The UK Plumber of the Year 2016 competition, launched by JT, Bristan and Plumb Center, has revealed its shortlisted finalists.

Overwhelmed with entries from all over the UK, the judging panel have selected just 15 finalists to go into the next stage of the competition, where the public will vote for who they believe deserves to be crowned UK Plumber of the Year 2016.

Now in its second year, the competition called on plumbers nationwide to enter in a bid to find Britain’s finest. The competition is designed to reward and recognise the remarkable talents within the UK’s plumbing industry and ask entrants to demonstrate their plumbing, service and business skills. 

Paul Crossley, managing director of JT, said: “We were overwhelmed with registrations for this year’s competition and the standard of entries and nominations was exceptional! Congratulations and good luck to the chosen fifteen. It was a tough decision to make and we’d like to thank everyone that entered!” 

Information on the fifteen finalists and how to vote can be found at, which features a biography of each. The five plumbers with the most votes will be invited to an interview session with the judging panel, made up of experts from JT, Bristan and Plumb Center, who will then decide the winner. 

The UK Plumber of the Year 2016 will win £10,000 worth of prizes, including JT, Bristan and Plumb Center products/vouchers plus products from Arctic, Big Wipes, CAT, CK Tools, Epson, Milwaukee, Monument, PayPal, Regin, Rothenberger and Toolbank.
