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 Joel C says about us

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.
