Now a staple of PHEX, the #PHEXGIVES promotion makes its triumphant return to Chelsea.

Engaging and informative seminars are also the order of the day at PHEX Chelsea, with the Gas Safe Register and the APHC covering important issues impacting the heating and plumbing sector.

The show is completely free to attend, all you need to do is register online in advance, or in person on the day of the show. The venue is easily accessible by London Underground and bus services, so getting there is a cinch as well.
We have dedicated this article to detailing everything on offer at the event, to make sure you all the information you need to maximise your attendance at PHEX Chelsea.
If you’re coming to PHEX, there’s a good chance you’re there to learn about all the newest products and technology to hit the market. Luckily for you, this year’s show is packed full of all the latest and greatest products out there. Here is a selection of just a few of the new products that will be on display at the show.
Intergas will be showcasing its new boilers, the Xtreme and the Xclusive, at PHEX Chelsea. New features include a full touch screen display panel, expansion vessel incorporated within the boiler, combined PRV, and condensate connection and integral filling loop. Both can be used with the Intergas Comfort Touch app, allowing the homeowner to control their heating while on the go. The Xclusive has a built-in passive flue gas heat recovery system, increasing the boiler’s energy efficiency still further.
Armstrong Fluid Technology is exhibiting its newly launched range of new circulator and condensate pumps suitable for domestic and light commercial applications at PHEX Chelsea. The new Armstrong circulators range include high-efficiency circulators for heating systems and drinking water, as well as specialist circulators for solar installations, and a broad range of condensate pumps for gas and oil-fired condensing boilers.
Measuring instrument manufacturer Testo will have its new Testo 300 Flue Gas Analyser on display at Stamford Bridge. The device features a 5” smart-touch display, allowing for intuitive operation – just like a smartphone. In addition, measurement reports containing all information on measurement values, customer address, and site details can be created directly on-site with the Testo 300.
Carrara & Matta will be profiling its new Push n’Clean toilet seat range at PHEX. Push n’Clean range is a new innovation which allows simple attachment and detachment of the seat to pan, ensuring a more hygienic cleaning procedure. The Push n’Clean Silence features additional benefits including reduced flushing noise, while still improving flushing power due to the vacuum the lid creates when closed.
The new TF1 Sigma Filter from Fernox will also be making an entrance at PHEX Chelsea. Responding to extensive market research and customer feedback, the TF1 Sigma Filter has been developed as a sealed unit with no removable lid, so it has been designed to be watertight, easy to clean, and service.
Available in both 22mm and 28mm versions, PHEX Chelsea will be your opportunity to learn more about the product before its merchant release in January 2019.
PHEX has partnered with a selection of exhibitors to provide some exclusive prizes for the show. All you have to do is visit the #PHEXGIVES partner stands to find out how to enter.
Plumbers-M8 will be offering football mad visitors with a head for heights the chance to win a helicopter football stadium tour, with 12 locations across the country to choose from. For the more grounded football fan, visitors to Flamco’s stand will be able to win two tickets for a match at Wembley, including hospitality.
For the tech-heads out there, Delta Dore is giving away a SONOS One Wireless Smart Sound Speaker, while Pegler Yorkshire has an Amazon Echo available each day for attendees to win.
One lucky visitor to Conex Bänninger’s stand will take home a £150 John Lewis voucher, and Viva Sanitary will be offering a ‘Viva Hamper’ of products to visitors, plus an Apple Watch.
In addition, Buteline has a Pro Starter Pack up for grabs for visitors to its stand, and Vaillant is offering its vSMART heating control to the winner of its competition.

During Quality Plumber Week, the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) discussed whether the industry should introduce a single mandatory license as a requirement to operate a plumbing and heating business. At PHEX Chelsea, the APHC will be covering the feedback it received over the course of the debate and talk about what the next steps should be, if the industry plans on taking the idea forward. So, don’t miss out on a stimulating session which is sure to raise some big questions about the sector.
The Gas Safe Register will once again be giving its popular presentation, covering all the technical updates you need to know as a practising Gas Safe-registered engineer. These sessions are well attended, so make sure to arrive early in order to secure a seat.
