Family owned and operated

Ecoworld was established in 1993 by Fred & Ruby Walker.  Back then, bio-remediation or microbe technology (natural micro-organisms/bacteria) to treat organic waste was in its infancy in New Zealand. Now, Fred & Ruby's son Ron, and his wife Kathy own the business, after taking over the reigns in 2018. Fred & Ruby still work within the business, offering their vast expertise on a daily basis.  In fact, with over 27 years of history in the water treatment industry, the Ecoworld team has a wealth of knowledge and experience in water purification, revitalisation, treatment methods and systems.

We are a leading supplier of rural water filtration systems, specialising in the removal of iron and manganese, but also treat other issues affecting commercial and industrial businesses. Our own ‘iRon-Filtration by design’ water filter systems can be found throughout the Waikato, Bay of Plenty and surrounding North Island areas. Our iRon™ systems have been installed on dairy farms, lifestyle blocks, holiday homes, commercial, domestic dwellings, and industries including a winery on Waiheke Island, a brewery in the Waikato, and the Dairy NZ research farms, chicken farms, goat farms, vehicle wash companies and so on.  Do you require a solution to fix your current water source’s quality?


In terms of treatment of water after its use, we are proud to be leaders in the Grease Interceptor industry.  Appointed by Dux Industries as New Zealand’s sole service provider for the Dux Actamatic® Grease Converter and the Dux Endura Grease Converter, we are also approved and certified service providers for the Thermaco Big Dipper Grease Removal System, and MacTrap Grease Converters and Removal Systems.  Actually, our Service Technicians know pretty much all there is to know about all types and brands of grease interceptor. 

We are proud to be a leading provider of a range of bio-remediation retail products, such as Septi-Cure™, to treat septic tanks, effluent ponds and municipal infrastructure. You can purchase these from us directly, or from outlets such as Farmlands, Farm Source and Profarm.
