his causes that sewage cannot flow causing water back up. Additional items that contribute to this problem are sanitary items and wet wipes. Every year thousands of homes and gardens get flooded with sewage as a result of clogged drains. The solution? Dispose food waste and rubbish in the bin. Toilet tissue, water and human waste are the only things that can be taken away by sewers. Everything else: paper, plastic waste, nappies, sanitary products, wet wipes need to go to the rubbish bin. You might think that dental floss and cotton buds could go down the toilet, but these small items can collect and damage filters at sewage treatment points. All wet wipes used while toilet training your kids or to remove make-up should go to the bin. Wet wipes do not break down as toilet paper does, and mixed down the drain with fat, they clog the drains. Products labelled as “flushable” or “biodegradable” can also contribute to clogging drains. These products go away when you flush the toilet but they do not break down in the sewer and the time to disintegrate can be years… The diameter of your home pipes is usually around 10 cm and they can become clogged if unsuitable items are washed or flushed down them. Oil, paints, chemicals, medicines, tablets, syringes, needles and solvents should not go down your drains. Ask you council where and how to dispose them.
