Welcome to Gas & Plumb Bits, a true independent merchant

Welcome to Gas & Plumb Bits

Here at Gas & Plumb Bits and The Bath Works, we are a truly independent merchant specialising in plumbing, heating, spares & controls, bathrooms, tiles and renewable energy and we are particularly proud to be part of The IPG group.

Being part of The IPG allows us access to major brands such as Vado, Roca, Baxi & Worcester plus many more and gives us the opportunity to be competitively priced.

At Gas & Plumb Bits we are specialists in boiler spares and offer genuine parts through authorised distributors. We ensure that our branches are well stocked to give you the spares you need when you need them.
