4 Ways To Prevent Toilet Backups
Is the toilet in your Pembroke Pines, Florida home something that you take for granted? It may be until you’re stuck with regular clogs that need your attention. That’s when you start thinking about all of the ways you could have been nicer to your toilet and prevent this tragedy from happening.
To avoid toilet backups you should implement the following in your household:
- Know What Not To Flush
Most of us know this but sometimes people need reminding: don’t flush anything other than toilet paper or human waste down the toilet! Items such as sanitary napkins, tampons, diapers, and baby wipes go in the trash can, not the commode.
- Toilet Care and Maintenance
Not all toilets are created equal, some may be more sensitive than others to certain cleaning chemicals. Do your research and read your labels carefully.
- Use Proper Toilet Paper
Before filling your cabinets full of that extra-thick and fluffy toilet paper that you love so much, consider how your toilet and septic system feel about it. You should also think about how much of that toilet paper you’re flushing. Your septic system already has enough to break down without adding in truck loads of indestructible toilet paper.
- Septic Tank Maintenance
Sometimes you’ve done all you can to avoid a toilet backup and you’re still having problems. This could mean that it’s time to get your septic tank pumped. The professional technicians of Eco Pump Services would love to come out to your house and drain your tank for you.
