City Plumbing customer wins #FlexYourPex competition

Ladders, swings, mug holders, and dumbbells are just a few of the creative uses plumbers and merchants have found for Speedfit connections, as part of JG Speedfit’s ‘Flex Your Pex’ competition.

The initiative, which ran from 6th March to 6th June 2017, challenged plumbers, installers and Speedfit stockists to make a video showing how many Speedfit connections they could make in under 60 seconds, with extra prizes awarded for the most creative ideas.

Peter Booth, of Peter Booth Plumbing and Heating, a customer of City Plumbing in Loughborough won the overall challenge for his mug holder made from Speedfit connections. Other entries to the form of models of football pitches and bikes.


The competition, launched to highlight the value of the company’s Speedfit Technology, rewarded  entrants fortnightly with Speedfit goodies, Love2Shop gift vouchers, and VIP tickets to a British Superbike race event. As the overall winner, Booth received the coveted Speedfit trophy, together with £500 worth of Love2Shop vouchers.


JG Speedfit sales director Mike Riseley, said: “We’ve had great fun travelling up and down the country and seeing some of the imaginative uses that plumbers, installers, and merchants have for Speedfit Technology. If ever you were in any doubt as to the strength of our connections, you only need to watch our videos of plumbers swinging on them, and climbing ladders made from our products.”
