All those garden parties add up

Glasgow is still in Level 3 restrictions compared to the rest of Scotland which is in Level 2.

What does this have to do with drain blockages?  Well, after months of lockdown restrictions, those lucky enough to have a garden space have, understandably, been using it for social interactions.  Now that the weather in Glasgow is getting better (supposedly), these garden interactions will only increase and that can create problems.

You would be amazed at how many blocked drains are caused by cigarette butts that have been dropped down the garden drain grate.  While nothing should ever be put down a drain apart from water and waste (so no wet wipes, pads, cotton buds etc), many people simply don’t think about it and drop a cigarette butt down the drain grate when they have finished their cigarette.

But over time, and with more social interaction, the amount of cigarette butts that get put down the drain increases and it really only takes one or two to cause a blocked drain.

Think about it.  If there are (based on current lockdown restrictions) six people allowed from up to three households and they all smoked.  That is six smokers.  If each smokes three cigarettes in an hour of socialising, that is just shy of a full 20 pack of cigarettes.  That is a lot of used cigarette butts.  While it would be madness for them all (especially the home owner) to put their used cigarette butts down the drain, stranger things have happened and all it then takes is a day or constant rain (when does that ever happen in Glasgow?) and the drain blocks and overflows.

And who do you call when your drain blocks?  Why JSL Drainage of course.  Your local drainage company who will get the job done.
