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.”

World Plumbing Day

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 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.
