Focusing On Your Flushing

a worker providing septic tank inspection

Do you realize how many times you flush a toilet each day? It’s a simple act that most people don’t even think about when they do it. It’s like flipping a light switch or turning a doorknob. We do these things without much intention or thought. However, flushing your toilet should come with a dose of intentionality to ensure your toilet will continue to perform correctly. Your toilet is a major entryway to the plumbing system, which includes your drains, pipes, and septic tank (if your home is equipped with one) so there are items to flush and items not to flush as you consider a more focused daily flush.

Focusing On What Not To Flush

  1. Many items are marketed as being flushable, but they are causing your plumbing pipes to get clogged. Things such as baby wipes and sanitary wipes will wreak havoc on your pipes. These types of wipes do not disintegrate in the same way that toilet paper does, therefore, throw those wipes in your garbage can instead.
  2. Paper towels and tissues are often associated with toilet paper. They’re all white, soft and relatively thin. However, paper towels and tissues are not designed to disintegrate in the same way that toilet paper does. O-tips, cotton pads and menstrual products cannot break down sufficiently either.
  3. Hair and dental floss easily are tossed into the toilet because they’re small and appear harmless. However, these items are tiny but mighty when it comes to their ability to cause a net that traps items in your pipes, catching and holding other debris and ultimately creating a block.

If your toilet is not functioning correctly, it could be due to a blocked pipe or another underlying septic issue. Call Septic Service Pro today, and we will conduct a septic inspection and offer you prompt and affordable repair.

Septic Service Pro


Based on 117 reviews

Jim is a true professional who worked with me over months to identify and correct septic field problems. His positive attitude and helpful discussion in resolving issues is the best I found.


Mike and Shane came out and did an outstanding job on replacing our septic pump. Same day service - and they came out on a Friday evening! Mother's day would not have been very happy if they didn't save the day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!


We had our septic tank pumped and baffle tee replaced. The guys were on time, respectful and quick. They cleaned up very well after the job and even fluffed our pine straw to perfection!! We'd recommend these guys without hesitation.


Michael and Shane did an awesome job. Had to pump the septic,install a new baffle tee and tail out line. Very little yard displaced. Will definitely use Septic Service Pro again. Very pleased.


We live in Dawsonville. The crew that came out was very professional. The company owner explained to me the value and the many details about the septic that I did not know, that is why I chose them in the first place. Excellent service. R.McGary


Jim and his crew installed a new leech field for us quickly and professionally at a very reasonable cost. They handled all of the permitting and inspections and completed the work in a timely manner. Would recommend them to anyone.


Michael and assistant pointed out a leaking toilet that I didn't know I had (saved me $ there!). They also disturbed very little of the yard to get to the tank. Not the super cheapest but no hard upsell when they got here. Very pleased.


The team was efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and FAST to arrive. The bill was extremely reasonable for the work needed to be done. I would HIGHLY recommend Septic Service Pro.


These guys were amazing. Jim and Mike came when they said they would, did the job, explained everything they did. Very courteous,and professional. I am a handicapped person and felt extremely comfortable with them at my home. Thank you!!!!!
