The experts at RD Plumbing Solutions have encountered and successfully tackled every possible Adelaide plumbing problem under the sun. The most common plumbing emergency calls we get are usually for clogged pipes or blocked drains caused by flushing things that do not belong in the toilet. Many people think it’s okay to flush anything that will fit down the toilet and be out of sight out of mind. However, that is not the case as many plumbing issues arise because of wrong things being flushed down the toilet. When homeowners get careless about the garbage they dispose of in their toilets, it seriously obstructs the plumbing system. In severe cases and with years of neglect, you may end up with a completely clogged toilet, stubbornly blocked drains, pipe leaks, sewage backup, burst pipes, and more which can only be repaired by a professional blocked drain plumber.
To avoid a plumbing catastrophe and save yourself the hassle of dealing with a blocked toilet, follow our list of common items that you should never flush down the toilet – under any circumstances. You may be surprised about some of them! We are hoping that this blog will help educate our customers on how to avoid serious plumbing problems.
Plug Your Toilet From:
Toilets are designed to flush human waste and toilet paper. Anything else belongs in the trash can or rubbish bin.

- Food scraps
- Feminine hygiene products
- Cat litter
