Blockages will prevent waste and other matters from leaving your property and can cause severe issues and flooding.
You may have a blockage if:
- The toilet will not flush correctly

When waste cannot be drained correctly, it can cause flooding around the home. Always be sure to flush away faecal matters and toilet paper, but don’t flush:
- Fat, oil or food
- Wet wipes, cotton buds and sanitary items
