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!

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.

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.
