San Diego Plumber, Bill Howe, Promotes World Plumbing Day 2013

The Bill Howe Family of Companies Shares the Importance of Plumbing with Local Community by Delivering a Special Token of Appreciation to Every Customer on World Plumbing Day

Bill Howe Plumbing World Plumbing Day

March 7, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing is no stranger to giving back to the community. The company has teamed up with the American Heart Association for the past three years, donated generously to The Andrew Chapman Mentorship Program supporting at-risk youth, has a designated volunteer team regularly attending beach clean-ups and volunteer hours at the San Diego Food Bank, and sponsors family members within the company.  A true family-owned and operated business, Bill Howe Plumbing places great importance on keeping an educated staff ready to help protect the community they have been serving since 1980. It may not be immediately synonymous, the terms: heroes and plumbers.  San Diego, however, might recognize this to be true on March 11, 2013, when “World Plumbing Day” illuminates the role plumbing plays in global health.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in Japan, the World Plumbing Council designated March 11, “World Plumbing Day.” This international event happens “every year…everywhere…” and seeks to bring to the forefront, the importance of plumbing in the world. Access to clean drinking water was scarce in the aftermath of the two devastating disasters; however, there are countries that live under such circumstances at all times. 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 work very hard to ensure our industry remains honest, ethical and well-trained,” said Bill Howe, President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We align ourselves with organizations such as the Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling Contractors Association (PHCC) and we insist on continuous training and education for all of our employees. We want everyone in our industry licensed and working towards the same goal. Every San Diego plumber should place a priority on safe and ethical practices for the communities we serve.”

In the United States, there are strict laws in place to see that all citizens enjoy basic rights including safe water acts. Bill Howe Plumbing is a leader in the industry and has been a constant watchdog upholding and strengthening such laws for all plumbers. San Diego residents may not immediately recognize the health they enjoy can be in part due to safe plumbing practices. In honor of World Plumbing Day, Bill Howe Plumbing is planning a special treat for all customers who have scheduled service calls on March 11. Bill and Tina Howe are excited to spread the word on how plumbing is “Vital to Global Health” while thanking San Diego for years of support.

“We will be sending each of our trained technicians out into San Diego on Monday armed with a small token of gratitude from our family,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We will be hard at work putting together our gifts to send with our techs. Every customer that receives service will receive something special from us on Monday in honor of World Plumbing Day; our way of saying, thank you.”

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.

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.
