Bill Haws started with Bill Howe Plumbing in 1986, just six years after the company started and had only a handful of employees.
Bill moved to San Diego from his home town in Minnesota in 1984 and started his career in the plumbing industry with a small local plumbing company.

Soon after, Bill heard about Bill Howe Plumbing and the good and honest workmanship and management style of the company. It is with Bill Howe Plumbing that Bill learned everything he knows about the trade. He worked in the field for about two years before he was promoted to control the company’s inventory and was known as the “answer guy” for the technicians. In 1990 Bill was officially named Bill Howe Plumbing’s Operations Manager and again promoted in 2009 to his current position as the general manger for all the company’s divisions. He is still the “answer guy” and one of the most sought after opinions in the company. If he can’t find the solution, there likely isn’t one to be found.
In addition to his vast knowledge of all things plumbing, the obscure and the readily available, “Haws” is the Official Emcee of ceremonies for all Bill Howe parties, company meetings and summer picnics.

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.

What Michelle says about us

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.
