About Us

We are a small family company based on Waiheke Island. Being in such a fabulous location allows us to work on a variety of projects as well as the usual everyday plumbing and gasfitting work.

Heading the team is Lance Crosland, who is originally from Wellington where he did his apprenticeship and set up his own business in 1998. After having two young children, a lifestyle choice was made to relocate to Waiheke Island in 2001. The business was recently restructured and re-branded into Tui Plumbing & Gas.

Lance has over 30 years experience in the industry and also believes in being involved in the community. He is both a Trust Member and Skipper of Waiheke Coastguard. He not only rescues boaties but can also be seen at many local community events and fundraisers along with the other Waiheke Coastguard volunteers.

Director, Certifying Plumber & Gasfitter


Lance Crosland of Tui Pluming & Gas Limited was the contracted plumber and gas fitter when we built our house and winery in Church Bay, Waiheke. The build involved both residential and commercial aspects and required someone who had the experience and knowledge to accomplish a reasonably complex configuration. I cannot praise Lance’s dedication and expertise highly enough during the construction and fit-out, plus his attention to detail at all times. He was consistently very pleasant to deal with and maintained an excellent composure even when under pressure and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to undertake all your plumbing and gas fitting needs. I would also like to add that in our experience of building on the Island, we have had much better servicing and follow up post build from all the Island based contractors than those not domiciled on Waiheke and would only use Waiheke based contractors if we were to build again.

We have worked with Lance Crosland from Tui Plumbing and Gas for nearly 15 years.  Lance has always responded quickly to our needs ranging from solving simple and complex plumbing and gas problems to the design and installation of custom systems (e.g. water treatment).  Lance is a reliable, honest, and customer focused service provider who charges fairly and guarantees his work.  He is a very important part of our extended team and we value our long-term relationship with him and his business.”

Tui did some work for me a few weeks back repairing a fire place on one of our holiday accommodations. We had guests checking into it that day and I was concerned it was going to get dirty as many trades people I have dealt with over the years have adopted a care less attitude. I turned to find Ethan with his boots off, the job done and the area spotless. I was very impressed also with the attention to detail on his repair. To top it off Ethan had great manners and was very personable. Thanks Tui Plumbing & Gas. A job well done!
