You may know Fairlington’s plumbing dates back to the 1940’s and pipes are made of terra cotta, unless they’ve been damaged and replaced. Here’s a reminder of what to
NOT flush through the system: please, no paper towels, sanitary napkins, tampons or
disposable diapers in toilets, and no raw vegetable peels, eggshells or grease in
garbage disposals. These items have caused damage to the sewer system and will
cause sewer backups. Also, adding sewer backup coverage to your personal
homeowners insurance coverage is wise.
