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 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.

What Esther La Fuze says about us

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!
