Love is in the air and we’re here to remind you to take some time to show your drains and pipes some love this Valentines Day! We know that you are all romantics at heart and will be spending the day doing nice things for the people you love, but we want to remind you not to neglect your drains or put too much pressure on them.



How best to care for your drains:

  • If you are making a meal for your loved one, remember not to pour any fat down the sink.
  • If you are in an area suffering from a cold snap, bundle your pipes up warmly so they don’t feel the chill.
  • Give your gutter some loving by clearing them of leaves, moss, twigs and other detritus.
  • Don’t give your drain pipes an acid bath as harsh chemicals can corrode the pipework.
  • Only flush the 3 Ps (pee, poo, toilet paper) to keep your toilet drains happy.
  • Check your sink P-Trap is not blocked and is holding a water level to prevent bad smells
