Your Drain Pipe's Worst Enemy
There are a number of items that get flushed or washed down the drain that simply
do not belong in your sewer pipes. Being informed about what objects and products can
cause damage can help you protect and maintain the lifespan of your sewer system.
Here are some items that do not belong in your pipes:
Cat Litter: While some companies try to advertise litter than can be flushed, the reality
is that these items can cause problems for your pipes.
Feminine Hygiene Products: Because feminine products do not dissolve in water, they are prone to jamming
up pipes. Again, these are sometimes marketed as safe to flush, but experts
generally advise against it.
Certain Food Waste: Soft and small food items are generally okay to wash down through your
garbage disposal. However, there are a few items that frequently cause
clogs. These include: egg shells, coffee grounds, pasta, and rice.
Grease & Fat: Oil and grease have the ability to harden and coat pipes and cause severe
clogging problems over time. A large portion of sewer problems can be
directly attributed to grease.
Paper & Cotton Products: Anything more durable than toilet paper is not advisable to flush down
the drain. This includes paper towels as well as cotton balls.
Baby Wipes: Here is yet another product that is commonly marketed as "flushable".
Plumbers, especially metropolitan sewer workers, know better. If baby
wipes can clog city-sized sewer mains, think what these can do to your
special offers are currently available.
