About Bill

Bill Howe started this company with his father, Bill Howe Senior, in 1980. Originally named, AM/PM Sewer and Drain Cleaning, Bill set out with a mission to provide San Diego with high quality work at a fair price. In 1985 he changed the company name to Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. and to this day, he continues to play an active role in the company’s success.

Originally from Chicago, IL, Bill Howe joined the Air Force in 1971 and worked as a carpenter during his four year term while also attending Minot State University in North Dakota. Bill moved to Los Angeles and pursued a plumbing career working for a small company while also attending plumbing school at LA Trade Tech and business school at Pasadena City College. In 1980, Bill moved to San Diego to start his own company and worked in the field for Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. for 10 years before retiring from the field and committing full time to developing the business and working with experts in other industries including heating, air conditioning and restoration to allow the company to grow. In 2007, Bill Howe officially expanded the company and opened Bill Howe Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. In 2009 Bill Howe Restoration & Flood Services created another opportunity to offer his customers a one-stop-shop for all of their property needs.

Bill Howe has been very active within the community and the industry throughout his career, including serving as the president of the Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractor’s Association (PHCC) of San Diego. Prior to that, Bill Howe served on the Board of Directors from 2005-2006 and as the Treasurer for the 2011-2012 term.

Throughout his career, not only has Bill Howe worked to develop relationships with other owners in the industry but he’s also been passionate about helping young adults who are interested in entering the field. Bill Howe has been an active supporter of San Diego Job Corps’ Plumbing Program as well as the Andrew Chapman Mentorship Program, a program dedicated to providing a comprehensive mentoring program of job training and skill development to assist troubled youth in Southeast San Diego and help them become productive and independent individuals. Bill also regularly volunteers at the San Diego Food Bank.

Bill Howe has five daughters, two grandsons and three granddaughters and resides in Poway with his wife, Tina 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.

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!

Restoration & Flood

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.
