We are proud to install over 25 bathrooms every year for homes throughout Derbyshire.

GFS plumbing is run by Graham from the head office in Belper, Derbyshire. We are a family business providing plumbers and gas engineers throughout Derbyshire, specialising in high-quality bathroom design and installation. Established in 2008 by partners Graham and Sophie after a decade of learning with other Derbyshire plumbing firms, GFS plumbing now includes two more brothers, Joseph – a fantastic bathroom fitter and tiler, and Jack, a fully qualified gas engineer.

Graham started specialising in bathroom fitting in 2005 when he found his love for design and planning can be put to good use alongside his technical plumbing skills.  GFS Plumbing continues to thrive as a specialist bathroom fitter, while providing general plumbing, heating and gas work with the same ethos – to provide quality, reliability and longevity with every installation.
