We’ll help you choose the best water heater for your home or business. We install both conventional water heaters and tankless models. Tankless water heaters offer a long life and more efficient performance with less water usage. You also have the convenience of hot water without waiting for it to heat. They are a great space-saving choice for small homes because they require less room for installation.

San Diego has notoriously hard water, and we can help with water filtration systems for your home or business. You can discuss your options with our service team, and once you choose a product that meets your needs, our technicians will install the system and show you how it works. As your trusted plumber in San Diego, we will ensure you have a full understanding of your new system before we leave.

Whether you’re moving into or out of a home or noticing a reduction in water flow, our team can perform plumbing inspections. We use the latest diagnostic equipment to find leaks and make repairs.

Clogged Drains and Leaks

We offer multiple solutions for clogged drains, depending on the location and severity of the clog. For many situations, we perform drain snaking to dislodge whatever has clogged your pipes. Hydro jetting is another option that uses high-pressure water to push the clog through the pipe. This is a fast and economical process for many clogged drains, especially those that don’t respond to snaking.

Our team can take care of complex sewer issues, using a camera to inspect the pipes and find clogs or sections of damaged pipe. Rather than dig up your yard, we can resolve leaks in your drain with sewer lining. This process helps you save time and money while preventing future leaks and leaves your home intact. Whatever plumbing issue you're dealing with, let our experts take care of the problem.

Hidden Leaks in the Foundation

If your home has a concrete slab for a foundation, you could experience a water leak and not even know it. Bill Howe has the equipment necessary to detect slab leaks, so you can get the problem fixed.

These leaks can go on for days, weeks, or even months before you notice wet carpet in your basement or buckling tile. Leaking water can lead to mold and mildew, which may require extensive mold remediation to make the area of your home safe to inhabit again. If you have high water bills with no idea of the cause, you can call our team for leak detection for your plumbing in San Diego. We’ll find out where the problem originates and provide you with options for repair. We guarantee complete satisfaction for all our work.

Kathryn Y.

In the process of selling a home in San Diego, we had maintenance work performed by Bill Howe. When the buyer's agent become overly concerned regarding a potential problem, (Technician) not only performed the maintenance in a highly professional, conscientious and expedient manner, but went the extra mile by talking to the buyer's agent and answering all of his questions. He then stayed even later to meet with the buyer to personally educate him, explaining proper care for maintaining pipes. He gave the buyer detailed camera views of the sewer lines. He was thoughtful, professional and patient with all parties. His expertise and enthusiasm made a tense situation end positively for all of us. (Technician) is a huge asset and one of the reasons we will continue to use Bill Howe for our future plumbing needs.

Jen H.

My water heater started to leak and I called Bill Howe for an estimate since I've had great experiences with them and know they are trustworthy. (Technician) came out and brought a new water heater in case the estimate was accepted which was amazing. I thought I'd have to wait another day for installation. (Technician) had great communication and explained the changes needed. He moved the straps around the water heater to a position that was safer. The level of professionalism from (Technician) as well as other reps from Bill Howe can't be beat. I always feel they go above and beyond. They are the first company I think of when something goes wrong.
