It is meant only for toilet bowls, keep it closed and out of reach of children.

3. ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SAFE FOR SEPTIC TANKS?

Most of our products are safe for septic tanks. To be sure, read the packaging information or check the instructions on pack to determine if the product is suitable for your septic tank.

If you have a modern bio-septic tank, it is always best to check with the manufacturer what products are safe to use with your system.

4. WHERE CAN I BUY HARPIC PRODUCTS? SOMETIMES I CAN’T FIND MY OLD FAVOURITES IN SOME STORES.

Harpic products can be found at major retailers, as well as your local independent stores. Not all products are stocked at every store, so it’s best to try a few of your local stores if you can’t find something.

5. HOW DO I USE FLUSHMATIC? DO I TAKE THE WRAPPER OFF?

No, you do not need to take the wrapper off the Harpic Flushmatic. Simply remove the backing card of the packaging, & drop a block into your toilet’s cistern as per the instructions on pack. The wrapper will dissolve in the water after a few flushes. A convenient & clean way to begin releasing the active ingredients!

6. I BOUGHT A HARPIC TOILET HYGIENIC & IT DOESN’T SEEM TO FIT MY TOILET. AM I USING IT CORRECTLY?

Toilets come in all shapes & sizes, so it can seem more difficult to fit toilet products in some toilets. A toilet block should sit over the rim of your toilet & be quite stable. When the toilet is flushed, water should run over the toilet block to distribute the cleaning & freshening agent across the toilet bowl.

If you feel your toilet block isn’t sitting correctly, firstly try positioning the toilet block in a different spot on the rim. It may fit better on the rim towards the back of the toilet, or towards the front. If it is still not quite right, try gently stretching the plastic hook a little so that it better fits the shape of the rim of your toilet. Be careful not to apply too much pressure or you may break the hook.
