Too many products that were NEVER designed to be flushed are being thrown down the toilet and clogging our pipes. Click around and learn more about what it means to maintain a healthy home and be #FlushSmart.
Just Because It Can Be Flushed, Doesn’t Mean It Should Be
Most items used in the bathroom and around your home are non-flushable, such as baby wipes, paper towels, tampons, pads, cleaning wipes, and other items. If they are not designed or intended to be flushed, they can wreak havoc on your home and our sewer systems. 98 percent of materials that clog equipment at wastewater treatment plants should not be flushed.
Keep Your Home Healthy By Knowing What Not to Flush
To help consumers keep their homes healthy and their plumbing systems safe and running smoothly, the wipes industry has developed new, stronger labeling guidelines that call for prominent positioning of the “Do Not Flush” symbol on product packaging for non-flushable wipes.
Increasing Public Awareness About Smart Flushing Habits Will Lead to Real, Lasting Changes
When you flush products that were NOT designed to be flushed, you are flushing your money down the toilet. On average, it costs about $300-$450 to repair the damage to your home plumbing system caused by clogs. And if it requires a whole house repipe, the average cost can range from $4,000-$15,000.
