Don’t flush that!

We have all seen the advertisements bragging about how products are flushable. The truth is most of these products can and will plug up a sewer system. Wet wipes cause a lot of problems because they do not break down rapidly and they “ hang up” on any parts of a sewer system that are not perfect. Wet wipes also clog septic systems, private sewer pumps & municipality pump systems.

At Sullivan Plumbing we have also seen the following products cause sewer blockages: Q-tips, feminine hygiene products, toilet bowl sanitizing pads…unfortunately most of these product manufacturers label their product as “flushable”. I bet none of these companies are willing to pay a drain cleaning bill.

Just a quick reminder to run lots of water when using your garbage disposal to flush that food debris completely thru your waste system. A general rule of thumb is to run water for 30 seconds after you turn off disposal unit.

No plumbing emergency is too difficult for Sullivan Plumbing.
