Bill Howe Graduates San Diego Plumbers

2015 marks fourth consecutive year local San Diego plumbing company has graduates from program

June 30, 2015 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. is one of the largest family-owned and operated service and repair companies in San Diego. Bill Howe offers all employees ample opportunity for education and training in their field, paid for by the company, through several organizations, but most notably through the local Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors of San Diego (PHCC-SD). The San Diego plumbing company has been a long standing member of the PHCC supporting licensed San Diego plumbers, education and high industry standards.

On June 27, the PHCC of San Diego hosted the 123rd annual Installation of Officers and Graduation Ceremony at the Island Palms Hotel & Marina in Shelter Island. Graduates participated in a 4-year program, the PHCC Journeyman Apprenticeship that prepares them for taking their Journeyman License Test. Since inception in 2008, the academy has seen hundreds of students complete the program and enter into the trade as licensed Journeyman plumbers. Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. has had over 40 of its employees take part in the program and this year will celebrate the fourth graduating class, with two of their own.

Justin Gould and Gilbert Baca began the PHCC Apprenticeship Program in 2011, and have each completed the 4-year course while working full time. It is a part class work one night each week; part on the job training led by industry leaders and is fully accredited. The San Diego plumbers have also been with Bill Howe Plumbing, Justin as a Lead Epoxy Lining Technician, and Gilbert in the drain services division, since 2010 and 2006, respectively. Each has worked their way from laborer, to drain tech trainee to lead technician in their chosen fields and are model employees and students.

“Bill and I have been a part of the PHCC for many years, and both of us have also served on the board and as President of the local chapter,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Plumbing, inc. “In our industry, it is so important that our field techs are trained for their jobs. We are entrusted by the community and we want to provide on t the highest level of service. We know that is our responsibility to provide education to our employees and help them to grow in their careers, while taking care of our customers”

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!

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.
