Tips to Prevent Toilet Clogs
We've all been there - it always happens at the most inconvenient times....when you are hosting the in-laws for the first big holiday dinner, or a hot date after a spicy dinner. Follow these simple tips to avoid reaching for the plunger.
The DO NOT FLUSH List
- Feminine Products
- Moist Wipes
- Anything That Isn't Toilet Paper!
A clogged toilet isn't always immediately obvious. Watch out for slow or weak flushes - this is a sign that there may be a clog forming. Plunge the toilet as soon as slow or weak flushes occur to help prevent major clogging.
- Large amounts of toilet paper
- Very thick toilet paper - switch to a thinner option to prevent ongoing issues
Don't forget to
- Flush after each use!
