When “flushable” wipes clog up the sewer pipes in your home or business, call the clog-clearing experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
The city of Largo is committed to sustainability. Part of that commitment is sending out an enewsletter to let folks know what’s happening in the city. The city’s most recent enews blast contained something more than happenings. It also contained a warning: “Don’t Flush Wipes. Did you know tat ‘flushable wipes’ aren’t actually flushable?”
It’s true. Despite what the packaging says, “flushable” isn’t always “flushable.”
Yes, flushable wipes WILL disappear from the toilet bowl when flushed, but, as globalcitizen.org points out that “the vast majority of so-called ‘flushable’ wet wipe brands sold actually can’t be safely flushed down the toilet. According to experts, ‘flushable’ wet wipes routinely fail water industry tests designed to find out how well they disintegrate once they’ve been flushed.”
Instead, they cause clogs in home, business, and municipal sewer systems. Clearing those clogs costs money. And those that don’t cause clogs and don’t disintegrate, says globalcitizen,com, “can also reach the seas and oceans — with their tiny, plastic fibers causing damage to marine life.”
So, do yourself a favor and don’t flush those wet wipes down the toilet. If you do, and you get a clog, call the clog-clearing experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
