dishwashers are as big a contributor to fatbergs as anything else.Millions of greasy plates dishes and even pans are popped in and all the fat is wabhed into the system.A well known product makes a fortune telling you how to clean your filthy dishwasher.does everyone think it stops there.

i think it would be a good idea if the water companies got together to publish a Nationally Distributed Comic like the Beano.They could build on the Idea of Aquaman and Walter and Wally or meanies called Blocker ,Squidgy,or some such name. Each region could have a Hero or Villain  or both. With Expert Cartoonists and continuing Story lines,it would go a BOMB.

15% Of blockages are caused by Fat,Oil or grease being washed down plugholes and through Dishwashers.                                                                  30% Qf blockages are caused by wipes and other Sanitary products[items] being flushed down the toilet.                                                                                     Stopping these two activities alone would prevent almost half the blockages occurring,showing the huge amount of public awakening needed to...
