Quality Plumber Week will run from 2 to 8 October to celebrate the skilled work plumbing and heating engineers carry out everyday.

Organised by Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC), the forth Quality Plumber Week aims to recognise the diversity and range of skills plumbers have, which is often overlooked until an emergency leak or broken boiler requires attention.

The week works to raise consumer awareness of using properly qualified, trained and accredited plumbers in a bid to reduce the number of rogue traders operating in the trade.

In 2017 APHC will be promoting the importance of continuous skills development to the industry and reminding the public about the importance of choosing an appropriately qualified plumbing and heating engineer, providing advice for sourcing a quality plumber and reminding consumers to always check credentials.

John Thompson, Chief Executive, APHC said: “By raising the reputation of the industry we are also educating consumers to ensure their plumber is fully qualified for the job they are working on.”
