Why we issued a challenge to our friends in the media...

At Pegler, we pride ourselves on our reputation for quality and innovation in an industry where product reliability and versatility is demanded. Our jointing solutions span the full range from the tried and trusted traditional to the newer modern methods such as push and press.

With this in mind, and to give our friends in the media the chance to get hands-on with our products, we decided to issue them with a challenge when they visited our headquarters in Doncaster.

Nothing too strenuous, just the chance to put their skills to the test without using a phone or computer!

Our team devised a Jointing Challenge to put the teams from HVP, PHPI and HPM magazines through their plumbing paces and to see which method would be crowned the fastest, and which individual would make it to the winner’s podium…

This is the challenge we set them:

To create joints using soldering (Yorkshire), capillary (Endex), press (VSH XPress) and push (VSH Tectite) with the aim of finding the fastest individual method and fastest contestant across all the methods. All participants were initially shown the techniques (we’re not completely mean!) and then timed whilst attempting to create the joints. None of them had any previous experience.

It’s safe to say we all had a lot of fun during the challenge! And you’ll be able to see just how much in June when we share the films of the novices “at work”.

Thanks to James Moore, Editor, and Adrian Stapleton, Advertising Manager from PHPI, HPM’s Tim Wood, former Editor, now Editor of BMN, and Tim Davies, Advertising Manager, and finally HVP Editor Joe Dart and Area Sales Manager Laurie Guy.

If you’d like to have a guess about which method and which individual were fastest, head over to Twitter or Facebook and leave a comment on one of the posts about the #jointingchallenge!
