About Us

Lewis Plumbing Team

The Lewis Plumbing Company is locally owned and operated and has serviced the Rotorua and surrounding areas since 1992. Our years of local experience and the work we have been involved in encompasses all forms of general plumbing maintenance from spouting repairs and replacement, to blocked drains and waste pipe repairs, through to leaking taps, pipe work and fittings.

A good analogy for The Lewis Plumbing Company is if it’s anything to do with water, we can repair, replace, design and install. We have varied and extensive plumbing experience in new domestic dwellings, from low cost housing to high quality homes through to commercial developments from minor alterations to major building developments. If you stand on the roundabout on Tutanekai and Whakaue Street in Rotorua and look at every multi story building over two levels in view, we have either been the main plumbing contractor or undertaken a major portion of the plumbing work on the properties you can see.

All of our plumbing staff hold current licenses from the Plumbers, Gasfitters & Drainlayers Board. Our company culture is to provide exceptional customer service and satisfaction and to achieve this we up skill our staff and systems to meet the developing demands of the industry and our clients. We maintain professional affiliations with the Rotorua Chamber of Commerce, Master Plumbers Gasfitters & Drainlayers Association Inc, Rotorua Master Builders Association Inc, Site Safe New Zealand, Water New Zealand and Standards New Zealand.

For clients of The Lewis Plumbing Company we maintain 24hr, 7 day care. The Lewis Plumbing Company has the staff, the technology, the systems, the competence and the reputation to successfully meet our client’s requirements.
