Be careful you are not flushing items that could cause your house to flood with sewage.
Whether you are on public sewer or have a private septic tank, it's very important that you limit the items you flush down your toilets or dump down your drains aside from toilet paper.

With that being said, if you experience a blockage, stoppage, or overflow from your sewer or septic tank system, stop using the water immediately! Even running the dishwasher or washing a load of clothes could cause the system to fail so please be aware of this potential hazard.
Remember, it's a toilet, not a trash can!
