Central Heating

Keep your home and family warm during the winter months! When it comes to home heating, talk to us about your options.

We specialise in the following:

  • Hydronic underfloor heating (in-slab pipes)
  • Radiators
  • Boilers
  • Wood fires
  • Maintenance

Hydronic underfloor heating (in-slab pipes)

Radiant heat through your home is the most comfortable form of heating. Your house warms right through to the solid objects such as the floor, walls, and furniture. The warmed mass then radiates the heat back to your body giving you that warming sensation. This works particularly well because you are not relying on heated air temperatures which easily escape your home.

Heat sources for this work can be diesel, wood-fired, gas boiler or Air to Water Heat Pump (ATWHP).


These are particularly good in retrofit installations for homes that need a quick heat up due to poor insulation in the walls, or even for well insulated new homes if you are after a fast response time for your radiant heat.


We supply, install and service almost all types of boilers such as wood fired, diesel and Air to Water Heat Pump (ATWHP).

Wood fires

We can supply and install your new wood fire whether it is a free standing or inbuilt model in your new home or alteration. Wetback options for hot water heating are always an option.


All heating systems should have an annual service to prevent those annoying breakdowns.

Heating Maintenance & Service

Laser Plumbing Taupo have been committed to the Taupo region since our operation began in 1998 and as such are committed to your heating requirements too.

We have access to specialist suppliers ensuring that we can always offer you the latest in technology and trends. This allows us to offer you the latest in hydronic under floor heating systems, radiator heating systems, solar hot water systems and fireplace installations.

Radiators have been installed at Laser Plumbing Taupo's workshop at 3/41 Runanga Street, Taupo. Call in anytime for a look to see how awesome and efficient they are. Our admin team even have them installed under their desks!

Please contact Laser Plumbing Taupo to discuss your heating requirements.

Solar Heating

Why not utilise the natural energy provided by the sun? Laser Plumbing Hamilton West can design and install a solar hot water system for your home or office that can save you money on your power bill while being environmentally friendly. We serve clients across the Waikato region.

Solar panels produce no noise or emissions and have a long life expectancy. You will also reduce your environmental impact by lowering harmful greenhouse emissions used by electric and gas water heating systems.

What are the benefits of solar?

  • Clean, free, renewable energy
  • Quiet operation
  • Cost effective
  • Reliable, long life & low maintenance systems
  • Retrofitting - can be fitted to most existing electric or gas storage systems

We can assist you in finding the right solar hot water system to meet your requirements. Contact us today for a local and dependable advice for your solar needs.

Waste Water Treatment

Laser Plumbing Taupo is committed to helping you save water and reduce the costs of your water bill.

A properly designed and installed waste water treatment system works quietly and cleans without you even knowing what it does.

When it comes to waste water it needs to be designed, treated and dispersed on your property via a pumped dripper line. The design needs to meet local authority nitrogen reduction levels and disperse without ponding or smells.

Laser Plumbing Taupo are the local agents for Advantex Waste Water Treatment Systems. We supply and install tanks, pumps and equipment by Innoflow Technologies.

Drainage & drainlaying

Drainage and drainlaying is a major part of the nation’s health. In fact the New Zealand government classifies plumbers and drainlayers as health technicians which mean we fall under the same licensing category as the medical industry, requiring annual up-skilling and credits to renew our license.

When building a new home you need to lay new drain pipes to remove both storm water and sewerage. We can assist with all your drainlaying needs, from the initial planning and design through to the physical excavation and laying of pipes.

Home renovations, alterations or extensions are likely to require some modification to the way in which the drains of your existing home are laid.

The design of your new drainage system, installation and replacement can all be done by our professional team.

Maintaining your existing drainage will avoid blocked drains which can cause damage to your home. Drain inspections and maintenance can help to avoid costly repair jobs. Regular drain checks and cleaning can be performed using our camera and hydroblast jet unit.

If existing drains do become blocked, leak or even burst, you can rely on Laser Plumbing to inspect the problem, advise on a course of action and make the repair.

We provide all of these drainage services to all customers, big or small, residential, commercial and industrial.

Leaking Pipes

If you find yourself with a leaky pipe, or even worse a burst pipe, you are going to need a plumber with experience to come and fix or replace the pipe.

The first problem with a pipe leak is the location. If you know the location of the leak then the plumber will know where to start. If you know that you have a leak but are unsure where it is coming from, the plumber is going to need to find the source of the leak. Without the right equipment and knowledge this can be a long hard task. Luckily, the Laser Plumbing Taupo team is equipped with the latest technology and expert knowledge and experience.

Once the location of the leak has been found you will need to get access to the pipe. This may be very simple, but it may be a more difficult task, such as under the bathtub, requiring time to gain access without creating more damage to your pipes and surrounding walls or floors.

Once the plumber has access to the leak they will assess the severity of it. You may have some idea as to how bad the leak is even before the plumber gets there by looking at how much water has physically leaked out from the pipe. An assessment will then be made on the best way to proceed.

The leak may need to be repaired or replaced depending on the level of damage. To prevent further damage a replacement is a safer option. This will likely be a better and more permanent solution to the problem at hand.

It is important that you get any pipe leaks repaired or replaced before any further damage is done. Some leaks may have been there a long time and not causing too much harm. However, they may be slowly causing damage to gib board and other building materials, and prolonged leaking may cause extensive damage requiring building materials to be replaced. Another concern with leaky pipes is the water getting into any nearby wiring or lights. In this instance you should still book a plumber before they progress and cause larger problems. A hot water pipe leak can be very costly to your power bill, so this should be fixed as soon as possible to avoid paying those additional costs.

If you have a big leak or a burst pipe, you should contact Laser Plumbing Taupo immediately.

Roofing / Spouting Repairs

Do you have a leaking roof? We find leaks and we fix them!

We can take care of all residential and commercial maintenance roofing work including:

  • Spouting and guttering
  • Downpipes and flashing work
  • Roof leak locate and repair

Fire Installs / Chimney Sweeps

Laser Plumbing Taupo can source and install just about any brand of fireplace that you want, so you are not limited with your choice.

If you have an existing fireplace, we can help to upgrade the model to a more efficient and reliable one. We specialise in:

  • New installations
  • Wet back installations and maintenance
  • Repairs and maintenance
  • Bricks and baffles
  • Flue replacements

Local authorities may require an application for a building consent to be lodged and approved prior to the installation of a new or a replacement fire. This involves lodging in duplicate a floor plan, manufacturer’s specification and installation instructions, hearth details and detail of where the flue is passing through floor, ceiling and roof and certified position of smoke alarms, together with a producer statement giving the name and installer number of a certified installer and the appropriate fee.

Get prepared for winter! Did you know we do chimney sweeps?

Yep, it’s a mucky and dangerous job so leave it to the professionals. We not only sweep the chimney but check over the flue, bricks and glass to ensure everything is running effectively for when you first light your fire. We service single storey homes to two storey homes. Prices vary for these.

Don't leave it to the last minute as we get very busy with these requests.

Specialised Equipment

In addition to our workshop premises, we are equipped with a range of specialised equipment. This ensures we carry out specialised work that is effective and efficient. We work closely with our key suppliers to ensure you are getting the best quality products on the market at competitive prices. We are continually researching the latest innovative products available and we will always recommend the best plumbing solution for your job.

We have the following equipment for use:

45M Fibre optic drainage camera

We have available a fibre optic drainage camera for inspecting and fault finding those broken drain connections and penetrating tree roots. It has a compact tube shaped camera for easy insertion as well as the capability of capturing pictures in narrow surroundings.

Call us for a drain inspection any time, it may end up saving you money.

Hydro Blast Jet Unit

In 2012, we purchased a mobile high pressure jet drain cleaning unit which is equipped with a 45 metre hose, perfect for unblocking those stubborn drains.

2.0 Tonne Digger

Need more than a shovel? Our digger will see you right! Perfect for digging new effluent fields, trenches or drains. If you have a drain that needs replacing or a new drain to be layed, then using our digger is perfect for the job. It will cut down on time, making the job more efficient. All operators are fully trained and competent.
