Things you should avoid flushing down your toilet

Are you a person who finds it convenient to flush almost anything down to the toilet? Well, think again because you can get serious plumbing problems with this practice. To avoid the risk of more plumbing issues, get these items away from the toilet.

 

Flushable Wipes

Believe it or not but even the so-called flushable wipes such as baby wipe are not for the toilet. A huge amount of money is spent just on filtering these out of the city’s plumbing system.  

 

Paper Towels 

Paper towels should be disposed in a wastepaper basket instead of being flush on the toilet. These are very thick and big to be flushed down the toilet.

 

Prophylactics

This item can cause serious toilet clogs, not to mention the embarrassment you can get when they back up into the bowl.

 

Kitty Litter 

Kitty litter when moistened clump up in the plumbing pipes and makes a clog, so don’t think to flush it down the toilet.

 

Cigarette Butts

First of all, chemicals are present in cigarette butts, and flushing them might contaminate the water supply. Moreover, they don’t decompose as many people think.

 

Dental Floss

You might say, this is just a thin little string and there’s nothing to worry about. But take note – dental floss isn’t biodegradable and when they bunch up, they can create a clog.

 

Medication

Toilet is not a place to dispose your medicines. When you flush pills down the toilet, even your pets might have a dose of it. If you want the water supply clean for everyone, avoid flushing any kinds of medicines down your toilet.

 

Cotton Balls and Swabs

Don’t underestimate these small things because they can bind together inside the pipes over time and cause undesirable clogs.

 

Feminine Hygiene Products

Flushing these items, because it’s being said on the product’s boxes, is not advisable. The best way is to have a trashcan for each bathroom. You might not be using these items but your guests might.

 

Diapers

Diapers should be disposed because they stink but never in your toilet. In fact, your toilet can’t just take this stuff.

 

Keep your toilet always in good condition or when clog already happened, call any plumbing services in Sydney right away or contact us at info@youplumbing.com.au

Saving Money with You Plumbing

Some of us would rather fix our own plumbing and other things that go wrong in our homes. Like the light bulbs, the fans, and everything else that could go wrong. For some it’s plainly possessiveness or because of their tight budget. Yes, there are some issues that we homeowners can fix on their own, but there will still be a great risk that those problems cannot be fixed instead they will just grow worse.

Here are some issues that you will not be able to fix all by yourself and so you will need a plumber, a professional one, to do the job for you.

  • Toilets– We often encounter toilets that won’t flush, so the first thing we do is to use a plunger. However, when the plunger does not help, then you will have to call a plumber because that might be a blockage in your drainage system. And it will be obvious that you won’t be able to do that alone or all by yourself unless you were trained and equipped with the right tools for the job. Otherwise, do not take the risk because you might just make matters worse.
  • Taps– Never ignore a leaking Taps. This will waste precious water and add up your water consumption which will then add on to your bill. This will add up to your expenses. Call You Plumbing for these types of problems.
  • Saving Money with You PlumbingDrains– Pouring Liquid Plumber down the drain is not enough of a solution for blocked drains. This will only be temporary and you can expect your drain to get blocked every now and then and you, having to buy more and more liquid drain cleaner just to solve the problem. This again, adds up to your expenses. Call us for an effective solution.

It’s easier for you to be able to move around the house without any problem if you would only trust your professional plumbers. It will be more budget friendly and you won’t have to think about the maintenance especially when you let You Plumbing install and fix your plumbing system because we offer the best warranties with their services. Not to mention, we are also very efficient when it comes to working.
