West Sussex-based plumbing, heating and bathroom group The IPG is hoping to combat “the problem of plumbers’ knees” by giving away 25 knee pads after research found that 75% of working plumbers experience problems with their knees.

The study – conducted by The IPG – also found that 57% of plumbers believe that they would need to undergo a knee replacement surgery in the future “as a result of the demanding nature of the job”, while 59% said they believe they will be forced to retire early as a result.

To help combat the problem, The IPG has kicked off a campaign on its social media channels to give its followers the chance to win a pair of knee pads provided by Lecico. The group will be giving away five pairs of knee pads every Friday until mid-March.
