Dux Qest was introduced in the mid-late 1970’s as one of the first plastic plumbing products to replace copper plumbing, and is notorious for spontaneously failing and causing leaks throughout homes – this is one product you do not want in your home.

Within 10 years the product hit the headlines as it began to fail in homes across New Zealand.

Dux Qest is black in colour and can be difficult to distinguish from other black polybutylene plumbing. The tell-tale sign is that you can often find “Qest Dux” written in white on the pipe, however, this has been known to rub off so it is not always a reliable way of identifying the plumbing.

The product has caused so many problems across New Zealand that many insurance companies are now refusing to cover any damage resulting from the splitting and leaking of these pipes. Our strong recommendation is to have all your Dux Qest replaced as soon as possible to avoid further damage to your walls and framing if a pipe fails. Call us for a quote and we can get one of our Nelson plumbers out to you fast!

While we sometimes tolerate a leaking toilet cistern for a long time, the cumulative effect is to significantly increase your water bill over a period of time.

Sometimes the fix can be easy, and at other times the entire cistern mechanism needs to be replaced. Either way, it’s better to get the repair done earlier rather than later to avoid those high water bills.

If, when your home was built, an in-wall cistern was installed, it may be necessary to open up the wall to complete the repair.

Fortunately, we have gib stoppers and painters within the same team, so we can handle the entire job for you.

Call our team of Nelson plumbers who are experts at fixing leaking toilet cisterns.

Old pipes, earthquakes, land subsidence, heavy vehicle traffic, tree roots and a raft of other factors can create problems with underground water mains, and we would find ourselves repairing or replacing someone’s water main pipes every week of the year.

Sometimes, when owners have had multiple leaks repaired over a number of years, it’s more economic to replace the entire water main pipe rather than continuing to call your local plumbers out to repair sections of the pipe.

In addition, there will be higher water bills to cover if the leaks continue unabated for some time.

If it has been necessary to dig up your driveway to replace or repair the pipe, we can also reseal or re-concrete the driveway and ensure it looks nice again.

Stormwater, greywater (from your sinks), and sewer line pipes that get blocked are a normal part of the working day for our Nelson plumbers and Nelson drainlayers.

There are a variety of causes – a collapsed pipe due to heavy vehicle traffic or tree roots, foreign objects becoming lodged in the pipes, and we have the machinery to be able to clear the pipes if it’s tree roots or foreign objects that can be dislodged. If we need to replace some or all of the drains, we can deploy a drain camera to ensure we don’t dig unnecessarily.

Please ensure that you don’t put wet wipes or sanitary pads down the toilet – they will eventually block the pipes and then you will need to call us.

Nelson Plumbers FAQs

Generally, it is the heating element and/or the thermostat that has failed.

That’s an electrician’s job. If it’s the element, it normally takes between one to two hours to drain the cylinder, replace the element, and refill the cylinder.

At the same time, the electrician will test the thermostat to make sure it’s functioning properly.

My hot water cylinder element is fine, but I’m still not getting the water that’s very hot coming from the hot tap.

There’s a variety of causes but generally, we are able to solve the problem within an hour – possibly two.

Particularly over summer, insects climb down the overflow vent that sticks up above your roof and gets lodged in the hot water tank.

Over time they end up being carried through the plumbing system and sometimes get stuck in the showerhead.

We will remove and clean the showerhead, and also put a filter on top of your hot water tank overflow pipe so insects can’t get in.

In Nelson, there are many homes at high elevation that struggle to get good mains pressure.

Normally we can boost your water pressure for just under $1000, which should give you a delightfully high-pressure shower throughout the year.

Sadly, yes. It’s not a great product and on a regular basis, we will get calls from customers who have had the pipe split in the wall cavity, causing problems with the timber framing and walls.

This becomes even more of a hazard if it occurs when you’re away from the house for an extended period of time.

We are frequently called to re-pipe a house with modern piping to avoid the likelihood of damage caused by faulty pipes. We can quote a full re-pipe for you.

All our visits have a minimum charge of one hour – by the time our plumber has driven to your property, got his tools and parts from the van, done the job and packed up again, it’s an hour that we don’t have him available for another customer.

However, if the job is a quick one, we suggest you get him to attend to, on the same visit, any other plumbing jobs you may have been saving for a while.

Even if it’s replacing washers on other taps, including your outside taps.

Yes, each of the plumbers on our team are either Registered or Certifying plumbers as required by the NZ Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board.

We do not employ an apprentice or unregistered plumbers.
