When it comes to your plumbing and toilet maintenance, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

The very best thing you can do for your home's plumbing is also the easiest - maintain it. Toilets are often the most used fixture in a home but with proper use and regular maintenance, your toilet can last a long time. 

A great deal of blockages are caused by people flushing inappropriate things down the toilet. As the home owner, it is ultimately your responsibility for clearing blockages caused by misuse, so it's important to know what can and can't be disposed of down the toilet. 

What not to flush down your toilet:

  • Nappies
  • Cotton wool/buds
  • Paper towels 
  • Baby or make up wipes - even if it says it's flushable 
  • Sanitary products
  • Dental floss
  • Contact lenses 
  • Oil, solvent or flammable liquids 

It's important to understand that we cannot accept responsibility for sorting out problems due to misuse. If a basin or bath is slow to drain, please ensure you try a sink un-blocker before reporting a drainage problem. 

If you use a bleach block that affixes to the rim of the toilet bowl, please ensure that it is secure and cannot fall into the toilet trap (U-bend) as it may be difficult to retrieve. 

Check that a cistern type bleach block does not foul the operation of the filling and flushing mechanisms of your toilet. These types of toilet blocks may be corrosive. We will not be responsible for repairing any damage caused to the toilet fitting, fixtures or floor coverings as a result of using these products.
