Find a plumber

WaterSafe is an independent register comprising thousands of qualified plumbers from the seven existing Approved Contractors’ Schemes across the UK.
The approved plumbers registered have specific training in how to work safely with drinking water and are able to carry out some plumbing work without having to notify us.
An approved plumber will provide a certificate to state that the work they’ve carried out meets the regulations.
If breaches of the regulations are found in the certified work, the legal responsibility falls on the approved plumber and not on you.
Owners and occupiers of all premises, and people installing or altering plumbing systems, have a legal duty to ensure they satisfy the regulations. Advance notice must be given of proposed installations.
Architects, developers and plumbers must comply with the regulations on behalf of future owners or occupiers.
