How Pressure Reducing Valves Can Save You Money

As most of us already know, reducing water consumption can save money and have a Water saving tips for plumbing in San Diegopositive impact on the environment. If you’ve read our earlier blog, How Pressure Reducing Valves Can Save Water, you already know that one easy way to start saving money and reducing water consumption is by using a pressure reducing valve. However, we understand that learning about options for plumbing in San Diego can be challenging. Home owners may be interested in reducing their water consumption with a pressure reducing valve, but they don’t know how that valve works. Luckily, at Bill Howe we are dedicated to helping our customers understand how different types of plumbing works and how fixtures can result in major home improvements. After all, we are the leaders in plumbing in San Diego.

Pressure reducing valves help home and business owners save money, water and energy by reducing the amount of water being used and ultimately, wasted. According to the Watts Regulator Company, a faucet left running for ten minutes with a water pressure of 50 psi wastes 30 gallons of water; at 150 psi, it wastes 56 gallons of water. A pressure reducing valve decreases that incoming pressure from the water supply and sets a low, regulated water pressure for the entire home or building. The pressure reducing valve can help decrease water usage by one third. Factor in the cost to heat water at $0.04 a gallon, and you can expect a substantial saving each year, just on heated water. Imagine the amount you can save when you factor in additional energy reduction and waste-water bills. Did you also know that high, unregulated pressure is also a leading cause for leaks and fixture problems? By installing this money-saving device, you can have peace of mind that you won’t need to call us to repair your plumbing in San Diego as often!

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
