Toilet and drain clogging are of the most common issues faced by people all around the world. Most of the time a toilet or septic tank gets clogged because of our own mistakes. It is important to know what things you can pass through your drains or toilets because it will not only help you extend the life of your septic system, and you will be able to live more peacefully. For example, one of the most common and specific reasons for the clogging of septic tank systems is the drain in the kitchen. Here is where the meat fats, lard, cooking oil, suet, grease, leftovers, baking goods, sauces and some dairy products enter the septic system. When cooled, these materials solidify and cause major problems in pipelines and build-up in the septic tanks, decreasing the capacity of the system. The only thing that you can send down your drain is toilet paper, because it will not clog it and will wash through easily with the flowing water.
No Non-Organic or Toxic items!
The things you should never put into the system are food, cigarette buds, fats, oils, grease from cars or lawnmowers, coffee grinds, egg shells, product stickers, chunks of garbage, feminine hygiene products, paper towels, flushable cat litter, rags, condoms, motor oil, transmission fluids, anti-freeze or other toxic elements, thinners, dyes, turpentine, polish remover, flammable or explosive substances, corrosive substances that are either acidic or caustic. All these things are very high-risk materials, which will clog the drain and the overall system, becoming a serious problem if not treated or properly managed.
