After having Bill Howe Plumbing replace all the old cast iron drain under my house, I was still left with the 90 feet of old drain from my front yard to the city sewer. The drain was old and full of cracks. It was eventually going to collapse and my options were to either dig up the yard, sidewalk, and street and replace the pipe or go with the epoxy lining. Needless to say, I elected to go with the epoxy lining. It wasn’t cheap, but I really didn’t want the hassle and mess of digging up 90 feet of old pipe, not to mention dealing with the city for permits and such.

Bill Howe sent me the team of Journeyman Plumber and Lining Specialist Justin Gould and his assistant James Serrano. They planned to do the lining in 4 sections over a 4 day period. Well, nothing ever goes smooth with my house and on the second day the tube which inflates the lining popped while it was in the tube. This is a very rare occurrence, but normally it would mean digging up the pipe to get the liner out. However, Justin acted quickly and was able to extract the whole liner and tube, saving the day and saving Bill Howe a lot of digging on their dime.

Anyway, the rest of the sections went in smooth and I now have newly epoxied drain line which I don’t have to worry about as Bill Howe insures it for 15 years. Like I said, it wasn’t cheap ( around $120 per foot of drain), but they did give me a military discount. One good thing about the lining is that the work periods where we cannot use the drains are very minimal and we always had full services of our drains by the end of each day. If you have old drains which need to go then I highly recommend that you call Bill Howe and consider the epoxy drain liner as an option. They can save you a lot of digging and headache. Even if some other company told you that the drain cannot be lined you should call Bill Howe for a second opinion because they can sometimes line drains that other companies cannot. Thank you Bill Howe!

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!

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.
