Be Careful What you Flush

As you may know, there are both cast iron pipes and PVC pipes in our buildings. If you put towelettes down the toilet – they don’t disintegrate very fast and they get hung up on the junction of the two types of pipes causing backups and stoppages. Just a little reminder that NOTHING BUT WHITE TOILET PAPER SHOULD GO DOWN THE TOILETS!! No feminine products, fresh wipes or similar items – no matter what the boxes say! We have heard from news sources that when the “flushable wipes” finally get to the sewage treatment plants they form huge white balls they call “polar bears”. Quite the image, eh?!
