scott bowater plumber & gas fitter

Over 30 years of great service and knowledge


Are you looking for a Certifying Plumber or Certifying Gasfitter in the Kāpiti area who really knows their stuff?

My name is Scott Bowater and I was born into the plumbing trade.  I’ve been a Certifying Plumber and Gasfitter for over 30 years, providing my clients with great customer service and support.

My father started in Plumbing in the ’50’s up in Palmerston North, back when a plumbers skill-set  was much broader than today.  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 up-skilling (a good thing) is a requirement by the Plumbers Gasfitters and Drainlayers 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  pride myself on doing a great job, for a fair price.  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.
