Ladders and swings top creativity table for #FlexYourPex competition

Published:  17 July, 2017

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.

Whilst Peter Booth, owner at Peter Booth Plumbing and Heating, won the overall challenge for his mug holder made from Speedfit connections, this was just one of many creative entries that included all manner of items from models of football pitches to bikes.

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

One of the aims of the initiative was to challenge preconceptions around the reliability, durability, convenience, and overall ease of use of Speedfit connections.

Mike Riseley, Sales Director at JG Speedfit commented: “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.”
