Solar panel servicing

As well as being licensed plumbers, Eco Plumber & Gasfitter are among the few capable and experienced solar hot water technicians that service the Bay. This experience is especially valuable in the sunny Bay of Plenty.

In-Depth Experience with Solar Hot Water

Our team has the benefit of many solar hot water installations using a wide variety of brands, systems and components.

We’ve found broad exposure to different solar systems, alongside solid plumbing and technical knowledge, is the only path to effectively designing, installing, troubleshooting, repairing or servicing solar hot water systems.

We partner directly with Solahart to bring their tried-and-tested solar hot water panels to our Bay of Plenty customers. Solahart offers the most reliable and proven roof-mounted water heating units suitable for connection to your home hot water system. Different versions of each unit are available, with one more suited to coastal properties, and another being better for properties in elevated areas.

Eco Plumber & Gasfitter is also a proud service agent for GreenGlo and Edwards systems.

Bespoke, Experience-Based Approach

We have developed a comprehensive servicing checklist for solar hot water systems over the years. We apply all our experience and plumbing knowledge while servicing these complex systems, and as a result, we are able to ensure their reliability, efficiency and safety.

Eco Plumber & Gasfitter technicians are knowledgeable of the issues, specific and general, that solar hot water owners face as their systems age. Seals and joiners perish and need replacing with time, especially on the hot side of the circuit where constant heating and cooling cycles take place. Roof mounts can loosen over the years, which can lead to water ingress in your home. Closed-loop systems need regular inspection of recirculating fluid quality, while open-loop systems should be checked for sediment buildup and corrosion from hard or soft waters.

Wide Service Area – Trusted Across the Bay

Due to our special expertise, we service a wide area for all solar hot water installation and servicing requests, ranging across the Bay of Plenty from Waihi to Tauranga to Whakatane.

We wish to acknowledge the awesome service provided right before Christmas Eve. Very grateful for your willingness to accept the job and get it done – which meant our son and family could enjoy a well-deserved holiday with running water!!! Please pass on our appreciation to the staff as well. We will be recommending your business.

We have had Dale to our place three times - underfloor heating problems, gas hot water issues and a stove service. Each time he arrived at said time and explained everything as he fixed the issues. Great communication and would highly recommend. Thanks.

I booked Eco Plumber to relace a shower rose. Due to a change with one of their appointments. They came the same day I booked them. Brilliant service. Prompt. Took all the discarded bits with them. Very fair charge. I will use their service again.
