Our sewer system was designed to transport toilet paper and human waste. Flushing anything else can cause clogs to occur in your home and the municipal plumbing lines. Even items marketed as ‘flushable’ won’t breakdown nearly as fast as toilet paper and are a big problem today.
If a clog occurs in your home’s plumbing, the responsibility and cost falls on you.
If a clog occurs in the municipal sewer line, the cost of repairs could be passed on to users in the form of higher utility fees.
