We’re Collecting Tools for Plumbers in Need!

We found this article, Training to be a Plumber in Ghana by Julius Ballanco and featured in about a 4-year plumbing program in Ghana and how the students are learning about the plumbing trade. This article resonates so deeply with our company and our industry that we wanted to take action and get involved.

We have always been dedicated to training our own plumbers, as well as educating the community and our customers on the importance of licensed and trained specialists. Plumbers really do protect the nation, and evidence is found in many developing counties where they do not have access to safe plumbing (if any), safe water, and safe sanitation practices.

We are excited by this opportunity to make a difference to individuals working to improve their community, and they are doing it all without the use of the tools we take for granted. As Mr. Ballanco wrote, “Knowing that they had the responsibility to protect the clean water instilled a sense of pride in the students.” We are proud of any individual, dedicated to protecting their community and taking pride in a job done safely.

That’s why we are joining in. We will be campaigning asking that our team members, community members, industry partners and vendors join us an donate any power tools over the next month that we will then send to the plumbing program and follow the progress of this amazing group.

The article ends with a great call to action, a challenge we are excited to accept: “If you are ever presented with the opportunity to participate in a mission of this sort, I would encourage you to seriously consider it. The experience will be life-changing.”

If you are reading this, please join us and donate any old tools. Since the holidays are coming, we bet you’ll be getting some new ones!

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.
