Please only flush pee, poo and toilet paper down the loo. As millions of people suffer the misery of blocked drains every year - a result of unsuitable products being flushed down the loo or washed down the drain.
Myth- buster:Wet wipes do not break down as quickly as toilet paper, they lurk in the pipes and merge with fats to create a huge rock hard fatberg. A wipe also contains plastic and other man made materials which persist in the environment. Even if wipes say 'flushable' they should not be flushed down the toilet bin it instead.
Never pour oil and fat down the sink. When it cools it sets hard clogging your pipes, the majority of blockages are caused by cooking fat and oil, which congeal in the sewers, forming a thick layer around the pipe.
Myth-buster: Running the hot tap and pouring washing up liquid down the sink wont prevent fats or oils from blocking your pipes. Each year approximately 1000 homes and 5000 gardens flood with sewage as a result of blockages in the sewers.
Help us to fight the fatberg by putting these things in the BIN:
FAT AND OIL
PLASTERS & BAMDAGES
OH AND TOYS.
