Sewer systems around the world have a new enemy, FLUSHABLE WIPES!
Flushable wipes are personal wet wipes, moistened towelettes, baby wipes and disinfecting wipes. The “flushable” or wet wipes can be easily flushed down the toilet, but they won’t dissolve. Some manufacturers insist that wet wipes can be flushed away by your toilet but that doesn’t mean they won’t cause a problem underground. The wipes can float along in the sewer main coming in contact with grease and fats from cooking, ultimately creating a mass of grease and wipes that can build up to a point that they could potentially clog the sewer main. Once the sewer main becomes clogged, the sewer will back up causing the sewage to enter into homes and businesses. Please don’t flush wipes down the toilet and as always, please don’t pour cooking grease or oil into the drain. Go with the flow!
