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 Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

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.
