Approved Plumber Search

Find a local plumber you can trust using our free online directory search.

WaterSafe approved plumbers are certified by our national accreditation body, with specific training in the UK’s Water Fittings Regulations and Byelaws.

Hiring a WaterSafe approved plumber ensures that all plumbing work meets high standards and protects the quality of drinking water in your home and business, in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

Water Support Services search

When planning a plumbing project, you may wish to hire specialised contractors, rather than a fully qualified WaterSafe Plumber.

These Water Support Services contractors include:

  • Groundworkers
  • Catering installers
  • Point of Use

These contractors are not approved WaterSafe plumbers, but they are recognised by the water company schemes APLUS, TAPS, WaterMark and WIAPS to carry out specific types of work in compliance with the Water Fittings Regulations and Byelaws. 

Groundworkers

Groundworkers can work on the supply pipe (the underground pipe) supplying your property, up to the internal stop valve.

Catering installers

Catering Installers can install commercial kitchen equipment.

Point of Use installers

Point of Use Installers can install cold water chillers connected directly to the mains.

For further information or help, you should contact the relevant water company scheme.

Emergency Plumber Search

Find a local WaterSafe approved plumber to help with your emergency.

For leaks, burst pipes, or other plumbing emergencies, WaterSafe’s emergency search will give you the contact details of a plumber who can help right away.

If you have no water, very low pressure or concerns about the quality of your water, you should contact your local water company straight away.

SNIPEF Award Inspired Pupils for World Plumbing Day

The Scottish and Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers' Federation (SNIPEF) has launched a competition encouraging Scottish school children to get creative and highlight the importance of clean water.

As part of SNIPEF’s support for World Plumbing Day, CEO Robert Burgon recently visited two primary schools to talk to the children about the links between water, plumbing and health. As part of the presentation, pupils were invited to design posters marking World Plumbing Day which is being marked for the fourth time on 11 March 2013.

Prizewinning pupils at the two schools (Abbeyhill Primary School in Edinburgh and Law Primary School in North Berwick) have now received book token prizes and a certificate and have also seen their posters being shared with a much larger audience through the SNIPEF website.

The posters attached illustrate the understanding which these children clearly have about the importance of plumbing in their everyday lives.
