What items do you typically flush down the toilet in a year?
- disposable/flushable wipes
- feminine hygiene products
- cigarette butts
- unused medicine
All of these products are not flushable and can cause severe damage to your home’s plumbing system. Products that contain cotton-like materials can snag and catch in the residential and commercial plumbing of Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Boerne and Surrounding Areas. If these items clog your pipes and build up pressure, you could have flooding or a burst pipe –both are not cheap to repair. Even if the materials pass through your home, they could cause serious damage to your local waste water treatment facility.
As the materials collect from residential and commercial facilities, the materials can combine to create ropes and plugs in the pipes. Depending on the size of the problem, cities and towns could have high cost repairs to make. Unfortunately, many of these products are marketed as flushable or disposable when you should only dispose of them in the garbage or appropriate receptacle (like unused medications). In order to prevent plumbing damage to your home, the Plumbers at Holloway Plumbing advise you not to flush these items down the toilet. If you are ever unsure, just stick to the rule that only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed down the toilet. Anything else doesn’t belong there.
