October 11, 2016 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing in San Diego has grown into one for the largest family-owned and operated service and repair companies in the community. For over 35 years, they have focused on their commitment to training their field team and develop the highest quality for their customers.

The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors Association is dedicated to the advancement and education of the plumbing HVACR industry, for the health, safety, and comfort of society and the protection of the environment. Bill Howe Plumbing in San Diego has been active with the local chapter of the PHCC since 1985, and has been sending their team to the Journeyman Academy program since its inception in 2008. They have graduated over 20 students and currently have 27 students enrolled.

Each year, the PHCC Education Foundation presents scholarships to students across the nation. San Diego always receives a large portion of the education scholarships, and in 2016, Bill Howe students received four.

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 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.
