Troy Parker

“Aqua Works profoundly cares about its customers and the community we are all a part of to provide safe drinking water. “

Troy, registered tradesman plumber

Troy Parker

As our in-house Registered Tradesman Plumber at Aqua Works, Troy looks after our new builds, installations and services water filtration systems, rainwater harvesting systems, water pumps and hot water cylinders. He is a local who perfectly understands the various water sources in the Rodney district. Troy is proficient and well-experienced with the water’s challenges in residential and commercial applications, whether Silica scale in Snells Beach, harder water in Warkworth or fluoride mains water in Orewa.

Personally, he loves to get the best of both worlds – being semi-rural with plenty of beaches and farms. In addition, the close-knit and caring Rodney community makes him and his family feel safe in all aspects of daily life. Being outdoors with his wife, two little boys, and two kittens keeps him busy and happy when not repairing a leaking hot water cylinder in a Warkworth family home. He is a supportive and playful Dad, always on the run to have some fun with them and a good laugh with his friends.

Straight after graduating from Mahurangi College, Troy gained his first work experience working with his cousin. He started to give him a hand for a week doing some plumbing. A week turned into a month, and finally, he was offered an apprenticeship in plumbing. Being a qualified registered plumber since 2015, Troy has a wealth of knowledge. Applying smart plumbing with proven technologies, he answers your requests dependably and efficiently. Just give him a call!

Aqua Works Richard Platt

Richard Platt

Hailing from a little seaside town in the UK, Rich’s journey has been as diverse as the skills he brings to our company. With 12 years of experience as a chef, running various kitchens and training teams nationwide, he then made a leap to the world of drainlaying and drains in New Zealand for the past 8 years. 

In his transition to Aqua Works, his primary responsibility is the service of our UV filtration systems, whole house water filters, underbench filter systems, and repairs. What sets Richard apart is his dedication to pride in his work. He thrives in an environment where there’s no room for excuses, no hiding behind others, and every job demands accountability. With his genuine and authentic character, Rich has high standards of conduct, communication, and punctuality and is committed to doing things correctly. He enjoys the problem-solving aspect of the job and finds parallels with his previous experiences, although it’s a different trade. 

Outside work, Rich is a family man, amusingly a giant, scary monster to his 3-year-old daughter, his newborn boy just discovering the world and taking charge of the kitchen after a long day at work. His love for Mexican cuisine and wind-based activities like kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, and skiing reflect his diverse interests and adventurous spirit. Living West of Warkworth, Rich appreciates our friendly small-town vibe and sees it as a perfect blend of rural charm with top-class eateries in a relaxed atmosphere.

Jakob Reynolds

Jakob is learning the water pump, filtration and treatment trade as he starts his plumbing and drainlaying apprenticeship. As a Snells Beach local, he has a high appreciation of the land and thus the water quality and is also an integral part of our local community.

Jakob is a jack of all trades at Aqua Works. He can wriggle in small spaces, which is helpful for plumbing issues and repairing water pumps. But, Jakob has also been changing water filters since he was a 5-year-old boy. Therefore, he knows all the small and big challenges this job might bring. Onsite, our customers love his courteous, friendly manners and appreciate Jakob’s analytical thinking skills when assisting with challenging plumbing problems.

Music plays a crucial role in his free time. Jakob has taught drumming for years and continues to qualify at the Trinity Rock & Pop to achieve all 8 grades. He also plays the bass and electric guitar, often joining a local band. Another passion is fast cars, spending weekends with our local Lemons & Nazcar endurance racing team. He has been driving diggers, cars and anything with wheels from a young age. Using his passion for machines, he operates our digger proficiently when carrying out drainlaying and earthworks jobs at your property.

Karl’s commitment to the business and team player role was commendable. His friendly and respectful manners, combined with his vast experience, quickly earned him the trust of our customers. We will miss Karl’s love for his job, genuine care for our clients, and the personal touch he put into every job. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for his eight years of outstanding service.

Warren Coop

We sadly announce Warren’s departure from our team as he embarks on a new chapter in Waharoa due to private matters. Warren, our dedicated water pump specialist and service technician, infused our workplace with a passion for healthy living and technical expertise.

Originally from Warkworth, his background in farming, sawmilling, and various roles showcased his diverse skill set, particularly in troubleshooting and pump operations. Warren’s friendly and approachable nature and commitment to finding optimal solutions made him an integral part of our efficient and trustworthy team. We express our gratitude for Warren’s invaluable contributions and wish him the best in his future endeavours in Waharoa.

Aqua Work’s service commitment

Excellent service is close to our hearts. That is why our four full-time technicians, plumbers, sales guru and scheduler do their best to ensure that you have the correct product at the right time and in the right place at your premises.

Responsibility & Community

Aqua Works plays an active role in our community. Being a local business in Rodney, it is natural for us to employ locals, to buy and service our vehicles locally and to support our local businesses when going out for lunch or getting a coffee.

We create and maintain close relationships with our employees, customers and neighbours. Our goal is to inspire others and build our community together. By increasing our spending, the local economy will be nourished, and everyone will benefit.

Being known for our honest, trustworthy advice, we are adapting our solutions to the budget and requirements of the community, especially in these difficult times. We all love to live here and be part of this friendly and vibrant community.

Giving back

Making a difference within and beyond our workspace, we are committed to empowering and strengthening local community groups by supporting Springboard Community Trust, Hospice, Westpac Rescue Helicopter, and One Mahurangi.

We assist in serving on school boards, help organise local community events and have helped run the local Boys Brigade/ ICONZ unit. Contribution personally and as a business in our local community means we all ultimately benefit.

We believe that when we are mutually supportive and serve each other, people will connect, and our Rodney community will benefit and prosper.

As a purpose-driven business, we want to be able to give back and “make a difference” in the lives of others.


At Aqua Works, sustainability is a central part of the way we operate and work together. We provide our customers with smart, sustainable water filtration systems to deliver potable drinking water at your home and business.

Our initiative “Aqua Refill – not Landfill” aims to reduce plastic pollution in the Rodney district. We want to shift every household, school and business from plastic bottles to reusable and refillable bottles.

Bring your plastic bottles, and we will dispose of them properly. Come to our showroom in Warkworth and pick up a refillable water bottle.

Additionally, we take care of your old UV lamps and quartz sleeves and recycle them.
