The Argus: Plug for Southern Water sewermen’s festive song Plug for Southern Water sewermen’s festive song

Water company staff have struck a few bum notes in a seasonal song to warn residents not to block up their drain this Christmas time.

The catchy Jingle Smells song has been recorded by Southern Water to spread the message of keeping drains clear this festive period.

The hilarious tune had already attracted more than 1,000 hits in its first three days online.

The song warns that pouring cooking oils down sinks and flushing wet wipes down toilets can cause blockages, leading to flooding of homes and streets.

In the last six months there have been more than 3,000 blockages in Southern Water’s region, including more than 100 in Brighton and Hove.

Last year, the Worthing-based company’s singing sewermen clocked up almost 3,000 views from around the world.

This year they hope to top that figure by drafting in a keyboard player and some serious vocal talent from around the company.

The spare time singers hope their efforts will encourage people to think twice about what they pour or flush away.
