Heaton Water Services is delighted to announce that it has been awarded WIAPS membership. WIAPS is the Water Industry Approved Plumbers Scheme. It is funded by a number of different Water Suppliers to administer an approved plumbers scheme for them and is currently one of seven Approved Contractors’ Schemes operating under WaterSafe.
In order to become a WIAPS member, we were required to demonstrate that we have been suitably trained, that we have adequate knowledge of the Regulations by passing an assessment and that we have an appropriate level of insurance cover in place.
The membership covers the External Services Sector (Ground Workers) and provides our customers with that added piece of mind around the quality and compliance aspects of our work. Not only do we need to meet installation requirements, but we also need to consider the pipe and fittings that we are installing. Each component needs to meet stringent requirements in terms of both performance and materials used.
As an approved Contractor, Heaton Water Service workers have an ID card to confirm their validity. They are also able to provide customers with a certificate to confirm that the work just completed has been carried out in accordance with the Regulations.
