I want to give you a BIG thumbs up on your plumber, Alex Ulloa. He did work for me at 5279 Fontaine St., San Diego, 92120.

I had no idea there was a water leak until I got my water bill. There wasn’t any sign of water anywhere. I called a leak detector from the north county area. They were very nice, but he thought the leak was in PVC and he didn’t have the right equipment to find a leak in PVC. He told me to call CPL. CPL came out and they couldn’t find the leak, however I did get charged a big fee for their service. 

I decided to call Bill Howe to see if they could find the leak. BIG KUDOS to Alex Ulloa. He not only brought the right leak detector equipment to do the job, but he actually put his ear to the ground to listen where he suspected the leak to be. He worked very hard searching for this leak. He would not give up till he found it. The leak turned out to be in copper plumbing, not PVC . He scheduled to come back the next day to take care of the leak. He told me what it would take to fix it as well as telling me what it would cost.

He came back the next day with his assistant, Julio. Alex and Julio did an excellent job on repairing this leak. It was not an easy leak to find. The leak ended up being under a concrete patio slab which was why you didn’t see any water. They were determined to make sure it was fixed right! They worked hard. Their people skills also need to be commended. They took the time to explain what they were going to do and why. They were polite and professional! Nothing is better than that!

I would highly recommend Alex Ulloa as a highly skilled and professional plumber. Hopefully, I don’t have any more leaks like this one (approx. $1200 water bill, may be more). But if I do, I want to have Alex Ulloa fix it! I will highly recommend Bill Howe Plumbing. I have done this in the past as I have used Bill Howe before. KUDOS to Alex Ulloa. He makes Bill Howe plumbing true to their word, “Call Bill Howe, he knows how”! Thank you. 

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.
