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.

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.
