Keep strainers on drains to prevent hair, soap and debris from clogging the drain lines
Avoid flushing facial tissue, sanitary products, diapers or baby wipes down the toilet as they do not dissolve and can clog the lines. These can also cause your septic tank to fill faster.
Avoid storing items above lavatories that could inadvertently fall in creating a blockage.
Do not dispose of hard-to-grind, stringy or fibrous waste (poultry skins, carrots, celery or banana peels) into the garbage disposer.
Run cold water down the drain for 15 seconds before and after using the garbage disposer to flush waste through the line.
Don't pour liquid grease down the drain. Wipe congealed grease from pots and pans with a paper towel and dispose of in the trash.
Keep outdoor drains free from debris.
