Things That Can Be Flushed Down Your Toilet

Expert plumbers always advise people not to flush down everything in the toilet. People who still do so have to face clogged toilets. Clogged toilets are required to be fixed by professional plumbers. So if you neglect such things and dump everything into the toilet, then be ready to spend your money and time in fixing a toilet. You can call our services in Ottawa, and we will be there for your assistance. But it would be wiser if you don’t dump anything at all in the toilet. Here are some of the top things that you can flush down your toilet.

1) Waste

The basic use of the toilet is for humans to flush down their waste. But we don’t know where people got the idea of flushing down everything. Flushing down things that are meant to be thrown in dustbin eventually clog the toilet drains. You can keep a dedicated bin in the toilet to throw garbage, and instruct your family members about it. So the toilet should be used only to flush down the human waste, not everything called waste.

2) Toilet Paper

Toilet papers are the second thing that is determined to be flushed down the toilet. But it is still confusing for people who have installed a septic tank. It is assumed that toilet paper can harm the septic tank. And even a big chunk of toilet paper thrown down the toilet drains sometimes lead to clogged toilets. You can flush down a standard toilet paper, but if you are still suspicious about it, then you can use different kinds of toilet paper. Disintegrated toilet papers are made intently to disintegrate the moment they come in contact with the water. Either you can also keep a dedicated trash can and a trash bag in the toilet, and tell everyone in the house to throw the toilet papers in it and not flush them.

3) Mild Toilet Cleaners

Most toilet cleaners contain acids and other chemicals that are quite harmful to the toilet and septic systems when flushed down. So, to be on the safe side, use the mildest toilet cleaner you can find. See that the toilet cleaner you use does not contain acid as they are harmful, and they also have negative environmental impacts. You disinfectant cleaners that contain alkyl ammonium as it is safer to use and kills the germs effectively. If there are any stubborn stains in the toilet, use a powdered cleaner and a scrub pad to clean it. Only use acid-based cleaners as a last resort while cleaning your toilets.

Sometimes even after taking much care of your toilet, you can still face clogged toilets. This is not a good sign, and you would need to call professionals like ours to fix the issue. You can call us and get the services in Ottawa.
