Over the course of the year, the Buteline team have been travelling around the country finding ‘NZ's fastest clamper'.
Hundreds of plumbers have competed at numerous trade events and BBQs to earn this worthy title.
The competition consisted of clamping 1 E15 fitting to 2 separate pieces of Buteline PB-1 pipe using the Buteline 15mm QuikClamp tool in the quickest time possible.
The 3 finalists (as pictured) were brought to the Buteline Factory in East Tamaki for a final showdown in late August.
The finalists were Carl Ross, Clem Walgern and Hayden.
The winning time was a very impressive 3.69s, making Clem the winner and the rightful recipient of a TomTom GPS unit plus some Buteline product.
Look out for the next national competition featuring the new tool to see if you are NZ's next professional plumber!
