Dont Flush

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 to the environment and damage our water 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 such an ordeal from happening? You can be mindful of what you flush down your toilet, pour down your drain and take responsibility with us for the protection of 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.

  • Paper Towels/Rags Diapers

  • Disinfecting Wipes/Baby

  • Wipes Disposable Wipes/Products

  • Cat Liter

  • Food Products

  • Mop Refills

  • Dental Floss

Lastly, remember the 3 P’s, which are the only things you should flush down your toilet. They are:

  • Pee

  • Poo

  • Paper (Toilet)
