Earthquake Safety

Earthquake safety has always been a major concern for Southern California residents. All water heaters installed in our region must have a restraint system installed to provide resistance against movement in an earthquake.

Earthquake valves or emergency gas shut off valves have long been a requirement for properties in more volatile seismic zones in California, but only recently have insurance companies become more stringent in their enforcement of requiring properties in the San Diego area to have these safety devices installed.

These valves are installed near the gas meter and a seismic disturbance will activate a system that shuts the gas supply off at the meter. This would prevent many fires and gas explosions after an earthquake. Therefore, ensuring your safety.

Bill Howe Plumbing understands the laws and requirements and will offer the right earthquake valves best suited for compliance for your application. We have been dedicated to helping San Diego residents with all their plumbing needs for decades.

Our friendly staff are not only highly qualified, but they understand and hold the same high ethical standards we value and you can expect from the Bill Howe family. After all, we are a family owned and operated business, and we take great pride in doing the job right the first time and giving our customers the best overall experience.

For more information on earthquake safety or to request an appointment, please contact us at 1-800-BILL-HOWE (1-800-245-5469).

At Bill Howe, We Know Howe!

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.

This time we had a major issue with our sewage line related to roots. Was terrible. But we called Billy Howe and Mike came and did an Incredible job. Not only he explained really well what was going on but he was careful and knowledgeable. I was so relief that not only we trust in BH team but we were lucky that was Mike coming to execute the service.

You have an incredible team! My suite has had major issues constant backups. In the last few months we had a horrible flood that caused us thousands of dollars in repairs. Your team was so attentive and took care of all the repairs. Just yesterday another back up called them immediately and like quick responders they were there to take of it! A huge thank you from my La Costa providers and staff! We appreciate your hard and dedicated work!
