Top 20 things you should never go down a drain

Just in case you weren’t aware, there are some things that simply should never go down a drain pipe. Putting the wrong things down a drain can cause major havoc not just to your own plumbing system with damaged or clogged pipes but may also impact your neighbour’s property and ultimately the waste water treatment plant where all drains lead to.

We’ve listed below the Top 20 no no’s:

  • Oil, fat or butter
  • Vegetable peels
  • Meat solids
  • Paper
  • Paper towels
  • Plastic wrappers
  • Baby wipes
  • Nappies
  • Cotton balls
  • Cotton buds
  • Feminine products
  • Condoms
  • Medicines
  • Chemicals
  • Paints or thinners
  • Nail polish
  • Pesticides
  • Oils from cars
  • Corrosive liquids
  • Flammable liquids

If you never pour or place any of the above down your drain you should never experience the inconvenience or expense of a severely blocked drain. If you are however experiencing a blockage in your plumbing, MJ Walker Plumbing are only a phone call away.
