Keep wipes out of the pipes!

There’s a big problem lurking in our sewers, and we need your help!

Please let your family and friends know to never flush ANY wet wipes down the toilet, but instead dispose of them in the rubbish.

Like water utilities around the world, we are having an increasing issue with wet wipes in our wastewater system. London, New York and all Australian water utilities are facing the same problem.

Flushed wet wipes can block pipes, which can lead to sewage overflows into homes or creeks. It's likely they can block your sewer pipes leading to a costly plumbing bill. You can avoid this all.

If you have been unfortunate enough to have a plumbing blockage at your home due to wipes, please register to get involved and let us know!

    Global water utilities

    Water utilities from around the world have joined together to provide an industry position on non-flushable and 'flushable' labelled products.

    Water utilities from Australia, United States, UK, New Zealand and across Europe agree that only the three Ps (Pee, Poo and toilet Paper) should be flushed and are calling for other products labelled 'flushable' to be labelled 'Do Not Flush' until there is a standard agreed by the water and wastewater industry.

    Consumer advocacy group Choice has awarded a leading wet wipes manufacturer with a Gold Shonky at this year's annual Shonky Awards.

    Choice tested the company's advertising claims that their wet wipes break down like toilet paper and found that the 'flushable' wet wipes hold together for 21 hours, whereas toilet paper dissolves in minutes.
