More Tips to Save Water this Summer

At Bill Howe, we have been the number one plumber San Diego residents have selected for decades. As an expert San Diego plumber, we want our customers to know we hold their very best interests as our top priority. That is why we want to pass on our expert tips to help you save water in your home so you can rake in the savings.

San Diego plumber recommends to take care of showerhead leaks 1. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Use a water-efficient showerhead!

If you live in an older home in San Diego, plumber experts like us suggest replacing your existing shower heads with quality low-flow shower heads. The newer models of water-efficient shower heads can save you around 750 gallons of water each month if you take a daily 10-minute shower, doing the environment and your pocket book a world of good.

2. Check for toilet bowl leaks

To check for a leak in your toilet, you can put food coloring in the back tank of your toilet and don’t flush the toilet. If the color seeps into your toilet bowl, you might have a leak. Detecting a leak early and getting it stopped could save you up to 1,000 gallons of water each month.

3. Take care of leaks immediately

If you have a dripping showerhead or faucet, or if you detect a toilet bowl leak with the food coloring test, be sure to have the leak taken care of right away. Even a mild constant drip can waste gallons of water every week.

Because Bill Howe is a local plumber, San Diego customers can be sure we will do everything we can to help them keep their homes in peak condition. With more than 30 years of experience, no problem is too large or too small for us to handle.

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.
