Disposable Wipes and Sewer Problems.

Did you know disposable wipes are not flushable! They may be convenient, but when flushed down the toilet, they cause big problems. Not only will they clog your plumbing, they plug up sewer and waste water pumps creating overloads in the sewer system, ultimately damaging expensive equipment. Toilet paper is the only substance that breaks down and flushes through the wastewater system.

Please don't flush disposable wipes.
