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.

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!

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.
