The UK Plumber of the Year competition, launched by JT, Bristan and Wolseley and now in its fourth year, has revealed the 18 finalists shortlisted for the award and £10,000 prize fund.

With over twice the amount of entries than the previous year, the official judging partner Watersafe selected three finalists from each of the six regions.

John Schofield, Sales & Marketing Director of JT, said: “We’re now in the fourth year of the competition and with a record number of entries, we have shortlisted three plumbers in six UK regions to battle it out. I wish everyone the best of luck in the next phase of the competition and I’d also like to pass on thanks to our friends at Watersafe for judging the entries, which is always a tricky task!”

The six plumbers with the most regional votes will be invited to an interview session with the judging panel, made up of experts from JT, Bristan and Wolseley, who will then decide the winner. The UK Plumber of the Year 2018 will win £10,000 worth of prizes, including JT, Bristan and Wolseley products/vouchers, plus products from Proper Job Beer, Salamander, Chapter 8, Vehicle Livery Solutions, Jobman Workwear and BigWipes.
