Bill Howe Plumbing Continues Support of American Heart Association at 2014 Heart Beach Ball

Well-known San Diego plumber ends the 2014 successful campaign of “healthy hearts” at AHA Gala

June 18, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing started with local San Diego plumber, Bill Howe, in 1980. He began his company with the mission to provide low cost service to the local community while promoting his own “pay-it-forward” spirit.  Since opening his doors, Bill Howe has steadily grown the company into a successful operation increasing services to include flood and restoration, heating and air conditioning in San Diego. His dedication to giving back to the community and caring for his customers is the driving force behind the company’s success.

One of the most prominent sponsorship opportunities the company has been part of is their team up with the American Heart Association. Starting in 2010, the San Diego plumber has provided an annual donation of $25,000 to the AHA, as well as hosting an annual drawing contest for children ages 5-12. “By offering our healthy hearts drawing contest to children throughout the community, we are able to reach out early on and promote healthy active lifestyles in conjunction with the AHA message and service,” said Bill Howe, President of Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc.

The contest, officially called “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest, opens up to children throughout San Diego county ages 5-12. It launches on February 1 each year and goes through March. It asks children to draw their idea of a healthy heart and share all the ways they stay active and heart conscious. Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. chooses five winners: the Grand Prize Winner receives a $250 gift card to Toys R Us, and four age category winners each receiving  $100 gift cards. There is also a public “Facebook” vote open to Bill Howe’s fans and the winner also receives a $100 gift card to Toys R Us.

The culminating event of the Healthy Hearts drawing contest and the annual sponsorship is the AHA Heart Beach Ball held each June at the Hotel Del Coronado Hotel. The Grand Prize Winner and his or her family are invited to attend the only “no shoes required” beach gala, where the winning drawing is displayed. The Beach Ball also adds another opportunity for fundraising and on June 14, 2014, raised over $350,000 during the event.

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.
