There are three things — and three things only — that should be flushed down the toilet.
No. 1 (pee), No. 2 (poop) and toilet paper.
No. Nothing else, even if the packaging says that it’s flushable. Just don’t do it.
Other items do not break down in water like toilet paper and can cause a blockage in your pipes.
Do not flush:
Oils and grease
BandAids and other bandages
Also, don’t flush prescription pills. Drugs may destroy bacteria and contaminate groundwater.
If you flushed something you weren’t supposed to flush and are having issues with your plumbing, contact Sam Pollard & Son at 252-752-3661.
