How do I know if my home is connected properly?

You may not know that the dirty water from your washing machine, dishwasher, sink and even toilet could be going straight into nearby streams and rivers. By fixing the problem you will protect your environment, prevent health risks, reduce flooding and avoid penalty charges.

The  ConnectRight campaign is a partnership between environmental regulators, water companies, authorities and other professional and interested organisations, working to reduce water pollution from drains and sewers. Follow the steps on their website to make sure your home plumbing is connected right and learn what to do if you find a problem.
