How to prepare for the rainy season

We’ve already had some rainy weather unexpectedly come our way and we should be prepared for more over the next couple months. Making sure your home, more specifically your yard, is ready for the rainy season will help avoid future issues when those clouds roll in.

Your area drain (also known as your landscape drain) needs to be free of all debris so that the rain can drain from your yard. Given that we don’t regularly get rain water running through those lines, it’s possible that you have debris building up (whether it’s roots, leaves, or garbage). Running a snake down that drain will give you peace of mind knowing the rain water has a place to go. You can also have a camera inspection of your line to ensure that the pipe is not damaged or broken.  With the sewer camera inspection, you’ll receive a DVD of the inspection so that you can see exactly what your lateral lines look like.

We recommend that you maintain your drains regularly. Why you ask? If you wait until it’s raining to find out that your area drain is backed up, you may have a flooding problem and expensive damage to your property. If we can evaluate that drain now, we can provide a solution and you won’t be under duress of a potential flooding disaster. Take our word for it…it pays to be prepared and have clean drains!

If you have more questions about maintaining your area drains, sewer camera inspections or hydrojetting, please feel free to call us at 1-800-BILL-HOWE (1-800-245-5469).

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.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

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.
