Beware what you put down the drain-it could end up costly!
What do you put down your drain?
If you answered water then 10 out of 10.
But did you know some people put all sorts of items down the drain and then wonder why blockages occur, not to mention the environmental consequences.
Items like small toys, nails and paint brushes have all been found to have caused blocked drains so as you can see, problems can be easily avoided by adhering to common sense and remembering what drains are for how easily they can become clogged.
It’s also easy not to think about what we flush down the toilet so it’s a timely reminder to put tampons, pads and the like in a bin and not into the toilet bowl to be flushed away, only to become an obstruction that you’ll need to call a professional sort out.
Have a bin beside your toilet and a note to remind family members and visitors how to dispose of these items properly and why.
It’s also a good idea to have sieves on drains throughout your property to catch unwanted items from being flushed away.
It really is simple to avoid blocked drains just by being aware and taking preventative action.
