“In recent years, wastewater treatment officials around the country have been begging people to stop flushing wet wipes. ‘Even wipes labeled as ‘flushable’ can lead to toilet and pipe blockages.’” Source
“Sewer systems across the country are warning customers not to flush those so called 'flushable' wipes.' But unlike toilet paper which disintegrates in water, the wipes don't break down. ‘If you're a sewer system customer you pay for all the added costs.’” Source
“As they make their way down the pipes, rather than breaking down quickly, they start clogs that lead to blockages. They get out into your main sewer line where they not only damage your home but also potentially the entire sanitation system.” Source
“Toilet paper is designed to disintegrate in our pipes and sewage systems, but wipes are not. They’re typically made with synthetic materials, plastics or polyester, that won't break down. So even if they flush down your toilet, they end up clogging our sewers.” Source
“In 2018, New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection had to clear over 2,000 fatbergs and reports that “flushable” wipes make up 90 percent of the clogs.” Source
“Pinellas County, Florida leaders are sounding the alarm over a problem costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars — "flushable" wipes. The wipes don't dissolve in water like toilet paper and it's leading to huge problems at our local water treatment plants.” Source
“I’m really upset. I’m retired and have limited resources. I just had to spend $3,300 on a new sewage pump that was ruined by flushable wipes.” Source
“Nationally, the problem costs utilities up to a $1 billion per year and it could cost homeowners up to $40,000 in damages.” Source
