The UK Plumber of the Year 2019 competition has revealed its five grand finalists.

Following weeks of public voting for the 10 selected finalists, the five plumbers below received the most votes to make it through to the final stage. The final five, in alphabetical order, are:

  • Christopher Clare, Merseyside
  • Paul Clark, Merseyside
  • Caine Curtis, Somerset
  • Dan Tempest, Yorkshire
  • Martin Warnes, Essex

Each finalist will now attend an interview session at Bristan’s HQ on 4 September, where they will look to impress the judging panel, made up of experts from JT, Bristan, Wolseley UK and Watersafe, who will then decide the winner based on each interview session. The winner will then be officially announced on 12 September.

Now in its fifth 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.  

John Schofield, Sales and Marketing Director at JT, spoke on behalf of the competition sponsors: “Huge congratulations to the five skilled finalists who have made it through to the final stage of the competition. After narrowing down hundreds of entries from across the country, we are really looking forward to meeting our final five in a few weeks’ time before crowning this year’s UK Plumber of the Year 2019.”
