Limit What You Put Down the Drain

The most effective way to avoid clogs is to not put anything down the drain that will clog it. Sounds logical, right — but what all can and can’t go down the drain?

  • No food
  • No coffee grounds
  • No grease
  • No hair

Using a drain catch can help in particular with hair and other small particles that could build up in your drain. Another tip is to brush your hair before you take a shower or bath, as this reduces the amount of hair that will be shed while in there.

Never Flush Paper Products Down The Toilet

The only type of paper product that should be going down your toilet is toilet paper. Everything else will typically not break down or not break down fast enough for your system. Excess paper can clog the toilet and even the whole sewer system.

Routine Septic Tank Maintenance

If you have a septic tank, getting it inspected and cleaned/drained every few years is essential. If you let it go too long, you could have a clog throughout your home, with the septic tank being so full that gray water is being pushed back into your pipes and home! Hire Dash Drains for septic tank cleaning services when it’s time for a routine check-up or in an emergency!
