About the Inventor
Stephen Durnin is a plumbing inspector working for Redland City Council in Queensland. Although he has no formal engineering background Stephen was raised on a farm where you often had to invent a solution to a problem. Born in the UK, Stephen worked for two years in Kenya at a self help school teaching agriculture with Voluntary Service Overseas. He then married a Canadian woman he met while teaching in Kenya and migrated to Canada for 14 years. Stephen moved to Queensland in 1987 where he had his own plumbing business until going to work for the council in 2008. He learned to invent from his Grandfather who was a watch and clock repairer who could turn his hand to anything.
