Q. How do I flush my Doggybog?
A. We would recommend using recycled water from a water butt or similar receptacle. The doggybog should not be connected directly to the water mains. We are currently working on an adapter to allow the introduction of water without a hose pipe using just a standard household milk bottle. GREAT for recycling & easy to use.
Q. Can I put my Poop bags down after a walk?
A. You can only put FLUSHABLE poop bags down the Doggybog. These are specifically designed to be flushed down the toilet and completely break down in the sewage system. These are available from our site shop or see our sister site www.flushablepoobags.co.uk
Q. Do I need a professional to fit my Doggybog?
A. Doggybog can be diy fitted in under an hour.
Q. Are we allowed to flush Dog poop into the human sewer system?
A. We have spoken with the legal experts at United Utilities and they have no objections to its use in their domestic sewage disposal system. Other utility companies take a similar view.
The government web site www.direct.gov.uk advises that dog waste should either be buried or flushed.
You should not put it in your green garden waste or rubbish bins. Please follow the link above and scroll down to advice for dog owners
Q. I am considering buying one of your Doggybog’s, but I have a concern, our toilets have an s bent and a layer of water to prevent the smell from returning up the pipe. How does the Doggy Bog prevent smells from leaking out of the lid.
A. The lid of the Doggybog is sealed with a rubber gasket in the very same way a rodding eye is sealed on a standard soil pipe. So when the lid is on nothing leaks.
It is worth remembering though that all soil pipes are vented at the top or in some cases a Durgo valve to allow good water flow and reduce gas build up in the sewage system -no smell is present in our atmosphere.
The layer of water that a 'Normal' toilet has is called a 'water seal' and this is only needed if fitted on the inside of a house. The Doggybog is intended for external use only.
