Rogue Plumbers – WaterSafe
Have you ever being a victim to a rogue trader?! Do you know someone has?!
Recently a survey was conducted by WaterSafe, where 2000 consumers answered to having being or known a victim of a rogue plumber.
With shocking results like these;
What’s even more shocking, is only 21% of consumers have checked the credentials of the person coming to do the work and when choosing a plumber 68% ask family or friends, 27% ask their neighbour, 25% go on the internet.
Now there is a new webpage, introduced by the people at WaterSafe and seven existing Approved Contractors’ Schemes across the UK, allowing consumers to search for an approved plumber in your area. This will give you more confidence to allow you to be safe, knowing you are hiring competent workmen to work on your property and hopefully in time the nation together can “drive-out” non trained, incompetent plumbers which will raise safety standards.
The WaterSafe webpage is really simple to use, using your postcode you will be given a choice of up to 5 plumbers to contact. Or if you have a plumbing emergency, simply hit the “Emergency Search” button to get details of emergency plumbers in your area.
A list of plumbers local to myself, using the search facilities on WaterSafe.
