Putting the wrong things down your sinks and drains can block and erode your pipes. This can cause sewage overflows in your home. Overflows are extremely damaging to your property and very expensive for you to repair.
It also impacts our sewerage network. It causes blockages and overflows at our sewage treatment plants, which we have to clear and dispose of. This dramatically reduces the efficiency and increases the cost of the sewage treatment process.
Bin it. Don't block it.
Keep a kitchen caddy next to your sink
for food scraps and coffee grounds
Stop fatty build ups in your pipes by
putting excess cooking oil in the bin
Strain your drain
Sink strainers are a great way
to keep the plumber away
