The UK Plumber of the Year 2019 competition has extended its entry deadline by two weeks.

The new deadline to submit entries is now Friday 12 July.

UK Plumber of the Year aims to find the nation’s finest plumber for 2019 and recognise the remarkable level of talent from plumbers across the UK. With this year’s competition set to be the biggest year yet, £15,000 worth of prizes up are for grabs for the winner, including two new incentives to enter added for 2019. Each entrant will receive a guaranteed prize from Vendigo Finance, as well as be entered into a prize draw for a year-long Checkatrade membership worth £1,300!

A full list of this year’s prizes is available on the UK Plumber of the Year website, including a three day holiday to Cornwall with Proper Job beer (including a trip to their award-winning distillery), £2,000 of products from JT, a £1,000 voucher for Rothenberger tools that can be spent at Wolseley, and £1,000 worth of your choice of Bristan products.

To enter, plumbers need to outline one job they’ve completed that they believe stands out as a hallmark of the quality of their work. Once the final deadline for entries has closed, official judging partner for the competition, WaterSafe, the online directory and national accreditation body for competent and qualified plumbers in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, will shortlist fifteen plumbers with the best entries.

The public will then vote for who they believe deserves to be crowned the winner, with the top five with the most votes then going through to the grand final, which will be held at Bristan HQ later in the year.
