Toilets are NOT Trash Cans!

Although we flush human waste down the toilet, it does not mean sewers are waste disposal units.

Sewers are not designed to cope with modern disposable products, and as a result these items can cause blockages. The drains connecting your home to the main sewer are only big enough to carry water, toilet paper, and human waste. They are often no wider than four inches. Around 75 percent of blockages involve disposable items. Avoid sewer line blockages which can be a drain on your finances due to expensive plumbing repairs.
