“And, this year’s top prize goes to..”

There’s genuine satisfaction in getting recognition from your peers. It’s especially true when you’ve achieved something extraordinary in your field.

That recognition for innovative plumbing doesn’t come easily. It was not without a lot of hard graft, sleepless nights and steely focus. The clear simplicity of one plumbing product does not always match the huge impact it can have. Some of the most skilled tradespeople around agree.

Read on to find out more about why K-Valve scooped the prize for Product of the Year at the 2023 New Zealand Plumbing Awards held in Christchurch.

The 2023 Plumbing Product of the Year Award

This award recognises the significant contribution to plumbing product development. That’s by a company or individual in any of these divisions of the industry:

  • Plumbing
  • Gasfitting
  • Drain laying

The prestigious New Zealand Plumbing Awards get held annually. The Awards ceremony is the annual highlight of this busy and sometimes dangerous trade. They shine a light on the incredible achievements and work that businesses and individuals are doing across New Zealand.

The 2023 New Zealand Plumbing Awards winners were announced on Friday 5th May. This was the final night of the New Zealand Plumbing Conference at a gala dinner. Te Pae Convention Centre in Christchurch hosted the event.

This is the Oscars equivalent for an industry that is understandably in need of a little glitz and glamour from time to time. What makes it really special is that the shortlist and awards themselves get decided upon by experts. These are people who care passionately about this often-overlooked field of expertise.

A Product Everyone Can Benefit From

On top of that, all of us are likely to come into contact with some aspect of plumbing in our everyday lives. We’ve become so reliant on a steady supply of safe, fresh water and modern waste disposal that it’s easy for us to take both for granted.

Our dependence on plumbing is arguably even more important to us than wifi speed, efficient transport or even a stable power supply. Turn off your water source and life suddenly becomes incredibly difficult.

It’s, therefore, a real honour to get recognition for coming up with an innovative plumbing product. K-Valve can and does make a real difference to all plumbers’ efficiency and safety, including when they’re stormwater testing.

The mantra of Master Plumbers who organise the New Zealand Plumbing Awards is “Representing Excellence,” making K-Valve’s association with the organisation even more special.

Product Endorsement From the People Who Matter

Master Plumbers New Zealand supports its members in a raft of issues. These include whenever there are plumbing, gasfitting, stormwater testing and drain laying problems. The organisation understands the impact these concerns can have on plumbing businesses or public health and safety.

They know that their members play a vital role in protecting the health of New Zealanders. They do this by contributing to the safe delivery of clean water and the removal of waste.

“We support them in providing consumers with the highest quality sanitary plumbing, drainage and gas services through the Master Plumbers Quality Assurance programme,” they say. That now includes the endorsement of K-Valve, now the “must have” innovative plumbing product for all tradespeople.

All About K-Valve

K-Valve is a safe and highly effective testing and inspection device. We’ve designed it to consolidate testing sewerage and stormwater systems in all environments.

What makes K-Valve so unique is simplicity itself. It’s easy to install with the test plug able to control the flow of water through a simple quarter-turn relief valve. Using K-Valve has these key benefits:

  • It reduces the risk of injury during the testing process
  • It saves time and ends the need to carry endless types of testing kit
  • It creates water-saving opportunities

K-Valve is a fully accredited innovative plumbing product to AS/NZS 1260. It has its patent and is ready to enhance any plumbing business through time and cost savings.

More traditional plumbing testing plugs like certain inflatable balls are far less efficient. For instance, plumbers need to carry the right tools with them to use them correctly.

These types of plugs are typically not repairable and may only last for a minimal amount of tests. And, the whole testing process can become more time-consuming whenever there’s a leak. Plumbers get to use K-Valve over and over again as we’ve designed K-Valve to last.
