Do Not Flush Wipes down your Toilet!

Flushable wipes are supposed to be an alternative to toilet paper.  They are promoted as being safe for sewers and septic systems.  Consumer Reports did a comparison of their top rated toilet paper which breaks down in approximately 8 seconds.  They stopped the test on wipes after 30 minutes, because they did not decompose.

Why are Flushable Wipes Promoted as “Flushable?”No Wipes Down the Pipes

The producers of flushable wipes, Charmin, Cottonelle and Scott all claim their wipes are sewer and septic safe, however, these products are notorious for blocking private sewer laterals, public sewer mains, and binding up municipal pumps.  The burden the wipes place on wastewater treatment operations is extensive.

Should a Diaper be Flushed?

Items that list themselves as flushable, but are not, include; diapers, diaper liners, baby wipes, pre-moistened wipes, bathroom cleaning wipes, feminine hygiene products, toilet seat covers, doggy doo-doo bars and cat litter.  The plumbing system isn’t designed to grind up and handle these non-biodegradable products.  This can cause a drain clog or a total sewer line back up.  It’s best to put these items in a sealed bag and put in the trash.

Clogged Toilet?SEWER BACKED UP FROM WIPES

It could be a problem such as a slow flush, or a complete sewer line back up from an overload of products that are not designed to flush.  All homeowners should take this into consideration for safety in their own homes to not flush any of the products listed above, otherwise, you may be in for a septic back up, a sewer clog, and a lot of headachePLUMBER NEAR ME.  Not to mention the extra expense to make the necessary repairs.
