Jack Miller takes the HIP title
Seven young plumbers put their copper skills to the test over 2-days, installing a hot water cylinder, bar shower, system boiler, radiators, pipework and an ADEY MagnaClean Professional2 magnetic filter.
When the announcement of the winner came it took Jack by surprise, but he was 'over the moon.'

Celia Matthews adds: 'The improved standard is testament to the hard work the colleges put in to ensure their apprentices receive the very best training. All the finalists and their lecturers must be congratulated for even getting this far but a special mention must go to this year’s winner, Jack Miller.'
