Have your say

South Yorkshire residents are being given help to find a reliable plumber through a scheme backed by Yorkshire Water.

WaterSafe is the first ever plumbing assurance scheme designed to raise standards within the industry and protect homes and businesses from shoddy workmanship.

The scheme was officially launched yesterday.

Paul Straw, senior water regulations inspector at Yorkshire Water, said: “WaterSafe effectively brings together all UK water company and trade association approved contractors’ schemes under one umbrella organisation.

“Consumers can be assured of having a competent and qualified plumber every time.
