San Diego Plumber Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month with “Pink Booties”

Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. Field Technicians Will Sport Pink Footwear to Help Raise Awareness through October

Luis and Jessica

Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. is one of the largest family-owned and operated service companies specializing in plumbing, restoration and flood services, and air conditioning and heater repair. San Diego has been home to Bill Howe since 1980 and they have committed to dedicating their company to continue giving back to their community through outreach and philanthropy. The San Diego plumber, grown to a family of companies, is proud to support breast cancer awareness month throughout October with pink protective footwear.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. From sports teams to websites, people and organizations around the nation “go pink” for October.  The San Diego plumber is happy to join the cause and do his part to support the campaign. Shu Bee, the company that provides shoe covers for the Bill Howe Family of Companies’ field technicians notified them of the pink booties available for the month of October.

According to the website,, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, it is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women and the second leading cause of death among women in America, and it is estimated that over 40,000 women will die from Breast cancer in the United States annually. It is also proven that, with early detection and treatment, victims are able to lead normal lives. This is why it is so important to raise awareness and spread the word about early detection.

No stranger to supporting life-saving research and fundraising,  Bill and Tina Howe have long been supporting American  Heart Association with annual donations and a three-month long drawing contest to help raise funds and awareness of heart disease, America’s number one cause of death as of 2010 according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.  “Adding in this small, but tangible step towards awareness is the least we can do,” says Tina Howe, Vice President of The Bill Howe Family o f Companies. “We are very proud of all of our techs for stepping up and wanting to help spread the word by wearing these special pink booties.”

Bill Howe’s plumbers wear “booties” or shoe coverings whenever they enter a customer’s home to protect their flooring and keep the homes clean. With over 170 service calls a day, five days a week, including approximately 100 weekend emergency calls, that equals to well over 3500 potential chances to help spread the word about Breast Cancer this  October.

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.
