Drains, Sump & Cesspit Cleaning

The clearing and cleaning of drains, sumps and cesspits requires specialised knowledge and equipment. Civic boasts an array of technically, advanced, self-contained vacuum loading equipment for the efficient and safe removal of dusts, solids and liquids from confined spaces and pits. 

We currently perform scheduled drain, sump and cesspit clearing for local councils in New Zealand. On an ad-hoc basis we also perform hydro-excavation services. Many of our operators have more than 20 years of experience in these services.


We have the capability to perform a variety of services including:

•  Drain, sump & cesspit clearing
•  Drain unblocking & cleaning
•  Hydro-excavation
•  Liquid & solid waste removal

All mobile vacuum-loading units are equipped with emergency spill kits and our operators have undertaken extensive in-house training on procedures, checks and managing our environmental responsibility.
