“Finding a tradesman you can trust is important!” says website listing trustworthy tradesmen
Nearly two thirds of tradesmen admit to taking a leak in their customer’s sinks
Nearly two-thirds of British tradesmen go to the toilet in their customer’s sinks, a new survey has revealed.
The poll shows how 6 out of 10 of UK tradesmen have admitted to the sneaky act of relieving themselves where many wash their hands and brush their teeth because “it’s just easier”.
Plumbers topped the charts with their sink leaking being the main concern across all of the trades.
But it was electricians that recorded the highest percentage with 20% relieving themselves in to their customer’s sinks while out on a job.
No need to worry about the Gasfitters though, only 4% admitted to having a quick whizz away next to the toilet.

Employing a tradesman you can trust is vital, but it seems you simply can’t get the help these days, can you? Well, perhaps you can, if the company behind this particular survey are to be believed:
Company Trade.Love, who run a business matchmaking platform, surveyed 2,000 male tradesmen from a range of industries and found the high number of bad bathroom habits.
Matthew Jones, Director of Trade.Love, says some of the reasons for not using the toilet were “coming across as cheeky”.
“It’s well known that Brits don’t often like to offend and the results are surprising to say the least. You would think that someone you’re paying and bringing into your home would at least show a little respect.”
Perhaps Matthew from Trade.Love knows where you can find a tradesman who won’t piss in your sink. If only he knew a tradesman-finding-website that won’t pour piss in your ear.
