How to Be Eco-Friendly with Your Home Sewage and Drainage Systems
Being environmentally conscious is a very important thing for many people, as it should be! Taking care of our environment is one of our top priorities at Reliable Drain, so we wanted to take the time to share how you can be more eco-friendly at home.
Watch What You Put Down Your Drains
The most impactful thing you can do to help the environment, when it comes to your home drainage system, is to watch what you are putting down your drains! Most people don’t really realize that when you flush something down the toilet or pour it down the drain that it has to go somewhere. Debris, pills, chemicals, sewage, paper, baby wipes; all of these things can really impact the environment and should not be flushed.
The waste treatment plants are designed to treat the water that comes from your drains, but when you flush things like pills or pour Draino down your drain, those chemicals are harder to filter out from the water.
Likewise, flushing paper towels and most baby wipes are not going to break down like septic-safe toilet paper does. So, eventually, those things will just end up in a landfill.
Not only is flushing these types of products bad for the environment, but it is also bad for your plumbing too. Baby wipes, feminine products, paper towels, and things like that can clog your pipes, creating an expensive and total avoidable repair!
