  1. Hi, welcome to the new look UKPlumbersForums.co.uk - Login with your usual login details, or sign up if you don't already have an account. If you post just once, all the advertisements get automatically removed. We have some competitions coming soon, and lots of new feaures. 

Dismiss Notice

Couple of important things to note. 1. We use Cookies, deal with it. Every website does. 2. Nobody but a currently-registered Gas Engineer should be touching gas or gas appliances. Don't mess with gas at all. 

  1. Find Professional Tradesmen

    We have a few trade-related forums, including a plumbing forum, electrician's forum, and a tiler's forum. Each of them has thousands of members. So you can post a job to them for free, and let them reply to the job for free. You can then see which members have provided good advice before, done good work before, see how long they've been trading etc.
    1. Find a Plumber, Tiler or Electrician

      Find a plumber, find a tiler, find an electrician. Post your jobs here and let them respond to you, all for free! The advantage with using us instead of a JobSite or 'rate your tradesmen' type site, is we're free of charge, and you can actually chat to the forum member, see their past work, see what kind of advice they've given, get references etc - all before committing to the job.
