San Diego Plumber, Bill Howe, Promotes World Plumbing Day 2015

The Bill Howe Family of Companies promotes the role plumbing plays in the health of the nation

March 10, 2015 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing is no stranger to giving back to the community. The company partners annually with American Heart Association, supports work programs for at-risk youth, has a dedicated team of volunteers at the San Diego Food Bank monthly, and sponsors employee driven initiatives on a regular basis. A true family-owned and operated business, Bill Howe Plumbing places great importance on education and training in the industry and helps to bring focus to the ways in which a licensed and trained San Diego plumber can help to protect the community.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in Japan, the World Plumbing Council designated March 11, “World Plumbing Day.” It is an international event promoted “every year…everywhere…” educating the world on 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 without access to clean water and sanitary plumbing services 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 believe that all service men and women should be trained and educated to keep our community safe,” said Bill Howe, President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We pay for 100 percent of our plumbers’ education through the Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling Contractors Association (PHCC) Journeyman program and advocate for all industry trades to do the same. 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 supporter of implanting and strengthening such laws for all plumbers. In San Diego, residents are fortunate to have an extensive list of licensed contractors to choose from that adhere to safe practices, and Bill Howe is honored to have been a prime choice for the past 35 years.

In honor of World Plumbing Day 2015, and for the past 3 years, Bill Howe Plumbing has presented all customers with a special World Pluming Day gift during their service on March 11.

“We will be sending each of our highly trained plumbers in San Diego with a small token of gratitude from our family,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “It is our way of spreading the message of how plumbing is ‘vital to global health’ and our thanks for 35 years of support from the community.”

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.
