Quick question guys. I'll make a poll out of the answers and will ask you to vote on it, so that we can clearly find a winner, which we'll then congratulate and stick in some mags and things. :)

I want a quick reply with which suppliers you mostly use. Whether big or small. Online or offline. Doesn't matter. Let us know the top 2 or 3 you use and I'll make sure they're all in the poll in a months time and we'll start the ball rolling and get some votes in.

UPDATE: The Poll is now live here: The UK's Most Used Plumbing Suppliers - 2017 so this thread has been closed.

Screwfix don't even do trade do they? Can't your customers buy everything from them at the same price?

Hi Dan,
I tend to use Toolstation for pipes and fittings as they are good quality and really cheap. I would recommend Mr Heating for rads and boilers, great customer service and the cheapest that I have found.
B&Q if "really" desperate.
Nice work with the site.

Dan---We are DIY in France and rely primarily on Leroy Merlin, which is not an easy thing, because they are constantly changing wholesalers and opening holes in their product lines, particularly in hard-to-find brass and copper. At least they still have a culture of customer service. Castorama is definitely a second choice. Sometimes they have the best price but there have been a lot of problem products. Under great duress, we go to a professional Perpignan store named CCL on Julien Panchot west of town. Standard there is to pretend that when women speak, they must not be asking a plumbing question, so it doesn’t compute. My wife who speaks much better French than I do and is a better plombier refuses to use me as a foil anymore. On rare occasions when she needs a part from them, she goes in alone for combat now.—Richard

Amazon, Screwfix or Toolstation. Amazon is really good for tools and when I compare prices I find Amazon usually comes out on top.
