Clogged Drain

Have a clogged drain? No problem!

At Bill Howe Plumbing, we know that one of the most common plumbing issues is a clogged drain. After all, drains are used on a daily basis and over time food, grease, hair and other substances can buildup and cause drains to run slowly or become completely blocked. When this happens, it is important to get help from an experienced plumber since unresolved blockages can lead to not only the inability to use your sink, shower, tub or toilet, but, worst case scenario, could cause the sewer line to back up and flood your home.


At Bill Howe, we know that the best way to prevent clogged drains is to be mindful of what goes down them. For example, even if you have a high horsepower garbage disposal, your kitchen drain is not a good way to dispose of your leftovers. Often times our customers will ask if they should use a liquid drain cleaner. Liquid drain cleaners can be an option, but ONLY if the drain is running slow. If the drain is already stopped up, a liquid drain cleaner will not be able to clear the drain, but will simply add to what’s clogging your drain and only make it worse. The best solution to break through a clogged drain is with either a snake or by hydro-jetting.

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!

Restoration & Flood

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.
