Don’t Flush These 4 Things Down Your Toilet

There are many things that can go wrong with your Winter Springs plumbing that is out of your control but there is a big thing you can do to not cause needless plumbing repairs to your home which is saving a ton of money. When a customer calls about their clogged drains we ask them a few questions about what they flush down the toilet and almost everyone will say they don’t flush certain items down the drain and 90% of the time we pull these items out of the drain line. So here are some items not to flush down your toilet:

  1. Baby wipes or flushable wipes are your Winter Springs plumbers best friend because they cause a lot of plumbing backups and keep plumbers busy. The reason why you should not flush these items is because they do not break down like toilet paper and catch on the rough spots in the pipe and then build up until your line is clogged.
  2. Feminine products is another item not to flush down toilet because these are the same as mentioned above.
  3. Cat litter is no good to flush because the clay in the litter can cause havoc on your plumbing.
  4. And last but not least, coffee grounds which is something you never should flush down toilet as well.

If you don’t flush these items down your toilet, you can save big time on the cost of drain cleaning. Use common sense and only flush toilet paper and human waste down the toilet and you will save big time. If you need a plumber for drain cleaning give us a call at 407-490-1230.
