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 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.

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.
