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.

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.
