Over the past 25 years or so, technology has made many advancements to allow for products that make our lives easier. Unfortunately, these products do not always work exactly as described. For example, several companies have created what they call “flushable” or disposable wipes and tell you to flush them down the toilet. These wipes are extremely useful during potty training and so much more; however, they do not dissolve in water the same way toilet paper does. Instead, products like tampons, sanitary napkins, cotton balls, and disposable wipes clog up plumbing pipes and can create problems for both your home’s plumbing system and the local waste water treatment plant. As plumbing from local homes compile, these types of materials collect together to form a rope-like substance that causes backlogs and flooding that can damage the residential and commercial plumbing for our North Houston, including customers.
