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 Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
