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 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!

Restoration & Flood

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.
