Bill Howe Techs Mentoring San Diego’s Youth

Every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday seven young adults from the Andrew Chapman Mentorship Program come to Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. to shadow our San Diego Plumbing technicians.

The Andrew Chapman Mentorship Program (ACMP) is a non-profit program in San Diego dedicated to providing a comprehensive mentoring program of job training and skill development to assist troubled youth in San Diego and help them become productive and independent individuals. The program was founded in 2008 by Andrew Chapman who is also a plumbing technician at Bill Howe Plumbing.

It is with the support of Bill Howe Plumbing that ACMP is able to continue to mentor the youth of San Diego. This on-the-job training allows these students to get valuable insight into the day in the life of a plumber while learning a valuable trade. The students have been paired up with a Bill Howe technician who not only teaches them techniques within the field, but also about customer interaction and the importance of being professional and always communicating with your customers.

It’s important to our company that we give back to the San Diego Community and to continuously raise the bar for the plumbing industry. With this program we hope that these young adults see how a successful and ethical company is run and if they go on to work for a San Diego plumbing company, they will look for a company with our same high standards.

Here’s a picture of Senior Bill Howe Plumbing Technician, Rick Diamond showing ACMP student, Francisco Navarro, a broken wye strainer on a steel pipe that went to a boiler storage tank.

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.
