Think Water Whakatane has been installing and servicing milking machines, pumps, filtration, irrigation, and water treatment systems in the Whakatane, Te Puke, Galatea, and Wairoa areas for more than 26 years.

Owners Steve and Llaurellee Darrah and their team of technicians are dedicated to providing professional water systems advice, services, and solutions.

The business began as WJ Dippie Milking Machines more than 26 years ago and was rebranded as Bay Milking Equipment Ltd in 1995. In 2011 it moved to Whakatane and added BME Pools & Spas to their list of services. In October 2016 Steve and Llaurellee purchased the business and have experienced successful growth since.

With a history in farming, Steve, Llaurellee and their son have plenty of experience with farm systems & equipment, irrigation, and pumps. Our technicians are trained and qualified to service, repair, and install dairy equipment and effluent systems for all applications.

The Think Water Whakatane showroom is located at 7 Gateway West, Whakatane and stocks everything related to water management including pumps, irrigation systems, parts and accessories, filtration systems and filters, hose, fittings, valves and pipes. Qualified sales and service staff can assist you with rainwater harvesting and stock watering systems.

Our Pool Valet Service is available to assist you with maintaining your pool or spa and we stock a range of pool and spa chemicals, cleaners, pumps, filters, and accessories. Why not book a valet service for your pool or spa this summer and spend more time in it than cleaning it.
