What Not To Flush 2018
Did you know that flushing the wrong things down your toilet or pouring them down your drain can be extremely costly and cause damage to your home, neighborhood and city? Keep reading to find out how…

Every time you use your toilet, shower, washing machine, garbage disposal or dishwasher, wastewater leaves your home through pipes that connect to the Columbus Water Works’ sewer system. When the wrong items are flushed or poured down your drain, it can cause sewer backup in your home, sewer releases into the environment and damage the sewer system. This would have a major impact on many and cost us all a great deal of money to repair the damage.

So, what can you do to help prevent this from happening? You can be mindful of what you flush down your toilet, pour down your drain and take responsibility with us to protect our sewer system. Below is a list of products that should not be flushed (nor poured), because they do not dissolve in your drains and clog pipes and pumps.
