There are many things that cause clogged drains; from tree roots to sewer line breaks. But here are some common things that should absolutely not be flushed down the drain that can cause major plumbing issues and damage to your plumbing system. Many cat owners don’t know the repercussions for flushing cat litter down the toilet. This is absolutely one of the worst things you can put down your toilet. Flushing cat litter will not only clog your drain, it will make cleaning the drain much harder for your Orlando plumber. When cat litter is flushed, it will clump up in the drain and dissolve. Then it will harden leaving a hard build-up, like concrete. This is very difficult to clean and can usually only be completely removed by hydro-jetting, which can be very expensive. If you have a cat do not flush cat litter down the drain, it is also not a good idea to put litter boxes in the shower or bath tub. If the litter gets kicked out of the box it will work its way into the tub drain and cause problems. Another common issue, especially in older homes, is using powdered laundry soap. The powder also causes a hard build-up in the laundry drain, causing difficult clogs. These are common things that we see, but most customers don’t know that they cause drain issues!
