San Diego Plumber, Bill Howe, Celebrates the 4th Annual World Plumbing Day

Local San Diego plumbing company helps raise awareness of the role of plumbing in community health and safety

March 12, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies loves to give back to San Diego. Plumbing, while it may not appear in every day conversation, is a much needed and underappreciated service. It is also something that many people do not have access to, and that is why the San Diego plumber celebrates March 11, otherwise known as World Plumbing Day, illuminating the importance of access to proper plumbing throughout the nation.

World Plumbing Council designated March 11, “World Plumbing Day” after natural disasters in New Orleans and Japan. The event is another way to bring to light the important role plumbing plays in health and safety in our communities. World Plumbing Day happens “every year…everywhere…” and is promoted to educate us about something that is greatly lacking in many parts of the world, access to clean drinking water. It was scarce in the Katrina and the Tsunami of 2010; however, there are countries that live under such circumstances daily. According to the World Health Organization, 1.1 billion people do not have access to safe water supplies, over 2 billion people do not have improved sanitation and millions die each year from water-related diseases.

“We want to help spread the word and raise awareness of plumbing’s role in our health,” said San Diego plumber and President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies, Bill Howe. “Each time we provide services to our local community of San Diego, we are also helping to strengthen the health of our community. We adhere to strict safety regulations and complete every job up to current Uniform Plumbing Code, educate our technicians and ourselves and stand behind every job we do”

On Tuesday, March 11, 2014, the Bill Howe Family of Companies handed out special “World Plumbing Day” gifts to each customer they visited. The gifts included a travel salad cup that comes with a dressing portion cup and fork, a few healthy snacks and a Bill Howe tote bag. “We wanted to give them something useful and fun,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “The salad cups are a great way to take a healthy lunch with you on the go, and perfectly align with our promotion of healthy active lifestyles.”

Attached to the World Plumbing Day gifts was a thank you message from Bill & Tina Howe and information on World Plumbing Day and how plumbers protect the health of the nation.

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.
