Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q1. How much does a plumber cost in New Zealand?

The cost of a plumber in New Zealand will depend on a range of factors. The level of skill and expertise required on your plumbing job, how many plumbers and gas fitters are needed, and how long the work will take are all part of the calculation. Most plumbers will also have a minimum charge. When you connect with a plumber through Plumber Coop, you’ll always get a free quote first before deciding to go ahead.

Q4. What are the different types of water heater I can fit in my new home?

Water heaters don’t have to be a drain on your energy usage. There are energy-efficient hot water cylinders you can opt for. Solar-powered systems are the most environmentally friendly, followed by heat pump systems. You can also install a gas or electric hot water system, either instant or cylinder systems. One of our team can work with you to choose the right one for your new home.

Q2. How do I unblock my drains?

Blocked drains can be a nightmare, whether inside or outside your home. They smell and can even cause damage or burst pipes if left unchecked. Our drainage services will get any blockage removed fast, inspect for any damage that needs fixing, and give your drains a good clean at the same time.

Q5. What commercial plumbing services do you offer?

You want your business to work as efficiently as possible, so downtime due to blocked toilets in your cafe or a burst pipe on your factory floor is less than ideal. Our commercial plumbers are experienced in all types of commercial hot water and heating systems and understand the enhanced levels of health and safety required in commercial premises. They’ll keep disruption to a minimum and work to get your operations back to full tilt ASAP.

Q3. How often should plumbing maintenance be carried out?

You should get a servicing for your hot water and central heating at least once a year, commercial customers may require it more regularly.

Q6. I've received a letter about backflow prevention on my property, what next?

If you have a letter from Christchurch City Council telling you to install a backflow prevention valve, we have plumbers who can help. You’ll have the request because your property has been assessed as a backflow risk – usually it’s commercial customers who work with hazardous materials but it can be anywhere in the city.
