San Diego Plumber Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Bill Howe Family of Companies

Award-winning San Diego plumbing company recognizes loyal service over 20 years

June 11, 2015 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing has a distinguished history of offering high quality plumbing, heating and air conditioning, restoration and flood services. For 35 years, they have led the industry in technician training, quality San Diego plumbing services, and commitment to giving back to the community, the very tenets of their company mission-successful employees, the best in home services and customer as top priority and a pay-it-forward spirit in through volunteering and charitable contributions.

Bill Howe began operations in San Diego as AM/PM Sewer & Drain Cleaning in 1980. His first headquarters were located in a small Pacific Beach studio apartment until 1990. When he began to expand and hire additional employees, he moved to 1813 Morena Blvd and grew with several talented journeyman plumbers.

Doug Bock was one of the first five field techs to join Bill Howe Plumbing over 20 years ago this month. He is still one of the most gifted employees within the company, often being called on to consult on challenging jobs because of his vast knowledge of the industry and specific plumbing code. From obscure plumbing parts to new construction, Doug is the go to San Diego plumber.

This is not the first 20 year anniversary the Bill Howe Family of Companies has celebrated through the years.  Of the 150 employees across three divisions, the company has seen many  employees continue beyond their 20 years, and will get to recognize several more over 20 percent of the company with 10 or more years of loyal service.  “When we bring someone on to our team, we want them to grow with us,” said Bill Howe, President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “They become our family, and we do everything to keep them, make them happy and help them to succeed in their professional and personal lives.”

“Doug’s quality of work is the best in the industry, said Bill Haws, General Manager of Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. “I go to Doug when I have questions about plumbing code; his understanding and knowledge of his trade is nothing short of amazing.”

Doug was celebrated at the June company meeting on June 10, 2015. He received the customary 20-year bonus check and specially engraved clock; significant gifts that Bill & Tina Howe have presented to all 20-year veterans.

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.
