What causes sewer flooding?

Sewer flooding can be caused by a number of factors, including pipe blockages and heavy rainfall.

A common cause - both on the public sewers and on customers' own drainage pipes - is flushing the wrong things down the loo. Items such as cotton wool, baby wipes and cotton buds can clump together, causing blockages, sewer flooding and major expense.
