Bristan has launched a social media network exclusively for the plumbing community, to provide installers with a free, dedicated area to share information or ask questions in one central place.

Designed to make life easier for installers, Connect was developed after the results of Bristan’s recent industry survey showed installers felt that there were few opportunities online for them to share information with each other and to help them with their work.

It aims to offer plumbers a platform to share hints, tips and product recommendations, as well as images and video content.

Connect members will also be the first to gain access to promotional offers and discounts on Bristan’s shower and tap ranges. The Connect community will also give installer news and information on new products, how-to-videos and plumbing industry news, in addition to direct access to the Bristan product experts.

Fiona Bowyer, head of marketing at Bristan, said: “As a brand Bristan continues to develop ways to make life easier for installers. The Connect platform is another method by which we are trying to do this. By launching Connect we hope to offer installers a place to share their experiences and tips with other plumbers and in time become the number one resource for all plumbers throughout the UK.

“We plan to continue to develop the Connect platform over the next few years to offer a host of new features designed to provide further benefits to those members that regularly use the network.”

Signing up to Bristan Connect is completely free, you can even sign-up with your Facebook or Twitter profile. For more information visit:
