Here we bring you a collection of classic plumbing fails from around the world…
The dangers of flood water should not be underestimated.
It’s powerful and just 6 inches of fast flowing flood water can knock you off your feet.
But it’s not just its power that can be hazardous but also the pollutants it contains.
Each year in the UK we produce around 75,000 tonnes of human feces and 6 billion gallons of urine, with these figures rapidly increasing year after year.
Waste water from our toilets along with rain water mix together in sewage pipes underground, which lead on to wastewater treatment plants for processing.
Extreme rainfall can flood these pipes forcing dirty water back up spilling raw untreated sewage into our homes, straight out into our streets or into our rivers.
If your property is flooded you can’t just wait for it to dry out then move back in.
Any wood in the house, all furnishings and even plaster board on the wall will soak up the water, containing bacteria, so ultimately it all has to be removed and refitted.
