or septic tank can really lead to some very unhygienic and hugely undesirable situations. There is another component that many homeowners rely on that can also run into problems, though. This is the sewer ejector pump. If the layout of your property means that gravity alone is not enough to get waste to the septic system, then you use one of these pumps.

The problem is that pumps of any kind, including a sewer ejector pump and your sump pump, are mechanical devices. Like any other mechanical device, your sewer ejector pump may fail. When that happens, the basin that your sewer ejector pump in Corona, CA pumps sewage out of can fill up. This is not a situation in which you want to come anywhere near an overflow scenario. Here are a few signs that you need to call The Sunny Plumber Corona.
