Got Questions?

If you have any other questions in relation to your project or plumbing problem then please do not hesitate to contact us on 021 441 904  or send us a message below.  Most issues and projects are specific to the situation and require a more in depth discussion.

Wim is a Certifying Plumber, in New Zealand, sanitary plumbing work is restricted and can only be carried out by authorised tradespeople. The Certifying class is the highest qualification available. To learn more check out our blog.

Its always best to give us a call to discuss as every job and situation is different.  We can work on a charge up basis, provide an estimate, or a quote where possible. It also depends on your requirements as different pricing options can be given. For example you maybe looking for a quick, cost effective fix, or you may be wanting to treat yourself to a little luxury.

First off we would need to identify whether the water pressure is normal for the system or whether there has been an obvious decline over time.  If you have noticed a decline in water pressure, it could be due to galvanised pipes corroding to the point that water flow is greatly reduced, filters and strainers in taps needing to be cleaned or inlet valve failure to name a few.  All of which can be remedied.

However if you have a low water pressure hot water system in your house, and it’s just not performing to your liking, then in most cases it can be improved without necessarily going to the expense of a mains pressure conversion. Depending on what the issue is, solutions range from simply replacing your shower head, to installing a booster pump giving you increased pressure through the whole house. The best solution will vary from case to case.  

The first step would be to contact us to assess your needs and find the option that best works for you.

There are a number of things that need to be figured out and discussed before starting a renovation project.  Time frames, budget and design are important parts of any renovation. 


When do you want to start the job and how long will it take?

What will it cost and what does it depend on?

Will I require Council Consent  to do these changes?

Will all the fixtures I want fit inside this bathroom etc etc.

We have the experience to help you work through these questions.  We can also recommend other trades people that we have worked with in the past.  We can advise you on, and possibly source, some or all of the bathroom fixtures.  If you haven’t done it before it can be daunting and there are a lot of things that need to be decided upon early on to save you time and potentially money.  

Efficient, honest and reliable. From a complete re- plumbing of our bathroom, to fixing a blocked filter, Wim was always on time, getting whatever the job, done fast with no fuss. Would always recommend!

As a landlord, it is great to be able to trust and rely on a trade service. Wim has fixed several plumbing issues at my rental property. I can just leave out a key and rely on him to find the problem and fix it quickly. This is really important when you can’t always be on site. Highly recommended service.

Wim from Custom Plumbing Services is our go to plumber. He’s friendly, efficient and is very knowledgeable. He helped us out in a big way when we were about to go into lockdown for COVID-19. At the time we didn’t have a working laundry. We called Wim and he was more than happy to come and get our laundry sorted for us at a days notice. Not only that but while he was here we discovered a leaking pipe in our ceiling, which he also sorted out.
