Thanksgiving Day Plumbing Tips: Avoid Emergencies!

happy thanksgiving from bill howe plumbing san diego

Thanksgiving Day is one of our busiest days of the year for clogged kitchen sinks and toilets. But, it doesn’t have to happen to you. Follow these easy tips to stay emergency free this Thanksgiving.

Before you start any dishes, check the disposal. Run hot water and a little degreasing soap for a few minutes to make sure it’s clear, then follow these simple tips to avoid backed up drains and an emergency plumbing call!

Use the disposal sparingly, or best yet, not at all. Make sure to scrape all food particles into the trash before rinsing plates.

Avoid the dishwasher if something has gone down the disposal by accident. Your dishwasher is connected to the disposal and could cause a thanksgiving mess!

If you’re hosting guests, make sure they know to only throw toilet paper in the toilet, no other products are flushable, even if the package says so!

If you do experience an emergency, determine if it can wait. If your drains are a bit slow and you can avoid using them, wait for Friday and regular rates. But, if you are overflowing or flooding, call 1-800 BILL HOWE (245-5469), we have emergency plumbers to take care of you 24/7.

Happy Thanksgiving!

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.
