Many people use the toilet for flushing things that should be disposed of elsewhere. Improper flushing of solid objects in the toilet causes clogging. There are cases that cell phones, children’s toys, paper, and other objects are being flushed in toilets. It is a bad idea to get rid of the solid items by simply dumping the item to the toilet, flush and it is gone.
Every object you improperly flush in the toilet means expensive cost because once your wastewater facility is clogged you need an emergency service to resolve the issue.
These are some of the items you daily use and must not be flushed in the toilet:
Feminine Hygiene Items
Feminine items should not be flushed in your toilet because it may block the passage of water and waste going to the tank or mainline.
Food grease is in liquid form and you can easily dump. Once the collected grease cools and solidifies, it may cause your pipes to clog.
Baby Wipes and Tissue
Baby wipes and tissues are the most flushable object because it is increasingly being used by women. Using tissues and baby wipes is fine, but you must throw it in the trash can. The establishment and homes should provide a trash can beside the toilet.
Never flush your baby’s diaper because it expands in water. As a result, it blocks the pipes which stop the wastewater passage going into the main pipeline or tank.
