All Clear Septic and Wastewater Services provide advice to their customers to ensure that they use their septic systems correctly and are therefore less likely to have septic system problems. Very importantly to take good care of your septic system you should know which items should never be flushed down the drain or toilet. This is because these things can overtax or destroy the biological digestion taking place within the system or clog pumps and pipes.
Take care not to flush the following:
- hair combings, coffee grounds, dental floss, disposable diapers, or kitty litter
- sanitary napkins, tampons, cigarette butts, or condoms
- gauze bandages, fat, grease, or oil, paper towels
- chemicals that could contaminate surface and groundwater, such as paints, varnishes, thinners, waste oils, photographic solutions, or pesticides
