How well do you know your drains?
It is very easy to make things disappear down the drain, but have you ever thought about where it all ends up? There is a common misconception that everything you pour or flush away at home ends up in a sewage treatment plant, but that isn’t quite how it works. If your plumbing at home is incorrect, dirty water could be draining straight into your local river or beach. As the property owner you are responsible for fixing any faulty drainage connections, even if these were in place prior to you owning the property.
If you do not fix your faulty drains, you’re directly affecting your local environment and could face a fine of up to...£50,000
Please see the leaflets on our Documents page for more information.
