Prevent blocked drains and protect our water cycle

By LYoung 19 Sep 2019

No-one wants a blockage at their flat. It’s a nuisance for you and can cause damage to our environment. Here are some handy hints to keep everything working as it should.

In the kitchen:

  • Do not pour fat, oil or grease down the plughole
  • Remove leftover bits of food from plates and pots before washing

Your toilet:

  • You can flush toilet paper down the toilet in the UK.
  • Items that should not be flushed include- wipes, sanitary items (tampons, towels etc.), cotton wool, cotton buds, nappies, condoms, bandages or contact lenses.

The shower:

  • Remove hair from the plughole after showering.

If there’s a blockage at your flat please report it as soon as possible so it can be repaired quickly. Remember you can do this online or by emailing or calling the office. Thanks for your help in keeping our water systems running smoothly!
