Happy New Year Plumbing Tips
1. Use stainless steel strainers in your sinks and shower plug holes
Our fatberg blog post talks about how your plumbing can become blocked. Stainless steel strainers prevent food scraps from clogging your kitchen sink while also preventing hair, hygiene products and wipes from accidentally causing blockages in your shower.
Not only do food scraps, hair, hygiene products and wipes block up your house plumbing, they can also clog the sewer. Please do the right thing!
2. Dispose of fat, grease and cooking oil in the bin
Sure, detergent does a great job of breaking fat, grease and oil up, but it can later solidify in your plumbing, or worse still, the sewer.
We highly recommend that you dispose of all fat, grease and cooking oil by throwing it in the bin. The last thing you need is a blockage that a simple plunger cannot fix.
A small strip of baking paper can help you easily transfer roasting oils from an oven tray to your bin. Or furthermore, you could even use the juices for a gravy!
3. Ditch soap for body wash instead
If you haven’t already, make the switch from bars of soap to body wash. Soap scum coats the walls of plumbing pipes, and like cooking oil, can solidify and cause serious blockages. Body wash doesn’t solidify and passes through your plumbing, into the sewer. Make the switch today!
4. Use the PPP principle
As per our fatberg blog post, the only tings you should ever flush down the toilet are pee, poo and paper. Having said that, only toilet paper should be flushed as it is designed to degrade without causing blockages in your plumbing or the sewer. Compared this to paper towels and facial tissues which do not degrade properly and cause blockages.
Furthermore, using your toilet as a bin is not recommended. If you use wipes in the toilet, make sure these are put in a disposable bag and put in the bin.
