Wipes and Personal Hygiene Products Clog Sewer Lines
Unfortunately, many household products are labeled and marketed as DISPOSABLE and/or FLUSHABLE; many baby and adult personal hygiene products, along with household wipes and cleaning towelettes are labeled both disposable and flushable. While these products may be marketed as a convenience item in this way, the truth is that these types of items have the ability to clog and stop up not only the sewer line on your property, but can also cause blockage and service problems in the public sewer system and pump stations.
Unlike toilet paper, these products DO NOT break down once they are flushed and can lead to an expensive repair to the sewer line on your property.
On a larger scale, when these products make their way into the public sewer system they collect together, causing very large obstructions and clogs in the main collector lines and pump stations; which can lead to costly repairs and or replacement of equipment.
The following items should NEVER be flushed into the sewer system:
Disinfecting/surface wipes, Baby wipes, Jewelry wipes, Cosmetic wipes, Disposable diapers or liners, Cotton swabs, Toilet cleaning pads, Mop or Swiffer type refills, Paper Towels, Pet care wipes, First Aid wipes, Bio-pads, Feminine hygiene products, Prophylactics, Any moist type towelette.
Simply put - Do not flush any consumer item that is not toilet paper.
