Servicing the Kapiti Coast

Need a plumber now?

It's a Family thing!

Hi…  My name is Scott Bowater and I was born into the plumbing trade.  My Dad, Kevin started his business in the ’50’s up in Palmerston North, back when a plumbers skill-set  was much broader than today.  This is how I was taught when I started in the trade over 25 years ago.  His business is still a landmark in Palmy, and is still in the family.

The trade is much different today, Craftsman is now ‘Certifying’, regular upskilling (a good thing) is a requirement by our board,  and many of the disciplines that were once the domain of plumbers are now farmed out to specialists.

As someone who has grown through these changes I offer my clients a vast depth of knowledge, a great work ethic and good old fashioned customer service.  I don’t really embrace technology (my wife helps with this!), but I do pride myself on getting a good job done without feeling the need to rip people off.  I stand by my work and understand that a happy client is the best advertising!


I am a Hot Water Specialist.  I know how to get the most out of your existing system.   I design, install & repair mains/low pressure systems.  I install Wetback & Solar hot water systems.  I have working at heights certification, light industrial experience,  all delivered with great customer service.


I am a Certifying Gasfitter, qualified to install  gas water heaters, fires, hospitality equipment, hobs and gas bottle stations.  I can fully pipe out homes or business’ for natural gas or lpg.


Nothing beats a long hot soak in the outdoors in my opinion.  So designing and building outdoor bathrooms is an area I particularly enjoy.  I can work with you to develop an outdoor room where the sky is the limit – literally!  I work with new and recycled materials.



Most Tradespeople have a special something they do.  I design acoustic sound solutions, especially for live music venues (but not limited to).  Improve customer and staff experience by reducing sound reflection.  Contact me for further information.
