The Bill Howe Family of Companies Walking to Save Hearts with the AHA

Well-known San Diego Plumber preparing for 2014 American Heart Association Heart Walk W/ company fundraiser

August 13, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies has been a part of the local community since 1980. Beginning with just one plumber offering simple drain cleanings in Pacific Beach, they have added additional divisions in restoration & flood, heating & air as well as growing into one of the premier San Diego plumbers. Part of their success has been an unwavering dedication to cultivating a “pay-it-forward” spirit in their business, community and family.

The San Diego plumber has been a long-time supporter of the American Heart Association. Since 2010, they have been hosting a 90-day “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart drawing contest, which reaches out to children ages 5-12 and their families to promote healthy and active lifestyles. Entrants can win the grand prize, a $250 gift card to Toys ‘R Us, and four runners up also receive $100 gift cards. The company also sponsors the AHA “Beach” Ball each year with a donation of $25,000 annually. Additionally, they will be taking part for the 3rd year in the AHA Heart Walk this September.

The AHA raises funds throughout the year with several different events including the 23rd annual Walk, the Association’s premiere national walking event, which will take place on Saturday September 13 at Balboa Park. The Heart Walk promotes an active lifestyle and heart health, while also celebrating heart disease and stroke survivors. Individuals or teams raise funds, which go directly to lifesaving efforts in San Diego helping to fund stroke and cardiovascular research and education programs.   The Bill Howe Family of Companies will be participating for the third time in 2014 and have raised their own fundraising goal to $5000 (the goal in 2013 was $2400) as well as inviting the entire company and their families to participate.

“We are especially excited for the Heart Walk this year,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We are entering into our third year of the Bill Howe wellness program and really seeing the impact of positive messaging and promotion of healthy active lifestyles in our own company.”

The event will be held on Saturday, September 13, 2014. Opening ceremonies begin early at 6:50 in the morning at Balboa Park. The event is pet and family friendly, and includes the “Miracle  Mile,” a one-mile “Survivor” walk to honor all those who have been affected by heart disease and stroke. If you would like to make a donation to help San Diego plumber, Bill Howe, the Bill Howe Team, or wish to join “Howe’s Got Heart” Heart Walk Team, visit their AHA Team Page (link)

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.
