Now in its third 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’re now in the third year of the competition and I genuinely believe this is the strongest shortlist we have had. The exposure the competition has gained is bigger than ever which has led to an increase in entries. I wish everyone the best of luck in the next phase of the competition and I’d also like to pass on thanks to our friends at Watersafe for judging the entries, which is always a tricky task!”

Information on the fifteen finalists and how to vote features on where you can find 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, Plumb Center and Watersafe, who will then decide the winner. The UK Plumber of the Year 2017 will win £10,000 worth of prizes, including JT, Bristan and Plumb Center products/vouchers plus products from Proper Job Beer Rothenberger, CK Tools, Salamander, Filplastic, First Stop and BigWipes.
