If you're wondering what you should and shouldn't flush, here’s a good rule of thumb: Only flush pee, poo and toilet paper!When you use the toilet to dispose of things that should go in the trash, you risk clogging your home’s sewer pipes and our sewer lines in the street.
The two biggest causes of sewer clogs are “flushable” wipes and fats, oil and grease (FOG).
Unlike toilet paper, which breaks down quickly in water, wet wipes remain intact and tangle into massive clogs that jam pumps and block pipes. Even those labeled "flushable" should not be flushed.
Grease cools as it travels through pipes. Over time, the accumulation of grease can block pipes, and other fatty substances contribute to clogs, so dispose of all fats, oils, and grease in the trash, not down the drain.
