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


Lake Forest Plumbing experts say, if you’ve ever owned a home, you have probably had the unpleasant encounter of a sewer-line issue.

What caused the situation, tree origin overgrowth, tampons, and a great deal of paper is normally the offender.

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

Tree Root overgrowth

Lake Forest Plumbers say, the wood 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 if an inordinate amount of debris has accumulated.

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

Bathroom Paper

Lake Forest Plumbing experts say all toilet papers are designed to break up into sewage and septic processes.

Plush and ultra sorts of bathroom paper have an inclination to take longer has to disintegrate and often absorb water.

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

Clumps of this toilet paper don’t pass as easily through your home’s plumbing and sit like these as saliva wads on elementary school ceilings.

Feminine Hygiene

Tampons, maybe not the applicators (that many girls are aware are not flushable), however, the cotton/rayon tampon itself, is perhaps never to be flushed.

Yes, even though they are small enough to make it all the way through the waste traces, however, they don’t dissolve or breakdown like paper products.

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

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

The Other Products

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

They are made out of paper, so can dissolve, but they don’t dissolve as fast.

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

This contains stuff including dental floss, cotton balls/swabs, and similar products.
