Do you have water that keeps filling up in your sink and taking forever to drain? Are you taking a shower in standing water that is up to your ankles? These draining issues may not seem like a big issue at first, but it slowly gets worse and worse. If you keep ignoring it, it can become a much bigger and serious problem.
If you have a single drain that is draining slowly, it is more than likely a partial clog in that particular drain.

Toilets – Toilets as well as sewer and septic systems are designed to handle only certain things: water, toilet paper, and human waste.

Items such as Feminine hygiene products, wet wipes, and cigarette butts do not dissolve and cannot be processed by the sewer system. They should never be flushed down the toilet.
