About Caversham Plumbing Supplies

Who are we?

Established in 1997, Caversham Plumbing Supplies was the first independent plumbers merchant to open in Reading. Having successfully competed against the major DIY chains, national merchants and various on-line sites, we have continued to maintain a very strong positive relationship with our suppliers and distributors, as well as our Trade customers. This in turn enables us to ensure that prices are comparable to those of our competitors, without having to make sacrifices on quality goods.

Because of our wholesale environment, we are able to offer discounts to members of the public - we never charge RRP to any customers.

What do we sell?

We sell just about everything that you will need to bathe in, or heat your home:-

  • Contract sanitaryware
  • Complete bath and shower suites in modern and contemporary designs
  • Comprehensive selection of bathroom fittings, furniture and taps
  • Showers, shower trays and  enclosures
  • Many designs of towel rails and radiators
  • Underfloor heating packs
  • Water softeners
  • Boilers and cylinders
  • Copper tube, end feed, compression, solder ring, Speedfit and Polyplumb fittings
  • MDPE
  • Soil pipe and fittings, waste pipe and fittings, traps, pan connectors
  • Sundries and tools
  • ......Just about everything else a plumber will need to complete the job

All our products are high quality plumbing brands, many of which are household names.

Most items (including contract sanitaryware, boilers, cylinders, radiators, towel rails, showers, fittings etc) are always in stock at our warehouse. Other sanitaryware is supplied to order.

Who do we sell to?

The majority of our customers are local tradespeople (plumbers, gas engineers, bathroom fitters, builders etc). As we have been supplying Reading tradesmen for nearly 20 years, there are many residents who probably don't realise that the bathroom they use every day, was actually supplied by us. We are however, very happy to sell to members of the public too.

Why buy from Caversham Plumbing Supplies?

Because we are a local family owned business, we don’t have to answer to shareholders. We are therefore able to offer competitive prices to all our customers without cutting corners on customer service. Many of our trade customers have been with us since we opened our doors in 1997 further proving our ability to offer the right product, at the right price, at the right time. Buying from an independent merchant, also helps to support the local economy.

Can we recommend a plumber?

For customers who choose to buy our products, we will happily recommend a reputable gas engineer, bathroom fitter or general plumber to you. We have many reliable and knowledgeable tradespeople who trade with us.

Where are we?

Based in our warehouse in Cardiff Road, Reading, we offer a trade experience to all our customers whilst also supplying a loyal professional plumbing customer case.

Please either phone, email or pop in for a quote for any of your plumbing needs. You may be surprised at just how competitive we are.
