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.
BUILT TO LAST
Take a look at this absolutely stunning and beautifully-crafted copper syphon! Another vintage piece that has stood the test of time!
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).The Vinatge Plumber ( Facebook Page )
