Plumbers in San Diego, CA Primed to Help Their Own at the 2013 PHCC Golf Tournament

*Correction has been made to date of tournament. Tournament will be held on November 1st, changed from September 13. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Tina Howe, of Bill Howe Family of Companies, will Spearhead Her First Official PHCC Golf Tournament as President of the PHCC Where Proceeds Will go to Local Plumber and His Family

The Bill Howe Family of Companies is one of the largest family-owned and operated plumbing companies also offering services in San Diego HVAC and flood and restoration.  Proud to serve their community, they have their second Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors Association of San Diego President’s with the newly installed Tina Howe. Since opening their doors in 1980, their mission has always included support for their fellow industry members and community.

On Friday, November 1, 2013 the PHCC will hold their Fall Golf Tournament for affiliate members and plumbers in San Diego, CA at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course. The tournament theme, “Plumbers Helping Plumbers,” means exactly that. The PHCC members, affiliate members and guests will be supporting one of their own with their tournament entry fees. A portion of this year’s event goes to Robbie Sandoval and his family as their 2-year old son battles Tay-Sachs Disorder.  Tina Howe, supporter of her industry peers, is working hard to bring in new members and golfers to help make this event truly meaningful for the Sandoval family.

Tay-Sachs disease is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder and causes progressive deterioration of nerve cells and is often fatal. Robbie & Lorelei Sandoval’s son, Isaac Makana, whose name means Gift and Laughter, was born the day before Thanksgiving in 2010. Developing normally and full of life and laughter, a small eye wiggle sent the family to an ophthalmologist where he was diagnosed with the fatal disorder. The family left their home and their jobs in San Diego to move to North Carolina where he would receive cord blood transplant at Duke University. He went through intense chemotherapy and in October 2011 received his new immune system.

Isaac suffered complications and remained hospitalized for six months. After being released, the future has been uncertain for the Sandoval’s, but one thing has remained, hope and an immense spirit in Isaac as he has surpassed many expectations. The family continues to work with physical therapists and treat him at home with love and support. “The future is not promised and Isaac is very loved,” said Isaac’s father, Robbie Sandoval, who worked with many of the plumbers in San Diego, CA as a member of the PHCC. “We continue fighting every day for every day.”

“Isaac’s spirit and the love of his family is inspiring and exemplifies the strength we have when we join together,” said Tina Howe, President of the PHCC, San Diego Chapter. “We are proud to offer hope, love and support and whatever resources we can to help Isaac and the Sandoval family.”

In October, Tina Howe has made plans to open a training course in San Diego, HVAC specific, to compliment the heavily focused training and education in plumbing that is at the heart of the PHCC.

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.
