: My husband insists on flushing old food and food scraps down the toilet. Can this damage the septic system? Please advise. Thanks

Jo,
As far as I know, it should be Okay. Keep in mind, you will be pumping the tank more often. Balance that with composting or more trips to the garbage can outside.

If the tank is pumped often, only water will flow through the drainfield. When the tank is overfull, solids will leave the tank and plug the drainfield.

For all of you on septics, When was the last time you pumped. It's much cheaper to pump than replace the drainfield. Terry
