The Blocked Drain Culprits For Families
When it comes to your toilet there are only three things that should be flushed – a ‘number one’, a ‘number two’ and toilet paper. Everything else has the potential to clog your pipes. This is especially true for sanitary products, baby wipes, facial wipes and ‘flushable’ wipes.
Although ‘flushable wipes’ advertise that they disintegrate, the truth is that they do not disintegrate as fast as ordinary toilet paper and often results in clogged sewer pipes or a clogged toilet.
Having children ourselves, we understand that children love to flush the toilet and be independent on the toilet. We have even caught our 2 year old trying to clean up her ‘mess’ and flush baby wipes down the toilet. While the independence is great and something us parents all strive for especially in the toilet department – it is vital that we also explain to our children what can and can’t go into the toilet.
By simply placing all sanitary products, baby and facial wipes in the bin you can help prevent having to call us out due to a blocked drain. If you do have a blocked drain caused by sanitary products, baby or facial wipes, don’t panic we can certainly fix it for you.
