Biohazard A lot of these items won't crumble... Toilet paper

Toilet overflows are common, but a clogged toilet can be problematic. Only two things should be flushed down the toilet and they are human waste & toilet paper. There are several items that are not safe for flushing. 

Try not to flush these items:

  • Paper Towels
  • Hair
  • Plastic
  • Small Toys
  • Diapers
  • Feminine Products 
  • Prescription Medication
  • Cotton Swabs
  • Dental Floss
  • Sanitary wipes
  • Oil & Grease
  • Cigarette Butts
  • Cat Litter
  • Band Aides

Many of these items can expand in water and they are not designed to break down like toilet paper. They eventually gather together or wrap around other objects in the pipe line, causing major issues, while grease & oil cause clogs by solidifying once cooled.  

If you find yourself overwhelmed with a clogged toilet, contact a local plumber, then call 860-826-5169. We'll help clean up the contaminated water and whatever comes with it.
