Plumber of the Year 2017

About the Plumber of the Year

For the third year running, bathroom giants JT, Plumb Center and Bristan have joined forces to launch the 2017 UK Plumber of the Year competition, following the success of the first two years.

This year’s UK Plumber of the Year will launch on 3rd April, where the search begins to find the finest plumber of 2017 and recognise the remarkable level of talent from plumbers across the UK, with a massive £10,000 prize fund awarded to the worthy winner.

To enter, plumbers simply need to tell us about the one job which showed the full extent of their plumbing prowess and sets them apart from the rest. Our official judging partners, Watersafe, the online directory and national accreditation body for competent and qualified plumbers in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, will review all the entries and shortlist 15 plumbers that will go through to the next stage of the competition. The public will then vote for who they believe deserves to be crowned 2017 Plumber of the Year and the five with the most votes will then look to impress a judging panel where a winner will be chosen.

After several strong entrants in 2016, it was Shaun Scott from Aberdeen, who triumphed thanks to his unrivalled passion for plumbing. Speaking of his win Shaun commented:

“Being named 2016’s Plumber of the Year was a genuine surprise as there were a number of outstanding plumbers in the running who are out there plying their trade perfectly day-in-day-out, so to be recognised in this way was a real honour.”


“The prize fund and title has made a huge impact on the success of my business, allowing me to take my trade to the next level and given me an amazing platform to work from with many new opportunities thanks to the widespread media exposure.”
