The Unflushables

As a drainage company, we see lots of things that people flush away that should never be flushed down the toilet, but disposed of properly.

Toilet unflushables we see on a regular basis

  • Baby wipes
  • Make-up removal wipes
  • Sanitary wear
  • Ear buds
  • Incontinence pads
  • Toilet fresheners

All of these items can potentially cause blockages to your drainage system. This, in turn, will need clearing and comes with a cost.

Don’t flush it, bin it!

“Don’t flush it, bin it” is what we suggest to customers after we have visited and unblocked their drains.

Kitchen sink sins we see on a regular basis

Drain blockages also happen when people wash things down the kitchen sink. We regularly unblock kitchen sinks and drains blocked from:

  • Fat washed off baking trays and saucepans
  • Coffee grounds
  • Scraps washed from plates
  • Leftover sauces from the Sunday roast

Don’t rinse it, bin it!

If you need to use a fork to push it down the plug hole, it is meant for the bin.

Are your drains blocked? If you notice a nasty smell, your sink is overflowing or your toilet not flushing, contact us to unblock it for you.
