Pouring soup into the toilet can cause significant problems

Sometimes, the toilet is used as one of the ways to dispose of waste in the home, especially when it comes to organics. However, plumbers warn that this is not the proper way to use the device, as it can clog the sewage system and damage the pipe system throughout the entire house.

OBOZREVATEL has outlined what should never be thrown down the toilet. The damage that can occur in this case can cost you a significant amount of money.

Soups. Only the liquid part of the dish (broth or broth) can be disposed of in the toilet, all solid particles should be sent to the trash.

Coffee grounds. Due to its abrasiveness, this waste can accelerate the wear of pipes. This is especially true for pipes made of cast iron.

Butter and oil. Any fat hardens under the influence of cold water. If it is poured down the drain, it will begin to settle on the pipe walls and accelerate clogging. It is not easy to clean the fatty deposits.

Chemical solvents. Aggressive substances can damage the enamel of the toilet bowl and spoil the pipes. Especially when it comes to plastic types.

Boiling water. Due to the temperature difference between the cold bowl and the hot water, the toilet enamel can crack. This can completely ruin the sanitary device and you will have to change it.

Toilet paper. Even though manufacturers are now trying to make toilet paper semi-soluble and suitable for disposal in the toilet, not all varieties are capable of this. The worst of this can be seen in the sewer systems of old houses.
