Many of us take our toilets for granted. Day to day, we simply flush and forget. That’s understandable – who really wants to think about what happens after we flush?
Here at Unitywater, we think about it all the time!
Your toilet is part of a very important network, the sewerage system, which is a series of pipes and pumps sending the sewage that you flush or wash down the drain to our treatment plants.
We’re working hard every day to protect our way of life, our health and our environment. But we need your help too.
To prevent expensive plumbing repairs, download our list of what not to put down your loo!
Cotton buds, tampons and pads are
a major cause of toilet blockages
Only pee, poo and toilet paper
should be flushed down your loo
Always put them in the bin
(even if it says they’re flushable)
Don't confuse your toilet for a rubbish bin. All of the items above should be placed in the bin, not the sewerage system.
