The Vintage Plumber

Those of you that are members of our plumbing community Plumb Chat may have noticed a guy called Jack Neill… now known as ‘The Vintage Plumber’.

Jack is a master at restoring old plumbing parts like flush valves, siphons, and lots more.

How Jack finds these rare, unique items is a mystery, but, one thing for sure is that he creates things of beauty! One thing for sure is that things are not built like this anymore!

Jack is dedicated to restoring the history of British Plumbing and below you will see a selection of his amazing work so far.

Check out this video ( Produced by Wayne Bettess ) showcasing the stunning transformation of a selection of valves and syphons.

Unbelievable Transformations!

I thought I’d kick off the page content by showcasing one of these beauties: a “Beta Valve” produced by former Scottish company Shanks (which went on to merge with English company Armitageware in 1969 to become Armitage Shanks).

  1. It is a fact of life that nothing endures forever, and none of that feeling is truer. Ancient and vintage plumbing components would inevitably fail to cause deterioration, decay, rust and leakage to cause stress and cost them a heavy amount of money. The cost is just as high as if you were upgrading a building, but the need to repair aging antique plumbing is higher, as more can go wrong, which can lead to costlier problems and headaches.
