Tools for Plumbers

Bill Howe Collecting Tools from San Diego Community for Plumbing Training Program in Ghana
Local San Diego plumbing company joins mission to raise awareness of health and safe plumbing in Ghana

December 27, 2017 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing has been an established company serving San Diego for 38 years. Operating from the mission to provide the highest quality work, the highest trained plumbers, and fair and honest prices, it is no wonder that they have been chosen by their local communities as the best San Diego plumber. The company also has a giving spirit and routinely donates their time, resources, expertise, and financial contributions to many different local organizations and charities.

Their mission does not stop at home in their own backyard, however. Coming across a recent arrival in PMMag.com by Julius Ballanco, Jaime Howe had the idea to take their giving spirit global. “The article resonates with everything that we are about,” said Jaime Howe-Stolis, Bill Howe Office Operations Manager. “I thought it was a great opportunity to do what we do for our own team; provide tools that can make their learning better and safer; give them resources that we take for granted.”

The ultimate project, Tools for Plumbers in Ghana, has already made an impact and it is expected to grow over the next month just in time to send the tools with Julius and the Anidaso Health Mission in February 2018. Mission Valley Pipe & Supply House is joining the cause and using their influence with suppliers to collect power tools, and Bill Howe Plumbing is starting off with a $1,000 tool donation for the 4-year program.

Bill Howe knows that plumbing protects the health of the nation. This is why they pay for 100 percent of the tuition and training for their plumbers to attend the 4-year federally accredited journeyman plumbing academy through the San Diego Plumbing, Heating Cooling Contractors Association. “I would like to see every San Diego plumbing contractor licensed and employing trained field employees,” said Bill Howe, President. “We have a responsibility to protect our own community, but we can’t ignore that access to safe water and safe sanitation practices is something that everyone has.”

The original article, Training Plumbers in Ghana by Julius Ballanco, P.E. can be read online at PMMag.com. You can also see Human Resource Manager, Amber Rush, discuss the project on CW San Diego Morning Extra Wednesday, December 27.

Visit Anidasohealth.org to read more about the Anidaso Mission helping the community of Ghana through 100 percent volunteer doctors and staff. This February will mark their 7th mission to the region.

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.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

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.
