Drainage & Sewerage

Combined ShapeCreated with Sketch.

Our drainage and sewerage service – known as Poo Taxi – provides a commercial vacuum cleaning of septic tanks and grease traps. Our practical and responsive service runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to ensure any odours, blocked or overflowing drains, slow draining toilets or other related issues can be tackled as soon as they arise.


To ensure you have no nasty surprises we perform regular maintenance checks, cleaning septic tanks every three years as per standard guidelines and commercial grease traps every three months to the Council’s requirements. We look to find long-term solutions for all of your sewerage and drainage needs.


After having run the NPDC Oakura Sewerage Project from 2009 to 2010, our team has plenty of knowledge and experience. During this time Plumbtech converted residential dwellings with septic tank systems to Council sewer mains. The Plumbtech drainage and sewerage service was fundamental to the process of decommissioning old septic tanks. From here we have continued to grow our service throughout the wider Taranaki community. This includes upgrading to a new 6000 litre vacuum truck for the option of heavy product disposal.
