Don't Flush That!

It's important to be mindful of what you flush down the toilet to avoid clogs, backups, and other plumbing issues. Here are some things you should never flush down the toilet:

  1. DO NOT FLUSH Wipes: Even if they are labeled as "flushable," wipes can still cause clogs.

  2. DO NOT FLUSH Feminine hygiene products: Tampons, pads, and other feminine hygiene products should never be flushed down the toilet.

  3. DO NOT FLUSH Dental floss: Dental floss is not biodegradable and can get tangled in your pipes, causing clogs.

  4. DO NOT FLUSH Cotton balls and swabs: These items do not break down easily and can cause blockages.

  5. DO NOT FLUSH Medications: Flushing medications down the toilet can harm the environment and contaminate the water supply.

  6. DO NOT FLUSH Paper towels and tissues: While toilet paper is designed to break down easily in water, paper towels and tissues are not and can cause clogs.

  7. DO NOT FLUSH Grease and oils: Like with drains, cooking oils, fats, and grease should never be poured down the toilet as they can solidify and cause clogs in your pipes.
