Our company was established in 2000 as J&T Plumbing by James and Tania Vinson. Our mission is to be the number one plumbing services provider in the Bay of Plenty.

We have always had a vision to establish a business that is transparent in its culture, inspired by friendliness, trustworthiness and reliability. Providing environmentally safe and sound solutions in plumbing, drainage, solar and gas to people in Tauranga, Papamoa, Mt Maunganui and throughout the Bay of Plenty.


We consciously work to minimise our impact on the environment, preserving it for future generations. You might have seen our mascot JT the blue duck on our website or our vans. To us, he’s more than a cute rubber duck. He’s inspired by our native blue duck, the Whio. The Whio is endangered, with less than 3000 across the country and we care about conserving this national treasure for future generations.


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. Between us all, the years of plumbing experience adds up to a phenomenal amount that equals an unprecedented quality experience for you.

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.


“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.”


So, that leaves me, the J in JT Plumbing and Drainage. If you can’t find me in the office, I will either be out on the job connecting in with our team, making sure they are doing an amazing job, or I will be driving around in my 1968 Mustang, or I could always be away hunting.”

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