Wipes Clog Pipes

Wipes Clog Pipes image

Please only flush toilet paper down pipes, no other wipes, or even paper towels. So called "flushable" wipes can still cause problems because they do not disintegrate quick enough.  With toilet paper becoming the new currency, other products may be taking it’s place but don’t be tempted to flush them.  We all need to work together to not cause problems with our sewer lines.  Remember backups or clogs in your sewer line are your responsibility. 

Also with more of us cooking from home now, remember to not dispose of grease or oils down the sink.  Let it cool and then place it in the trash. The combination of wipes and grease can really cause big trouble in our pipes.
