Tree Roots And Your Plumbing

Having trees and shrubs on your property and adding unique landscaping variations is a great thing and the perfect way to make your backyard an enjoyable oasis. However,  doing so can also cause a lot of potential issues with your drainage plumbing. Roots are one of the most common issues that our San Diego plumbers are called onto properties to help with.

The reason for this is that roots growing from these types of plants and trees are excellent at seeking out moisture, And a source of moisture comes from the underground drainage pipes on your property. When this happens, these roots can often wrap around your drainage pipes and eventually make their way into them causing clogs. This is why any San Diego plumbing company will advise you to take precaution when planting trees and shrubbery near drainage pipes are.

If you begin noticing issues with your drain pipes, that might indicate that they are clogged. In turn, you will want to have the problem addressed immediately by a professional San Diego plumbing company. One way to check for roots in the drain is by running a sewer camera, and a couple of signs that this could be an issue are that your drains are emptying slowly or not at all, and also that they are making odd noises, such as gurgling. A high quality plumber will be able to address these issues safely and in a timely manner.

So, if you are evaluating San Diego plumbers to check your drains and clear them, then you do not need to look any further than us. At Bill Howe, we are a San Diego plumbing company that has proudly been in business for over 30 years. We focus on providing the best possible service at rates that you can afford.

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.
