Just because it goes down, doesn't mean it won't cause problems later. Many products marked as disposable and/or flushable don't dissolve, and some are even a danger to the environment. We all need to take responsibility for what we flush or pour down our drains by becoming educated and thinking twice before we dispose of anything into our water systems.
The Rest of the Story
Here's a fast and dirty run-down of what-not-to-flush. Ready? Bandages, cat litter, chemicals, cigarettes, cleaners, coffee grounds, condoms, cooking fats, cotton balls, dental floss, diapers, dirt, ear swabs, egg shells, facial tissue, fertilizer, glue, goldfish (!), grease, hairballs (eww), herbicides, hygiene products, lint, medicines, oil (You still with us?), paint, paper towels, pesticides, pet waste, pills, pins, plastic bags, nursing pads, razors, rubber gloves, scrub pads, spoiled food, toys, twist ties, vitamins, wipes, and wrappers.
Despite responsible flushing habits, clogs still happen. If one comes your way, contact Plumbing Solutions of Idaho today!
