For the fourth year running, JT, Wolseley Plumb Center and Bristan have joined forces to launch the 2018 UK Plumber of the Year competition, following its growing success since launch.

This year’s UK Plumber of the Year will launch on 23 April, when the search will begin to find the finest plumbers of 2018 and recognise the remarkable level of talent from plumbers across the UK, with another huge prize fund awarded to the worthy winner.

During the regional heats, the panel will shortlist three of the best each region based upon their application. These three will then go through to the “Vote for Me” process, where they will campaign to get as many public votes as possible.

The finalists from each region with the most votes will be crowned ‘Region’ UK Plumber of the Year 2018. The six regional winners will then go head-to-head for the overall coveted title of UK Plumber of the Year 2018.

To enter, plumbers simply need to detail one job which showed the full extent of their plumbing prowess and describe how it sets them apart from the rest.

In 2017, it was Drew Styles, from Wigan, who triumphed thanks to his unrivalled passion for plumbing. Speaking of his win Drew commented: “I definitely recommend the competition for all plumbers across the UK to get involved in. The support has been overwhelming and the prizes are just the cherry on the cake.”
