Water Heater 101

Bill Howe Plumbing has been offering professional water heater installation since 1980. As the expert San Diego plumbers, we know that installing a quality product at an affordable price is a must.

Whether you have had a water heater burst in the middle of the night, or your current heater is coming up on its last year, when you call on one of Bill Howe’s San Diego plumbers, you will get a knowledgeable and highly trained technician ready for any situation including taking care of any water damage. San Diego has trusted us for years because of our quality and guarantees.

All of the water heaters we install come with a standard warranty, but did you know that you can extend the life of your water heater with a warranty extension kit? Our San Diego plumbers know that the simple addition of an extra anode rod into the heater offers extra defense against the deterioration of your water heater tank. Hard scale and mineral build up attach to the anode rod and not your tank adding years to its life.

Every Bill Howe water heater install comes with new water flex lines, haul away, and disposal of the old heater. If your water heater requires additional work, our expert installers will provide recommendations and estimates. Some additional items that may be required for Uniform Plumbing Code are gas valves, earthquake straps and a drip pan.

Since the plumbing code is continually changing, it is always a good idea to assess new installations to ensure they are safe and up to current plumbing regulations. Every plumber at Bill Howe has the training and education to install your new water heater the right way!

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.
