Dear Bill Howe,

We want to tell you about the great service we received from Ron yesterday
when he came to our house to look at our water heater. We’d discovered at
11pm the night before that we had no hot water and we were expecting company
at 5pm for dinner the next day, Thanksgiving Eve!

When we called Bill Howe the next morning they set us up for a 1pm to 4pm
window and we were trying not to think of how to deal with a pile of greasy
dishes to be washed and needing to boil water.

Ron came to our rescue at 2pm or so and did some tests, kindly explaining what he
thought was the problem. Our water heater is in a difficult to reach spot but he was
unfazed and did a thorough exam of the situation before telling us that he was hoping
it was just the thermo couple that was causing the problem. He had to move our dryer
and disconnect the gas to finally get into a position to check the thermo couple and
replace it. After completing that, he was able to turn on the water heater and we got
hot water back!

I want to mention that he was very considerate of our request that we needed to have
the water heater area back in order to fix dinner for our guests or cancel the dinner.
All along the process, he gave us estimates of time required to do his work and he finished
the work at 4pm, just as we needed to cook!

Ron was very polite and considerate of our needs and we really appreciated the service he
provided for us.

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.
