This is what your plumbing and air conditioning in Mira Mesa, CA says: It seems harmless enough, a few stray hairs there, some vegetable skins there. Its hard to imagine things so small could create such big drain problems. But really, no matter their size, certain things will eventually add up, lierally one on top of the other, and pretty soon you have a clogged drain. Some things that a normal San Diego or Temecula or Murrieta dweller may not even think twice about putting down the drain, could aslo harm the environment. Economy Plumbing and HVAC reminds you…
All of that water filled with leftover spagetti sauce, dead plants, sewage, and other nasty things goes down the pipes beneath your house. It then trails the many, many pipes throughout your area, in this case Vista, Escondido, Oceanside, Temecula, Murrieta, San Diego, and makes its way to huge bodies of water. The water is then treated to get all the foul smells, and flavors out and is made to become the tap water in your kitchen sink or go back to the oceans, lakes, and rivers, from where it originated.
But even the plumbing and air conditioning in Mira Mesa, CA from Economy Plumbing cant remove everything from the water, and neither can these water treatment plants. Here are some pollutants that should never go down your drain!
Oils and Grease: This includes cooking oils, animal fat, used motor oil, and even oil-based cosmetics. These types of liquid have a way of plugging things up, since they congeal as they cool in the water. Not only could this disrupt the household pipes, it could block sewer lines and spill sewage into surrounding bodies of water.
Hazardous Waste: Leftover paint, gasoline, antifreeze, cleansers, pesticides, and other chemical-heavy liquids should never go down the drain. Instead, throw them in the trash.
Prescription Drugs: Expired or unused medication, prescribed or over-the-counter, should be taken to a pharmacy.
Garbage-Only Items: Things that should always go in the trash include dental floss, cigarette butts, tampons/sanitary pads, condoms, hair (human or pet), cotton balls, makeup, diapers, and food. Even with a garbage disposal, some food items are guaranteed to eventually clog the drain or break your disposal! Veggie and friut skins, egg shells, and cooked rice are some of them.
