Scientists are busy in the Arctic drilling 3 km deep into the ice cap to determine if signs of ancient life in the north can be verified. While being interviewed, they state that the general air temperature increase is causing the ice cap to shrink year-on-year and that we in the UK can expect that our weather will become wetter and stormier than we are accustomed to. Wetter and stormier – that means more flooding. Householders and business owner should therefore seek to protect themselves from future flood damage by flood-proofing their homes. To this end, Toilet Stoppers are a must and should be kept on hand at the ready for rapid installation whenever flood conditions are threatened.
