The Association of Plumbing and Heating (APHC) is hosting Quality Plumber Week 2021 this month to celebrate the essential and highly skilled work plumbers carry out every day.
Between 11 and 17 October, APHC will use Quality Plumber Week to raise awareness of the skills within the plumbing and heating industry while shining a spotlight on the many plumbing businesses that play a vital part in our communities, from unblocking sinks to making sure drinking water is safe to ensuring our homes are kept warm.
This year, APHC also aims to champion those who have provided crucial help for the UK population throughout the pandemic, and is encouraging people to share their positive stories.
Examples include HW Wilson, which provided donations to the hardworking staff of Basildon Hospital (pictured); Heat-Air, which carried out heat pump installations for a homeless charity with presenter George Clarke; and Legionella & Fire Safe Services, who provided heat for an elderly woman living alone.
APHC CEO John Thompson 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.
“Rather than focus on the negative aspects of Covid, let’s champion the plumbers that are committed to delivering high standards of workmanship and unrivalled levels of customer service despite the circumstances. The plumbing industry prides itself on extremely high standards, with plumbers and suppliers continually developing new systems and technologies to benefit the way we live.”
