Where does Sewage end up

Foul water of which comes from your toilet and grey water which comes from your sinks, baths and showers. Both will end up in a public sewer at some point. The sewers will lead to a Sewage treatment plant. The treatment plant will remove the solids through different stages, firstly the inlet screening, this is where solids normally bigger than 6mm are removed by way of an inlet screen, wet wipes,sanitary items and stones are removed. The next stage will be the Primary Settlement process. This is where the solids are settled out and removed, the settled solids are known as sludge. The settled sewage will then move on to the biological treatment, this is where the micro organisms are removed. Next is the final treatment where more fine solids are removed. The remaining now clean effluents are returned to a water course ready to be used again at some point.

How Do Drains Get Blocked?
Numerous different objects can cause a blocked drain. With regards to a kitchen sink, grease and fat are very common causes of a block. If you need to dispose of grease or fat from instruments used in cooking, you must use a container and dispose of it through an appropriate manner. (for more information regarding ways to dispose of grease and fat, please contact your local council)
With regards to toilet drains, it is very important that you never flush anything other than thin toilet paper. This includes wet wipes, food, dental floss, chewing gum, and feminine hygiene products. Items such as these may seem insignificant at first, however with products such as dental floss, it’s important to note that it doesn’t biodegrade, so it lingers and can tangle with other inappropriate items that are flushed such as feminine hygiene products, which are designed to be highly absorbent, making them unsafe to pass through pipes.
The Importance Of Unblocking A Drain Quickly In Oxford – Do You Have A Smelly Oxford Drain?
If a drain is blocked and it starts to smell, it is very important that you get it seen to by a professional as soon as possible. The “smelly” gas leaking out of blocked drainage pipes sometimes referred to as sewer gas is hydrogen sulphide. This gas is highly toxic and highly flammable. It can cause nausea, headaches, tremors, convulsions, unconsciousness, and death.
This gas is very pungent in small amounts; however it can quickly deaden an individual’s sense of smell, making it a very dangerous gas. As such, if you suspect any issues with your drainage, contact a skilled professional as soon as possible.

What Are The Risks Of Unblocking A Drain Yourself?
After learning of the dangers of a blocked drain, you might be tempted to unblock it yourself, however we highly suggest that you seek the assistance of a professional. Whilst there are numerous products available on the market and the high street for unblocking drains at home, it’s important that a drain is unblocked correctly. By the time you notice an issue with your drain, either due to liquid taking a long time to drain, a full blockage, or a strong smell; it is likely that there are numerous issues with your drainage, not a single issue.
So whilst a product might be great at helping to combat a specific problem, without the relevant experience and expertise, you will be unable to diagnose the several issues currently afflicting your property’s drainage, as such in a few days, weeks, or even months later; the issues could return, potentially worse than before.
