13 Things Not To Throw Down Your Toilet

Residential sewage pipes are usually 3-4 inches in diameter, therefore, When you use your toilet like a trash can, blockages will occur.

Remember Toilets are really designed to handle human waste and toilet tissue so, when you flush down items that are either not biodegradable or do not break down easily, you will end up with a clog or a total sewage back-up, which can also come up through your tub/shower and bathroom sink.  Not a pretty sight to see or smell.

To prevent this problem from happening to you, here is a list of 13 things not to throw down your toilet.
