21 Things To Keep Out Of Your Drains!!
Is there anything more annoying than clogged drains? We don’t think so either. Here at Tualatin Valley Plumbing, our team is in the business of keeping your property running as smoothly as possible. In our years of service, we have encountered countless plumbing issues—such as clogged drains, overflowing toilets, burst water lines, and more—all of which could have been avoided.
That’s right, many plumbing problems can be prevented just by being careful about what you put down your drains. Drains and sewer lines are really only designed to transfer wastewater and toilet paper. Most other items cannot be broken down easily in water, which means they can get caught inside of pipes, resulting in severe clogs.
Below are the 21 things that should NEVER go down your drains:
Feminine hygiene products
What Can Be Placed In My Drains?
After this, you’re probably wondering what you can put down your drains. As far as your toilet goes, you should follow the “three P rule”: Only flush pee, poop, and (toilet) paper. Only soaps and liquids (and liquid soaps!) should go down your sink drains. And, finally, you should always limit the items you place in your garbage disposal. Soft foods, liquids, and non-fibrous veggies are all ok to put down your garbage disposal. Any items that should be kept out of your drains can be tossed into your trashcan instead. Following these rules can save you a ton of time, money, and energy down the line.
