Unfortunately, this can lead to extensive, costly damage such as serious clogs, leaks, burst pipes, and more. In order to protect your plumbing system and avoid frustrating repairs, you need to know what cannot be flushed down the toilet.
Objects that should not be flushed include:
Wipes that are marketed as “flushable”
