Common Emergency Plumbing Problems

Clogged Drains/ Blockages

Drain backups are a common plumbing emergency and can occur without notice. Don’t let an unexpected clog ruin your plans.

Bill Howe has 24 hour emergency drain cleaning and rooter service so no matter when a clog occurs you’ll be covered. When the problem requires emergency plumbing, Bill Howe Plumbing is there to help.

Water Leak
Water leaks are another common plumbing emergency. Whether it is a slow drip or a steady flow, water leaks can cause serious damage to your home and raise your utility bill. Unfortunately, water leaks are not always easy to find, especially if they are underground or behind a wall.

Using modern technology, our Bill Howe emergency plumber San Diego technicians can locate a hidden leak in your home and repair it promptly.

Burst Pipe
A burst pipe in your home requires immediate emergency plumbing service. A Bill Howe technician can guide you through the process of shutting off your water to reduce damage to your home until the technician arrives.

Gas Leak

Gas leaks can occur in a variety of locations around your home. It is important to know the signs of a gas leak and what to do when you have discovered one.

Bill Howe’s licensed emergency plumber San Diego professionals will detect and repair the gas leak, provide permits, and coordinate with the city for final inspections. Bill Howe is your 24 hour emergency plumber when gas leaks occur.

Sewer Backup
One clogged drain is a headache, but multiple, simultaneous clogged drains may mean your main sewer line has backed up. When this happens, seek immediate attention. Call Bill Howe for a 24 hr plumber to clear your mainline.

Water Heater
Water Heaters can be the cause of necessary plumbing repairs. Hot water heaters of any age can experience faulty pilot lights, malfunctions from fluctuating or high water pressure, and leaks. Certain issues can wait for normal business hours but a heavy leak or loss of hot water may qualify for emergency plumbing.

Bill Howe offers emergency plumber San Diego services and water damage mediation available 24 hours a day. Live operators are here to ensure customers’ plumbing emergencies are taken care of as quickly as possible.

Diagnosing Emergency Plumbing Problems

Communication is important — Bill Howe customers will know how long repairs can take, what diagnosis will cost, and receive an estimate for approval prior to beginning any large job. Work is only performed upon owner approval.

Gary C.

Our kitchen sink drain suddenly clogged several feet down the line. It was after normal hours when I called Bill Howe. Less than a half hour later a technician called to say he would arrive in about 20 minutes. When he arrived, Scott proceeded to clear the blockage about 10 feet down the line with a mechanical snake. Service was prompt and professional. Bill Howe continues to be our go-to plumber.

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.

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.
