Minimise the impact of COVID-19 on drainage networks
With so many people now working from home due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, and with many of us experiencing difficulty in finding flushable toilet products – the drainage network is bound to suffer.
As specialists in drainage issues and blockages, we work with many local authorities who are concerned about how the network is going to cope with the issues that COVID-19 brings with it.
To do our part in reducing the impact on our drainage system, we have rounded up the best steps everyone can take to keep the systems flowing how they should be.
How to minimise drainage issues
Issues within the drainage network can vary in severity, with some having simple fixes available and minimal downtime. However, if a drainage network hasn’t been properly maintained, there may be several different problems within one area.
Our top tips to keep drainage issues at bay are:
- Have maintenance carried out regularly
If you are responsible for the drainage network, we recommend having regular maintenance carried out on the network. Having a drain specialist inspect the network and look for any potential problems can result in these being fixed before creating a larger, more severe, issue.
- Publish advice on what should be put into the network
As many people are now working from home, or are at home for longer periods, reminding those within the local area of what shouldn’t be flushed down the toilet is a great place to start. Particularly as we did experience shortages of toilet paper, people should be made aware of what can cause blockages in the system, such as kitchen towel and wipes.
- Use an experienced drainage company
Should an issue occur, be sure to work with an experienced and knowledgeable drainage company. Failing to do so could result in ongoing problems, overspending on money and time wasted. Look into a company’s background, experience and qualifications before commissioning them for a drainage project.
