Our Team


At JT Plumbing and Drainage we believe a champion team always beats a team of champions. In saying that, our team not only works enthusiastically together, but are each highly capable plumbers and drainlayers in their own right.

Our highly experienced Tauranga team has encountered most plumbing, drainage and solar situations before. Whether you are building a new home or have a simple situation such as blocked drains or a leaky tap to more complex tasks, our team is focused on doing it right the first time and ensuring satisfaction and happiness for our customers in Tauranga, Mt Maunganui and Papamoa.

11_LOWRES“Hi, I’m the T in JT Plumbing and Drainage. I love people and nothing makes me more excited than meeting new people and learning about them, this comes from having a background in Nursing and Complimentary Health Care.

When James and I met over 20 years ago in Africa, who knew we would be spearheading a company focusing on being the best in the bay. Family is important to us and we have 2 kids, we enjoy supporting and encouraging them both in all their sports and other endeavours.” – Tania

Tania and I are both focused on moving into the future, continuing to be supported by our amazing team of people.” – James


waving2Every Duck Counts

Just like water, New Zealand’s iconic blue duck is precious. You may have noticed us on the $10 note – but did you know we are an endangered species? As a blue rubber duck, I also support the plight of my rare feathered blue duck friends across New Zealand.
