Avoiding Blockages

Follow these guidelines to help keep your drains flowing freely.

Our tips for avoiding blockages

  • Keep grids and gullies clear of debris and flush with water to check flow
  • Follow product guidelines for the disposal of sanitary products
  • Avoid flushing disposable wipes
  • Wipe fat and grease off cooking utensils and dispose of with household waste
  • Follow product guidelines on correct amounts of washing powder
  • Periodically check drain access points to ensure they are flowing freely and that no roots are visible
  • Ensure all gullies have grids or drain covers to prevent children's/pet's toys and other items causing blockages

We can provide a maintenance programme if required.We would also recommend that you keep a close eye on any drain covers on your drive. If any damage is visible, it is possible that the cover may not continue to support your vehicle.
