- Electric hot water cylinder
- Gas continuous flow units
- Gas storage hot water cylinder
- Hot water heat pumps
- Solar water heating
- Hot water installations and servicing
Choosing a highly efficient system that uses renewable energy, such as the sun's heat or electricity (which is about 80% renewable on average) reduces the environmental impact of your hot water use.
Electric hot water cylinder
Electric hot water cylinders are the most common form of water heating in New Zealand.
The system uses an electric element to heat the stored water in an insulated tank or cylinder. To stop legionnaires' disease, hot water cylinders must be regularly heated to at least 60 degrees Celsius to prevent the growth of legionella bacteria.
What are the benefits of electric hot water cylinders?
- Will hold water for several hours in the event of a power cut
- Great for households with low to moderate hot water usage
- Many older hot water cylinders have limited insulation which can cause heat loss at a faster rate than newer cylinders.
We recommend that your hot water cylinders are serviced by one of our experienced plumbers every few years to ensure the efficiency and prolong the life of your cylinder.
Gas continuous flow
Gas continuous flow heats water as you need it, so you will never run out of hot water.
Gas continuous flow systems can be heated through natural gas or LPG. They are very cost effective and energy efficient due to the nature of only heating up water when it is needed.
What are the benefits of gas continuous flow?
- Supply of hot water never runs out
- No requirement to keep water hot when not in use - more cost effective and energy efficient
- Easily adjustable temperature
- Saves on space - no need for a cylinder, so useful where space is limited
Gas hot water heaters use a califont which burns gas to heat the water instantly: when you turn on the hot tap, the califont sparks up, heating the water on demand as it flows through the system. The amount of hot water is limitless and the temperature can be set so you don't need to add a lot of cold water.
Solar water heating
Solar radiation is a renewable source of energy, it is non-polluting on the environment and it is free.
Solar water heating uses the sun's rays to heat water, which is then stored in an insulated hot water tank. On a less sunny day, the system may need back-up heating, usually provided by electricity or gas.
What are the benefits of solar?
- Clean, free, renewable energy
- Quiet operation
- Cost effective
- Reliable, long life and low maintenance systems
- Retrofitting - can be fitted to most existing electric or gas storage systems
Solar water heating uses the sun's rays for heating water which is then stored in a hot water tank, the same way as electric heating, which is then ready to use in the bathroom, kitchen, garage, laundry and anywhere else that you use hot water within your home.
We 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 specialise in the installation of solar water heating and are approved solar installers. We also provide solar pool heating services and products.
Fire Sprinkler Systems
Over 90% of fires are controlled through the use of sprinkler system.
At Laser Plumbing Te Puke, we have the expertise and knowledge to design and install a fire sprinkler system to keep your home or business safe in the event of a fire.
How do they work?
Fire sprinklers are actually not triggered by smoke, but instead triggered by heat. When a fire starts, it quickly heats the air directly above it. This air rises and is pushed out to either side when it hits the ceiling. As this hot air reaches a sprinkler head, that sprinkler head is activated. This means any water damage is limited to where the fire started, not your whole home.
Most sprinkler heads are equipped with a glass trigger filled with a glycerin-based liquid that expands at the appropriate temperature, breaking the glass and activating the sprinkler head. The sprinkler head is attached to a system of pipes that are hidden behind the walls or ceiling. These pipes wind through the building and outside to connect with a reliable water source.
When the sprinkler head is triggered, a valve to the pipe system is opened, releasing the water that is kept under pressure from the pipes. The water is quickly pushed out of the pipes through the sprinkler head, spraying water downward and out to the sides. This carefully designed spray of water extinguishes the fire below and prevents it from spreading.
Since each sprinkler head is automatically triggered by fire-specific temperature, just one or two sprinklers can quickly extinguish and/or contain a fire to the room where it started and cause little property damage. And because sprinklers use about six times less water than a fire hose, they're actually less harmful to your property than a visit from the fire department.
Here at Laser Plumbing Te Puke, we have our own qualified fire sprinkler system designer. Once designed we install a fire sprinkler system into your home, whether it be a new build or an existing home anywhere across the Bay of Plenty region.
When you require maintenance and servicing for your home, we will be there when you need us.
Gas fire and appliance servicing
As like most appliances, it is important that gas fires and appliances are regularly serviced to prolong the life of the appliance. Servicing ensures appliances and fires will continue to run as effectively and efficiently as possible.
Gas fireplaces are known for being efficient and low maintenance, but they cannot be neglected to ensure the long life of your fireplace. We recommend servicing all gas fires, once a year, in the warmer months, before winter arrives.
Gas appliances tend to be used almost daily throughout the year with cooking, heating and hot water. Due to the use of these, a service will detect any issues or malfunctions before they become a bigger problem. A service will also ensure they safety of your appliances by checking for any leaks or carbon monoxide build up. We recommend servicing all gas appliances once a year for residential and twice a year for any commercial use.
A service will check that the products of combustion in your gas units are carbon dioxide, not carbon monoxide from incorrect combustion. On a non flued appliance this can be deadly as carbon monoxide is known as the silent killer.
Wood Fire Services
Wood fire servicing is required to ensure the fire burns correctly. Damaged door or glass seals will continue to let oxygen into the fire. This results in not dampening the fire down and doesn’t allow the fire to burn for long periods. Visual inspection will show any damage or cracks in the fire box and flue seams, which can be repaired or replaced before it becomes dangerous.
We recommend servicing your wood fire once a year.
Depending on the type of wood in your fire, your flue may need cleaning once or twice a year. The flue being cleaned at the end of each fire season will ensure that the flue draws correctly to prevent chimney fires, caused by the build-up of soot or creosote in the flue. If creosote mixes with water this can become acidic and can cause premature corrosion within the flue and fire box. The blockage of flues or faulty seals can also cause odour in the house which can be quite pungent. It is important to note that many insurance companies will investigate whether your fire has been serviced and cleaned regularly if you suffer from a chimney fire. A regular service can also ensure that the fire meets it clearances and that it still complies with its requirements.
To ensure the long life of your fire, we recommend having a chimney sweep once a year.

"Had a burst pipe somewhere underfloor in the bathroom, rang them and got someone who put it through as urgent. Received a call an hour after saying they were on their way even though the receptionist said they were really busy. I live in Paengaroa so outside of Te Puke so I was very happy to get dealt with so soon. The chap came out and was really nice he was happy to go down our small narrow space under house and sorted the problem immediately. No hassles no fuss and the bill wasn't exorbitant. Really happy overall, thank you."
