Did you know that what you put into the Municipal sewer system and your own septic greatly affects its ability to do its job?
As a general rule, do not dispose of anything in the system that can just as easily be put in the trash. The only things that should be flushed are wastewater and toilet tissue.
Flushing other items can overtax and destroy the biological digestion taking place within the system and cost you money in the long run. It creates major issues with costs and manpower, and greatly increases the potential failure of pumping stations and clogged pumps.
Remember to think before you flush!
