Bad News Bills

When it comes to plumbing in San Diego, Bill Howe is the expert. And, a group of San Diego plumbers, HVAC techs and restoration specialists are working hard to prove they know softball as well!

The Bill Howe Family of Companies has been named one of San Diego’s healthiest companies several years in a row by the San Diego Business Journal. Their commitment to creating a culture of wellness has been the driving force behind several company sponsored events over the past few years including paintball, over-the-line weekends, multiple 5K runs and participation in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk for the past five years.

But possibly the most popular component of the Bill Howe Wellness program is the first ever coed softball team: The Bad News Bills. The Bad News Bills play through the local VAVi Sports League at Presidio Park in Old Town San Diego. Plumbers, HVAC technicians, restoration specialists and several of the women from the office (and some wives, too) hit the field every Tuesday night looking for the win.

Even though they have not yet won a game, they continue to improve and have even scored a few home runs since their first game on May 5.

If you’re ever in the area, come cheer them on. And don’t hesitate to call on them for any home service needs; after all, they’re much better at plumbing in San Diego than playing ball (but they’re working on it!) and stay tuned for their first win-it’s coming!

Call 1-800 Bill Howe (245-5469) for game times on Tuesday nights and come see the Bad News Bills in action at Presidio Park.

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.
