4 Things You Should Never Flush into Your Septic System

If your home is not on a sewer system, you probably have a septic tank underneath your back yard. You may need occasional septic tank cleaning and septic pumping in Ferndale WA to keep everything running smoothly. However, if you want to avoid needless septic tank repair bills, here are some things you should never flush down the toilet or into your home’s drain system.

  1. Wipes : Wet wipes are not just for babies. Many adults use them too. They are very handy and convenient, but you should place them in a trash container instead of flushing them down the toilet. Yet, you can find wipe products made for flushing.
  2. Feminine Hygiene Products : Flushing absorbent pads is not a good idea. They are not designed to break down in your septic system.
  3. Floss : Dental floss can wrap around things in the drain and cause serious clogs.
