The Hydra Plumbing Story

Hydra Plumbing values artisan craftsmanship on a global scale, and we are proud to have our hand-made products installed in over 25 countries worldwide.

We believe we make the best showers possible, and celebrate the unique differences of working in copper and brass. From a modern chrome-plated finish to an antiqued copper that ages with time and blends with your environment, we have crafted our range to offer beautiful plumbing options to suit every home.

Built from the ground up following the devastating earthquakes that rocked Christchurch, New Zealand, Michael Brown and his family have built a truly worldwide business from the rubble.

Our Family Team:

Michael Brown
Our artisan and maker – if you have a concept or an idea, he can make it.

Nathan Brown
Our marketing guru, getting our products out to the world.

Phyllis Brown
Our financial chief, keeping us in motion and inspiring the team.

Part of our focus following the Christchurch earthquakes has been supporting local business in our area, working with other artisans to create amazing products. 

Our extended team:

Michael Daly
Our metal spinner, who crafts our shower roses from simple copper disks.

Sharon Ford
Our local potter, who hand-crafts the ceramic inserts for our tapware.

The team at Custom Tooling, who help us with the more involved engineering problems.
