Remember to take care of your sewer's health.
Things that don't belong in the toilet can cause blockages and leaks!
Your water fee buys you more than just clean tap water. Water utility companies work hard daily for the environment by cleaning your sewage water. The harder you make the cleaning process, the more expensive it will become.
