We create our initiatives for more sustainable local practices with vital resource water.

Aqua Work’s path for clean & healthy drinking water
Where we come from
After travelling the world, Steve Reynolds discovered that water is an essential resource and everywhere tasted different. Even in the Rodney District water could taste quite different due to the various water sources in the area: rainwater harvesting (tank water), mains water (mainly Auckland or bores and wells in Snells Beach and Algies Bay) or river, springs and creeks.
These observations triggered Steve’s interest in good drinking water quality. Combined with his previous agricultural experience in designing water filtration systems, the shift to residential, commercial and rural was consistent.
In 2000, Steve Reynolds founded Pure Water Services Ltd. In 2010 the model had changed, and Steve started the Rodney Service based company Pure Water Services North Ltd.
In 2013, Steve joined with Aqua Filter & Aqua Synergy Group and traded as Aqua Filter Rodney.
In 2018, Steve Reynolds launched an online water project Areyouthefilter.co.nz. It re-emphasises the urgent need to purify your water before you drink it and highlights the water pump repairs and maintenance side of the business that we now operate.
Where we are today
Steve and his team have been providing clean, safe drinking water since 2000. It had started like many other small Kiwi businesses; one person wanted better water quality and got a water filter. The customer was delighted with our service and product. Thus, he recommended us to his friends, and these in turn to their friends.
Following a bumpy start, our customer base has grown continuously to several thousand clients, around 50 different types of water filtration systems, UV filters and pumps, and an amazing team of six highly passionate and skilled employees. We all share similar values, enjoy working together and serve our customers and the community with great products and service.
Reliable and professional service, excellent and efficient products, awe for the vital source of water, and trustworthiness and loyalty of our customers have brought us to where we are today. Our success is based on the generosity of our local customers, some of whom have been regular customers for 20 years now.
2021 sees a full rebranding to Aqua Works which Steve and his team are very excited about. Our own brand, will give us the flexibility and agility to respond faster to market conditions and new product developments which ultimately is better for our customers.
Where are we going
Aqua Works ushers in a higher level of professionalism in our industry by bringing in certified plumbers and registered electricians in-house. This allows us to serve more customers with excellent products while improving customer service skills.
Changes in technology, more efficient water filtration systems, a greater emphasis on sustainable products and a general desire to do better than what we have been doing are food for thought and deserve our focus and attention.
We all want more efficient homes and workplaces that have safe, reliable water with minimal impact on the planet. Aqua Works plays an important role in connecting these desires and aspirations with practical application to make it all happen.
Taumata Arowai and the Water Services Act 2021 also brings exciting new opportunities. Better regulations and a new water regulator will help us deliver safer, potable water for our rural drinking water suppliers. We can help lead local businesses through these demanding and exciting changes.
In a nutshell, Aqua Works aims to offer its customers these leading energy-efficient products and services and to be at the forefront of new technologies.

Since August 2020, Michael has enriched our team. As a certified plumber who passed his certification (merit of excellence 2005), he manages our installation side of the business on filtration and water pumps as well as training the apprentices.
What Michael likes best about his job is that he is part of a knowledgeable, disciplined experienced team and works in a respectful and honest environment. He enjoys the freedom and confidence working with Steve to solve problems for the best benefit of our clients.

But for his two small children, there is still enough time for doing fun stuff together. Michael loves the laid-back lifestyle in Rodney, the beautiful beaches on both coasts and the fact that everyone seems to know each other.

Emma, electrical service technician
Our team is expanded by female power! One of the earliest gifts of 2021 is Emma, who has been actively supporting our service team since the beginning of the year. Although she started her pathway after high school down in Dunedin with a Bachelor of Science, major in Human Nutrition, minor in Clothing Textiles, Emma found her way back to Rodney. After a 5.5 year electrical apprenticeship, she is now with us as a Registered Electrician.
With her depth of knowledge and extensive commercial construction and maintenance experience, our passionate and determined female electrician enriches our service portfolio enormously. It also benefits you in return, as you now only need Aqua Works and do not need to hire a second company for your electrical issues.
She now only pursues her passion for nutrition and textiles in her spare time. Emma sews almost all her clothes, from skirts to coats. Only her work clothes are from us! But even those she could make herself without a doubt. And she loves to spoil her family whether with a Middleeast feast or a greek gourmet meal. Baking is also in her hands and her blood, but it has to be chocolatey.
Installing a new rain harvesting system and connecting it with your water tank, water pump and the main house, Emma follows the right technical and logical approach to solve it to your satisfaction. And if your hot water cylinder is causing problems, Emma will take care of these concerns too, just give her a call!

She returns home happy in the evening when the day has been efficiently planned, the service technicians have been busy throughout the day, and all customers’ enquiries have been answered.
Her British/Welsh roots show up in her passion for cars. She has been cruising around New Zealand in her 21-year-old MG convertible for 15 years. When she’s not busy with needlework, gardening or travelling the world, Raewyn organises events as social secretary of the local MG Group.
Whatever you have on your mind, Raewyn is approachable, reliable and committed to your requests. Give her a call today.

“Water is the most important food. The importance of its purity for our health is paramount. “
Tina, Digital Marketing Manager
Since September 2020, Tina has been taking care of our online digital presence. As Digital Marketing Manager, she ensures a professional positioning and good visibility of our company in the digital media. Whether it’s organising photoshoots, writing blog articles or setting up our commerce shop, Tina is always on the go with a lot of enthusiasm and her unmistakable German diligence and accuracy. After a long career in Human Resources in international positions, she moved to New Zealand in 2019 to study again at Otago University, Dunedin. With her extensive knowledge in Sustainable Business Management, she will leave one or two footprints in our company.
When she is not exploring New Zealand in her camper van Charlie, Tina loves to cook and bake for family and friends. She is doing quite well becoming a true Kiwi, wearing jandals, going fishing with her partner and his kids. She is pretty laid-back with most things but not with her insistence on good content, tone and style.
Aqua Work’s service commitment
The service concept is very close to our hearts. That is why our four full-time technicians and one scheduler do their best every day to ensure that you have the correct product at the right time and in the right place at your premises.
Responsibility & Community
Role in the 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 be a role model. 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.
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, organising local community festivals & organisations and the Boys Brigade/ ICONZ. In doing so, we also raise awareness about the importance of clean, healthy drinking water.
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-given 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.
We also take care of your old UV lamps and quartz sleeves and recycle them.
