TOILET PAPER? OR TROUBLE?
THIS SEWER MAN THINKS TROUBLE
What one should look for in a toilet paper, at least from your sewer’s point, is that when wet it breaks down. The way one tests this, take a big handfull, put it in the toilet, a bucket or a big bowl of water. Then stir very rapidly. Good paper should break up into small little pieces. If it does not, get rid of it! The sewerman’s choice isssssssss Soft & Gentle! But no matter what your choice, you should test it every six months.
GARBAGE DISPOSAL OR GARBAGE CAN
What is a garbage disposal for? Besides keeping me employed, not a whole lot. If you feel you must have one, then you should be sure to do the following tips:
Remember, water is your garbage disposal’s best friend! You should let your water run, on the average about 10 seconds even after you turn the disposal off. Also, only fill your disposal about 1/4 of the way full at a time.
There are things you should avoid putting in your garbage disposal. POTATO PEELINGS, also peeling of any kind. They stick to your hands as well as your pipes. PASTA & RICE. It swells in water & becomes sticky. It will allow the water to flow through, but not any food. Eventually not even water can get through. Stay away from anything leafy or stringy.
Remember drains are meant for water. Anything else is a clog in the making. I don’t even have a garbage disposal.
DRAIN SURGEON PROCEDURE
