Toilets are designed to handle human waste, which means that they should be safe for flushing. In this case, human waste consists of urine or feces, as well as small amounts of toilet paper. As long as you are not flushing anything else down the toilet, this material will pass through just fine and end up safely in the municipal sewer system or your septic tank.
The toilet is designed to handle small amounts of easily degradable waste. If you try to flush anything else down the toilet, it will likely clog. Long-term mistreatment of your toilets could result in large blockages deep in your sewer line, which could compromise the safety and integrity of your entire system. For this reason, it’s critical that property owners are aware of what should and shouldn’t go inside their toilet bowls. Here are some common things people flush down their toilets that should never be flushed:
If your toilet is clogged, you need to get it fixed as soon as possible. The longer a clog remains in your plumbing, the more likely it will cause damage to your home's pipes. Often, the best way to fix a clog is by using a plunger. However, if you have tried plunging and still cannot unclog your toilet, then it’s best to call a professional plumber. They will have the experience and tools required to remove the clog successfully without damaging your pipes or toilet. If you are experiencing recurring clogs, this could be a sign of an underlying problem with your drain line or sewer line, in which case a camera inspection can pinpoint the cause of your plumbing trouble.
