When looking for a plumber we recommend you get three quotes from an eligible member of an Approved Contractors’ Scheme, such as WaterSafe.
WaterSafe is a national plumbing assurance scheme with the aim of providing recognition for competent plumbers and assurance to customers seeking water supply plumbing work.
If you encounter any difficulties with work carried out by a WaterSafe Approved contractor please contact WaterSafe.
Search the Watersafe website and click on support services and select the type of ground workers which you may wish to use e.g. leak detection, moling, underground work. We recommended you obtain at least three quotes.
On completion of the works the Plumber/Groundworker must supply you with a certificate confirming the works they have carried out to comply with the Water Fittings Regulations.
If you are a plumber or ground worker and interested in being accredited by the Water Industry Approved Plumbers Scheme (WIAPS) please refer to our Training and Accreditation information.
The Water Regs UK provides useful information about Water Regulations in the UK.
