We strive for quality and choose products based on:

  • a conservative approach
  • an avoidance of cheap imports and inferior products (e.g. copper pipes that develop holes, tap ware that quickly breaks down, pipe systems that last less than 8 years)
  • a product’s history, using only those known to be reliable and which conform to a New Zealand standard.

Products and techniques we don’ t use:

  • Ginde pipe systems
  • Rifeng pipe systems
  • Water supply pipes less than 15mm  e.g. 10mm systems
  • Unbranded generic pvc waste pipe systems
