Don’t Be A Toilet Blocker!
It’s never a good idea to flush or pour waste down toilets, sinks and drains which should go in the bin.
You can easily cause a blockage.
Sometimes we don’t think about what we’re doing, but blockages are inconvenient and expensive to clear. Only 3 things should be flushed down a toilet – number ones, number twos and toilet paper. Don’t Be A Blocker!
Managing Condensation & Mould
Setting storage heaters
Our aim is:
Storage heaters use electricity overnight and store heat in a set of clay or ceramic bricks to release the following day. The benefit is they use electricity at night when it’s cheaper and give out heat the next day. Watch our video to see how to set storage heaters correctly.
