Can you pour soup into the toilet: the answer is categorical

Soup has no place in sewage pipes

Sometimes it happens that food prepared in advance spoils and has to be thrown away. Perhaps the most common way to dispose of such leftovers is to flush them down the toilet. However, plumbing experts say that this is a gross mistake.

The habit of pouring soups down the toilet is often explained by the fact that it is a liquid dish, and the sewage system is designed specifically for liquid waste. However, as OBOZREVATEL has found out, the situation is somewhat more complicated.

Solid particles of food - pieces of vegetables, meat, etc. - in wastewater, cause rotting. This process can negatively affect the operation of the sewer system. Large pieces can lead to mechanical clogging of pipes.

Therefore, experts advise dividing spoiled soups into two parts - liquid and solid. The liquid can indeed be poured down the toilet, and there will be no harm in doing so. But all solid pieces should be disposed of with organic waste in a bin for this type of waste.
