Celebrating Quality Plumber Week 2023

We’re starting the new year by looking back to the end of 2023, which saw WaterSafe founding member the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) crown their Quality Plumber Week award winners.

APHC developed Quality Plumber Week as a way of uniting the industry to champion the invaluable and highly skilled work of plumbing and heating contractors and to celebrate the achievements of installers who go above and beyond with their commitment to high standards of workmanship.

The Quality Plumber Week Awards complement APHC’s role as a WaterSafe founding members and highlights itsrole in representing and promoting quality, approved plumbers and contractors.

John Thompson, CEO of APHC said “There are thousands of excellent plumbers working throughout England and Wales, who provide exceptional service and advice to homes and businesses. On behalf of not only our members, but also every hardworking plumber, we want to recognise the skills and work they do.

“Being recognised in these awards is testament to the hard work and dedication of our members, and I’m pleased to see that most of them are WaterSafe members too, demonstrating their knowledge of the crucial water regulations.”

Applications for the 2024 awards will open this autumn - so keep an eye on APHC’s social media channels for an announcement later this year.
