Quality Plumber Week

Quality Plumber Week is organised by the Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors Ltd (APHC) and aims to promote the industry's very best plumbing and heating contractors and warn against rogue traders.

2 October - 8 October 2017 is Quality Plumber Week.

Quality Plumber Week aims to:


1. Promote the work of professional plumbers and heating engineers
2. Highlight the importance of using professionals
3. Inform consumers of how to source a professional and avoid a rogue trader

 

Beggs and Partners are supporting Quality Plumber Week to celebrate the skilled work plumbing and heating engineers carry out everyday.

Organised by Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC), the forth Quality Plumber Week aims to recognise the diversity and range of skills plumbers have, which is often overlooked until an emergency leak or broken boiler requires attention. The week works to raise consumer awareness of using properly qualified, trained and accredited plumbers in a bid to reduce the number of rogue traders operating in the trade.

Plumbing and heating engineers work across a wide-range of specialisms from traditional pipework, boiler installations and seemingly simple plumbing work to increasingly popular new green technologies such as biomass boilers and ground source heat pumps. Yet whatever the job, quality plumbers have extensive training and experience behind them to ensure the latest regulations and safety measures are met.

In 2017 APHC will be promoting the importance of continuous skills development to the industry and reminding the public about the importance of choosing an appropriately qualified plumbing and heating engineer, providing advice for sourcing a quality plumber and reminding consumers to always check credentials.
