Master Plumber Dr Simon Reddy is founder of leadinthewater.com - a platform for scientists, engineers, public health experts and academics to voice their concerns about lead contamination. He tells WaterSafe how it came about and why it’s important.
Social media can be a really useful tool to highlight great (and not-so-great!) work, pick up tips, reach more customers, share industry news and be part of a supportive online community. To celebrate Social Media Day on 30 June, we picked the brains of someone at the top of his social media game, the multi-award-winning WaterSafe plumber Shaun Scott.
Congratulations to Anthony Iacovazzo of City College Norwich – this year’s HIP UK Heating Apprentice of the Year!
WaterSafe’s Gareth Harris, who had the honour of acting as a guest judge in the heats, shares his thoughts on the finalists and what makes a great apprentice.
Everyone has heard of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Spiderman, but there is now a new superhero – Captain Backflow, aka Watersafe member Paul Daley, who works to keep our water supply safe.
Rosie Rand, from Thames Water, explains why we really should care about leaky loos. The worst of leaking toilets can lose 8,000 litres a day (100 bath tubs a day) and could cost more than £6,000 a year if not fixed!
