  • Checking fixings to ensure everything is securely fastened
  • Checking leaf diverters and silt traps out (if applicable)
  • Clearing line strainers
  • Ensuring pump and filtration devices are working correctly
  • Running the system between mains and pump, checking the change over valve
  • IQP Backflow testing
  • For re-use systems: checking the pump controller and black flow valve is operating to standard

Stormwater Management

Got a stormwater challenge that needs solving? Let’s solve it! 

As the impacts of climate change become increasingly evident, governments and councils are placing greater pressure on businesses to make sustainable decisions. At Watersmart, we provide the support architects, engineers, developers and others need to meet these demands. Whether it’s obtaining resource consent, complying with ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) criteria, or meeting climate standards based on the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), our team has the expertise to help you succeed.

We’ve got solutions!

Our stormwater management solutions are hassle-free even for the toughest sites

With sections becoming smaller, stormwater attenuation becomes more challenging. Traditional stormwater solutions are no longer cutting it. Watersmart provides innovative alternatives, even for difficult sites that could not otherwise be developed.

You can rely on our team to design, supply, install and service the perfect stormwater system tailored to your needs.


The Stormwater Attenuation Process

As permeable grass is turned into concrete and steel, rain has to go somewhere. If it’s not soaking into the grass, it needs to be accounted for.

Rain that used to fall on green areas now falls on roofs and paved surfaces, where it’s pumped into stormwater pipes at a much faster rate. Our streams and rivers are under pressure from the additional run-off, as is the infrastructure of the city.

Stormwater attenuation looks at returning the situation to neutrality as if the rain was still falling on green areas, even after we’ve built homes, patios and driveways. A Civil Engineer works out the flow of water that will come off these surfaces and how much storage is required to account for the difference.

This is called Stormwater Management Area Flow (SMAF). By reusing some of the water and releasing the excess slowly into the stormwater system (detention), you can reduce the load on infrastructure and protect sensitive areas.

Water is held (detained) long enough to control the flow of stormwater into rivers and streams, helping to protect vulnerable waterways.

Rainwater Harvesting

Comply with council requirements and meet the obligations of the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS)

We’re a team of water experts who help you navigate the often challenging council requirements. At the heart of our mission is a desire to secure a sustainable water future. To help you achieve greater water security and conservation, we provide systems to harvest rainwater, manage stormwater, and recycle and reuse water. Our solutions are cutting-edge and designed to help you achieve your homestar ratings and meet your ETS obligations. With us by your side, you can rest assured that your sustainability goals are not only within reach but also cost-effective and easy to implement.

Develop future-proof developments for residents to enjoy lower water costs and greater security

Much has changed in recent years. Filling the pool, kids running through sprinklers, washing the car and boat, watering the garden and cleaning the house and deck… all require one thing – water!

But turning on the tap isn’t a given anymore, as we can no longer take water supply for granted. Today, we have practical, cost-effective options for creating sustainable developments that maximise water collection, reuse, and recycling.

Combining systems provides multiple benefits and maximises water savings. For example, our rainwater harvesting systems can reduce water costs by up to 56%. When combined with our water recycling systems, which can save up to 45% on tap water and up to 45% on wastewater, the savings are next level!

No need to be concerned about unsightly and bulky water tanks – our innovative designs, including underground and slimline water tanks, are the perfect solution for even the smallest sites.

Rainwater is typically reused for non-potable purposes. Non-potable water represents 56.1% of household use. As long as it meets council sanitation requirements, water can also be harvested and used for other purposes.
