Don't Flush | Clogged Pipes

Flushing the wrong things down your toilet can cause clogged pipes farther down the line and leave you searching for an expert to unblock your pipes.

You know the drill. You’re headed out and you turn around and your child has something all over his face. You grab a moist towelette, wipe away and then flush it. Hesto presto. You have a clean child and the mess is headed to the sewer never to be heard from again. You and your kids head out the door to the North Pole Express.

Well, maybe. Actually, it’s very possible you could hear about that moist towelette again. Like when your plumber has to pry it and others out of your clogged drains and clogged pipes.

Yes, that’s right, those moist towelettes and bathroom wipes are notorious for causing clogs. They are not flushable despite what the label says.

“They are not toilet paper. They are thicker and sturdier, and do not easily break down in water. They are manufactured for durability and cannot be torn as easily as toilet paper,” says. “Many brands today are marketed as ‘flushable.’ Despite this, they still cause sewer clogs and backups. The problem is that if you have just a small clog in the pipes, these flushable wipes quickly add to the size of the clog and the growing problem, leading to expensive home plumbing repairs down the line. Flushing wipes down the toilet can harm your household pipes, sewer lines, as well as the sewer system’s pumps and filters.”
