Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air, Restoration & Flood Volunteers Break Record

Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air, Restoration & Flood Volunteers Achieves Record in October
Group of San Diego plumbing, heating & air, restoration & flood volunteers break local record  

October 31, 2017 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing, Heating & Air, Restoration & Flood Service, Inc., is a family-owned and operated San Diego based home service company built on a mission of creating healthy and happy employees, taking care of customers like family, and giving back to the community. For 37 years, they have been successful in their mission and have grown their one-truck San Diego plumbing company to over 170 employees across three divisions.

Part of the company’s success in their mission begins with the employees. Bill Howe has created a family atmosphere where employees can thrive, and take ownership in their careers. They pay for 100 percent of the 4-year San Diego plumbing program at the PHCC Academy, as well as hosting special events throughout the year. But, one special way they involve their team is through their community giving.

Bill Howe has been volunteering with the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank since 2010. Once a month, the company’s team of employee and friends & family volunteers meet at the distribution center where they perform a various task including boxing food that the organization then provides to seniors throughout the community.

“Packaging the senior boxes is one of the most rewarding tasks,” said Tina Howe. “We understand the exact impact we are making by how much we can accomplish during our time volunteering.” The volunteers spend a little under 2 hours, and have always come close to making the most senior boxes in a volunteer shift. For the month of October, they challenged themselves to beat the record of packaging 1300 boxes in a shift and set their goal on 2000, or approximately 22 complete boxes per minute.

On Wednesday, October 18, the company surpassed the old record and even exceeded their own goal by one box, completing 2001 senior boxes in under two hours. That directly helps 2001 seniors in the San Diego community with over 60,030 pounds of food, equaling to 50,000 meals. Tina Said, “We know it is not a competition, but are so proud to know that, when we put our minds to it, in the amount of time we have to give, we can make a huge impact in someone’s life.” View the post-volunteer video on the Bill Howe Facebook Page.

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.
