What You Can and Can’t Flush Down Your Drains
Not everything can be flushed down the drain. If you’re unsure whether or not to throw something in the sink, don't do it. A good rule of thumb is to throw it in the trash.
For example, face pads and ear swabs should be thrown in the garbage rather than flushed down the toilet. You should also avoid putting the following products down your drains:
- Kitty litter
- Fats, oils, & grease
- Feminine hygiene products
- Coffee grounds
- Paper towels
- Fruit pits
- Produce stickers
- Household cleaning products

How Do You Remove Buildup from Drain Pipes?
Most drains get clogged with a combination of soap, fats, and hair. Luckily, soap and fats melt quickly, meaning they can be flushed down the drain with boiling water. Hot water is usually the first-step solution, however. If you notice your drains are slowing down, now would be a good time to try the hot water solution.
Otherwise, your best bet is to try a clothes hanger or drain snake to clear the problem. Either of these tools can be lowered into your drain to break up the clog.
If a drain snake doesn’t work, give our plumbers in Manchester a call. Our team has the training needed to clean your plumbing system efficiently. We utilize state-of-the-art HydroScrub® Jetting technology to clear clogs. This high-pressure water tool breaks up stubborn clogs without damaging your plumbing.
How Much Does It Cost to Clear a Drain?
Clearing a drain will cost you anywhere from $85 to $800. The price variance depends on the location and the severity of the clog. The more complicated the cleaning will be, the longer it will take, and the more expensive it is to clear.
For example, removing a clog in a sink is much simpler than clearing a clog in a toilet or clearing the main sewer line. The main sewer line clogs tend to be the most expensive. They might involve digging up your yard if tree roots are clogging your sewer line.
