Grease and Wipes Clog Pipes!
All drains in your home flow to the same sewer line. Whether you use the toilet or the sink, what goes down flows through the twists and turns in your home plumbing before making its way to the City’s wastewater system. These twists and turns are prime places for waste that didn’t break down to lodge.
Toilet paper is the only product designed to break down fast enough to flow through the pipes freely. Wipes, even those labeled “flushable,” do not breakdown like toilet paper and should never be flushed.
Plumbing problems are often caused by flushing materials that are not flushable. While many products may “flush” they do not dissolve fast enough to flow through the system like toilet paper. They build up in pipes and block your sewer line.
