Water Saving Tips of the Week

When it comes to plumbing, San Diego residents have depended on Bill Howe for more than 30 years. At Bill Howe Plumbing, we have more than 60 specialized plumbers that cannot only handle any issue large or small but also make it a point of helping homeowners to save money with useful preventative tips. We know that as more people embrace a green lifestyle, they are looking for ways to save the earth’s natural resources. Water conservation is one way to help the environment and also to save money on your water bill. At Bill Howe, the preferred San Diego plumbing company, we offer several ways that you can save both water and money…

Tip One – Faucet Aerators

Faucet aerators or tap aerators spread out the flow of water into numerous tiny drops. The aerator reduces water usage by preventing one large stream of water. Check every faucet in your home to make certain they are utilizing a water-saving aerator.

Tip Two – Toilet Flappers

The toilet flapper is a rubber device that fits over the moving part of the flushing valve. The flapper allows all the water in the bowl to drain out. To prevent leaks and a large water bill, check to make certain that the flapper closes completely when flushing the toilet. If the flapper doesn’t close, the toilet will continue to run, wasting water.

Also keep in mind that over time the flapper can deteriorate so it is also important to check it periodically to see if it needs replacing. To ensure proper installation, a San Diego plumbing company can help!

Tip Three – Insta-Hot System

An Insta-Hot System gets the hot water to the faucet very quickly, which cuts down on water wasted by traditional faucets that take time to heat. By installing such a system on either a kitchen or bathroom sink faucet, you save water.

Bill Howe is a company dedicated to providing the very best service and education when it comes to plumbing. San Diego residents have turned to us for years for all of their plumbing needs and questions.

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.

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.
