How To Conserve Water With Your Plumbing

Conserving water is a great way to not only help save the environment, but to cut back on utility bills as well. As almost any San Diego plumber is likely to tell you, most homes and businesses can reduce the amount of water that they consume by making just a few simple changes, not only to their usage habits, but to their plumbing fixtures as well.

One of the most effective ways to cut back on the amount of water that you use is to have old plumbing fixtures replaced with newer, more water-efficient ones. Installation of low-flow toilets and faucet aerators are just two of the many inexpensive options that can be easily installed by a certified San Diego plumber from Bill Howe. New water-efficient fixtures installed by our Bill Howe professionals are also more reliable and less likely to break, saving you the stress of having to make a late night call to a San Diego plumbing repair company. Other effective methods can be used to conserve water in and around the outdoor areas of your home or place of business as well. For example, rain sensors can be installed so that your timed sprinklers don’t turn on when it is already raining.

We at Bill Howe have been the leaders in San Diego plumbing repair for more than three decades. Call us to have a certified San Diego plumber from Bill Howe sent to your home or place of business where we can help you discover ways in which you could be conserving water. Not only will you be saving money, but you will be helping to save the environment as well.

  1. Great story! Educating people about water conservation is key.

    An important way to conserve water is to just use less. One huge loss of water in a home is the water that goes down the drain because it is the wrong temperature. Waiting for the water to get warm at the tap or shower head costs a family of 4 about 12,000 gallons of wasted H2o annually *as determined by GAMA (Gas Appliance Manufactures Association) – waiting for hot water to reach their faucet!

    One very effective way of saving cool water from going down the drain is to introduce a circulating pump into the water system. By installing a circulation system, the water from the ‘hot’ side of the system that has cooled, is sent to the ‘cold’ water line and goes back to the hot water tank for re-warming. This not only saves water, but the energy costs heating the water.

    The best circulation system on the market that I’ve seen is available at http://hotwaterpronto.com/ It is the only circulating pump that doesn’t need electricity to run. It can be installed anywhere in the water system, and save hundreds if not thousands of gallons of water, and as an added bonus will help prevent pipes from bursting due to water pipes freezing.

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. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

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.
