We regularly consult with industry specialists, to harness our collective experience, so we can address water conservation and make green technologies the norm.

At UPP, we believe that the future of water is through saving it as much as we can.


Our residential plumbing services include – but are not limited to – leak detection and repair; water line repair and replacement; the unclogging of toilets, drains and sewer lines; the repair of existing bathrooms, kitchen piping and fixtures; kitchen and bathroom installations, as well as geyser repairs, replacement and smart metering. We also offer after-hours emergency services to all our clients.

Commercial plumbing requires an understanding of plumbing solutions on a large scale, as office buildings and complexes usually have multiple floors, each one requiring bathrooms, canteen and/or kitchen areas, geysers, other plumbing points and utility solutions.

Our commercial services include – but are not limited to – restrooms, kitchens and tea/coffee stations; drainage, sewerage, pressure and piping solutions, as well as water-saving measures.

Industrial plumbing is both complex and specialised, with the range of plumbing services required highly dependent on the type of sector or industry involved – from mining and chemical to automotive, agriculture and manufacturing etc.

Plumbing fixtures, filtration systems, water pressure considerations, piping installations, drainage and waste management solutions, all need to be durable, safe and compliant to ensure maximum output and productivity, while also taking into consideration the wellbeing of employees and the environment.

Nika PretoriusBack-up Water

I would like to thank you for the service and job well done at our property. Thank you to JoJo tanks as we had received your details as authorised installers of their products and services in installing Septic tanks. The office staff at UPP are extremely kind, friendly and willing to assist with any questions I had at the start of this process. With no experience or knowledge of what this can entail they gave me good advice and the service was quick with no delay. The job at the site was done close to its due date, even with allot of unforeseen complications the end result is something to be very proud of!! Thank you Shaun for the daily updates, photos and videos that was send, to give us, as the clients peace of mind during the entire process.

Who we are

The UPP Group was founded in 2001 by Duncan Keil, a master plumber with more than 35 years’ experience and a great passion for the plumbing industry, youth empowerment and community development.

The business was developed with the intent of growing the plumbing industry through empowerment, skills development, collaboration with seasoned water technology experts, as well as forming partnerships with key industry, compliance and technology leaders, to help create a professional standard in South Africa.

In 2018, we changed the name of the business to UPP Group (Pty) Ltd as a result of our expansion and renewed focus on becoming Water Solution Specialists. What started as mainly residential and construction-related work had evolved to the point where we were able to offer our clients so much more than traditional plumbing-related services.

UPP Group (Pty) Ltd is a proudly 100% women-owned, BBBEE Level 2 business. We use only SABS-compliant products and are registered with the PIRB (Plumbing Industry Registration Board) and IOPSA (Institute of Plumbing South Africa).
