Bill Howe Graduates San Diego Plumbers

Two Local San Diego Plumbers from Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. Graduate from PHCC Academy
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 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.
