How Can I Avoid Clogs?
Many foreign items often find their way into toilets and are flushed. However, toilets are not intended to be used as garbage disposals. Items that should never be flushed include paper towels, facial tissues, food, wipes, hair, diapers, grease, and coffee grounds. Grease, in particular, causes buildup inside the pipes, while hair does not dissolve and can attract other debris within the pipes.
You should also be more mindful of the amount of toilet paper that gets flushed. Newer, softer toilet paper is more likely to cause clogs than those that are labeled septic-safe.
Thorough, periodic cleaning of your toilet bowl will prolong the life of your unit, reduce problems, and promote a more sanitary environment.
