Know what should go down the drain that is sewer safe!
Know the three P's of What2Flush
The toilet is only meant to flush the three P's-pee, poop and (toilet) paper. Human waste and toilet paper should be the only thing going down the toilet. Unfortunately, over the years, people have turned the toilet into a trash can. From medications and sanitary products to deceased pet fish and cigarette butts, if it fits, people flush it.
(c) 2013 Orange County Sanitation District

Flushing these types of items down the toilet causes home pipes to clog, wastes water (up to 5 gallons of water every time you flush) and most importantly can have a huge impact on our sewers and not to mention our waterways.

Below is a list of items that people commonly flush that should not be going down the toilet. Sanitary Products, Paper Towels, Diapers, Baby Wipes and Facial Tissues-are made of materials that don't break down and can cause all pipes to clog. The trash is the place for these items.
Go to the What2Flush website for more information on what shouldn't go down your drain.
