How Pressure Reducing Valves Save Water

In California, water shortage each year is a major problem. Since San Diego County receives such little rainfall each year, there is always the possibility of a water shortage that could ultimately result in mandatory water conservation. However, at Bill Howe, the leading plumber in San Diego, we will always suggest residents try to conserve water all year round because of the numerous benefits associated with conservation. Water is saved by reducing water pressure resulting in more water to go around for the entire year. Plus, a reduction in water pressure can also lead to some really great money savings.

One of the best ways to reduce your water pressure is through a high-quality pressure regulator. Most homes are equipped with these. They are a plumbing safety feature and allow a home to control how much pressure is allotted to different fixtures, such as kitchen faucets and shower heads. Sometimes these regulators become worn, old or just don’t work as effectively as they should. That is why it is important to have your regulator checked from time to time. At Bill Howe, the preferred plumber in San Diego, we’ve made it our policy to check all of our customers’ home water pressure, also known as the PSI. After all, we know plumbing. San Diego residents have trusted us for over 30 years and you can too.

If we find any problem with your regulator, we can replace it quickly and efficiently. We offer a number of plumbing services that include the installation of top grade water pressure regulators.

A suggestion our plumbers in San Diego make is that in addition to installing a properly functioning pressure reducing valve, homeowners should also consider water saving plumbing fixtures such as low-flow shower heads and high-efficiency toilets. That way, you can conserve as much water and money as possible. Additionally, our plumbers in San Diego can show you how the water pressure regulator works, where they are located and demonstrate how to keep the water pressure at a reasonable level so you can stay on top of your water conservation efforts.

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

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.
