Zach did a great job on the lining of our sewer line. We’d had tree root problems for years and the cost of clearing the line was adding up. That says nothing about the inconvenience. Lining wasn’t a simple job. We only had access through a 3 inch line in our garage that tied to a 4 inch line further down. The job required getting a 4 inch liner through a 3 inch line with multiple turns and drops. Zach and the team at Bill Howe gave the job a lot of thought and came up with a scheme to tightly roll the four inch liner and get it through the 3 inch line with a combination of soap and a water and a pull line from the garage to a manhole at the end of our street. Getting the line there was very clever. There were some anxious moments but Zach proved it would work with an experimental piece of lining. But, then the real test came. He decided to divide a 20 foot section into two ten foot sections and, voila, that worked like a charm. After that, he still had another six foot section of liner to install in the 3 inch line. That was much easier after the previous lining was complete. This was a very professional installation of lining done with a creative solution. It may sound easy here, but, it was much more challenging getting around the turns and meeting the time constraints for setup of the epoxy so the line could be pressurized and properly attached to the inside of the existing pipe. There was certainly some risk. But, it was mitigated by testing the ideas first before committing to what could otherwise be a disaster. Great job by Zach and the professionals at Bill Howe that provided their personal ideas and know how!

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.

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.
