SEWAGE PUMP STATION: These are periodically serviced and the contractors regularly see a build-up of fats and grease as well as toilet waste and foul water. With residents being more at home during lockdowns, this build up has increased and consequently put additional strain on the pumps. Cooperation from all residents is vital to keep the pump station in good running order and to keep the maintenance cost down. Many products are marketed as biodegradable and safe to flush down toilets, such as wipes but these often fail to break down and are not recommended to use at properties with pumping stations. Please therefore ensure only natural human waste and biodegradable products i.e. toilet paper are flushed down the toilet.
