EcoPlumbers Wellington

We are Wellington experts in environmentally-friendly Eco plumbing. There are many types of plumbing that are friendly to the environment. Some of these are solar water heating, using stormwater for your water supply, Heat Pump water heating, recycling of laundry water called greywater harvesting.

Heat pump water heating

  • An EcoPlumber can install a heat pump out side your building and connect it to the existing plumbing for heating water.
  • Solar water heating.

Waste water recycling

  • Store shower and washing machine water for irrigation.

Rain Water Harvesting

  • Collect rainwater to water plants or flush toilets. Install rainwater storage tanks collect rainwater from the roof and discharge the rainwater into your garden in the dry months. We can also pipe the water to your washing machine and toilet cistern. There can be cost benefits in undertaking this instead of running expensive storm water drains to the street. Rainwater harvesting is great protection if we ever get hit by that big earthquake or other natural disasters that cut off your water. Just throw in a water purification tablet and its fit to drink or boil it.
  • We install a wide range of water tanks, including the same tanks that the Wellington City Council promotes where you pick up from them and install yourself. We offer to pick up the tank for you which you, as you may not get the tank into your car and we install it next to a downpipe on level ground. Our eco plumber can install it further away for an additional cost.

  • Special Deal $199 to supply and install next to a downpipe on level ground. Wellington only. Call Now on 0800 484 353.

Rain Water Harvesting Can be Cheaper

Because of Wellington’s difficult topography, running long stormwater drains, and or installing soak pits, or soakage systems can be costly. Installing storage tanks to use the stormwater and later use it or garden irrigation can be cheaper, depending on the situation. Or even sending the water to the toilet system to flush toilets or wash cars can be cheaper than running drains.

Below are our standard 200 litre tanks installed in Wellington:

How it works. It filters out leaves and fills the tank to its inlet. We can fit a 1st flush which is an extra cost to a standard install.

Energy Reporting

  • Find out what you can do to save on energy costs.
  • Hot water conservation – Fitting a low-flow shower rose can cut energy bills considerably. Showers use around a third of the energy in your home. Inefficient shower roses can be expensive. You don’t have to discharge a lot of hot water to have a good shower.
  • Leak detection – Hot water leaks can cost a lot of money.
  • Heat transfer systems – Transferring heat to other rooms. Transferring heat to another part of the building is a lot cheaper than creating it.
  • Radiant heating is usually a lot more effective than convection heating.
  • Convection heating examples are oil heaters and electric fan heaters. These devices need to heat enormous volumes of room air to be effective before you feel the heat. With radiant heaters, you feel the heat almost immediately.
  • ECO Plumber Consulting – We inspect buildings and undertake to report on energy conservation and water-saving NZ wide.
  • Our Eco plumber can minimise your energy footprint.
