To help you with the maintenance of your drains, please find below a helpful guide to keeping drains flowing freely:

  • Do not pour fat, oil or anything greasy down your kitchen sink – this will help avoid fat encrustation which decreases the carrying capacity of the pipes
  • Avoid an overuse of washing powder in your washing machine as this may result in blocked drains
  • Do not flush any improper objects down the toilets which may cause internal blockages – e.g. toilet fresheners, toys etc. and try to keep these items away from the toilet to prevent them accidentally being knocked in
  • Lift drain covers regularly to check that the drains are flowing freely
  • Remove all build up of hair that may get caught in plugholes
  • Regularly clean toilets, baths and sinks with disinfectant
  • Do not flush sanitary ware or nappies down the toilet as these may cause drains to become blocked
  • Ensure that all guttering and drain grates are free from leaves and garden waste
