Read Why Olson Superior Plumbing is Orange County’s #1 Plumber 


Lake Forest Plumbing pros say, if you’ve actually owned a home, you have likely had the unpleasant experience of a sewer line issues.

Often, but not always, the sewage technician will allow you to know what caused the situation, tree root overgrowth, tampons, and a great deal of paper is normally the culprit.

You have to understand that just because something says it really is flushable, it won’t mean it is wise to finish so.

Tree Root over Growth – Lake Forest Plumbers

Lake Forest Plumbers say, the timber in your yard, or even your neighbor’s yard, can mature into the porous material of someone’s sewer-line, especially at sewer-line joints.

Of course, water won’t be able to flow via formerly an inordinate amount of debris has accumulated.

This is the reason what you flush matters — anything that doesn’t quickly and easily break up runs the risk of being grabbed and stored on.

Toilet Paper

Lake Forest Plumbing pros say, all toilet papers are designed to break up into sewer and septic processes.

Plush and ultra sorts of bathroom paper have a tendency to take longer hours to disintegrate and often absorb water.

Turning them into globs of paper before they struck the town sewer main.

Clumps of this toilet paper don’t pass as easily throughout your home’s plumbing and sit your line such as spit wads on elementary college ceilings.

Add sewer roots into the combination and also you can see the wrong bathroom paper can be a issue.

Feminine Hygiene

Tampons, maybe not the applicators (that most girls know are not flushable), however, the cotton/rayon tampon itself, is not to be flushed.

Yes, they are small enough to make it during the waste traces but don’t to dissolve or breakdown like paper products.

Instead, wrap them in toilet paper like you also do feminine pads and dispose of them at the trash.

Again, if follicles are in the line, they may grab the tampons and cause a clog.

Without roots, tampons can sit the line, catch other debris, and avert water from passing.

The Other Products

Other things that say they are flushable, but really can cause issues on your sewer comprise wipes and paper towels.

They are made out of paper, so will dissolve, nevertheless, they do not do it fast.

Instead, they are far more cloth such as creating large clogs.

Overall, if it can go in the trash, rather than down the drain, it really is much far better to throw it away.

This contains stuff like dental floss, cotton balls/swabs, and similar goods.
