Flushable Wipes Are Clogging Septic Systems Ham Lake MNThere has been a growing trend toward convenient Flushable Personal Wipe Tissues. Unfortunately, problems with Clogged Sewer Pipes have been piling up around the country. Municipal sewer systems have spent millions to combat the problem.

Wipes Can Reach Septic Pumps Within Minutes

When marketing flushable wipes for toddlers and adults, manufacturers claim that they are septic-safe. Utility officials are saying that the tests used to determine how safe they are, do not reflect actual conditions within the sewage treatment systems. These wipes are made to disinigrate into small pieces within 3 hours of entering the system. However, the flushed wipes can reach the septic pumps within minutes.


Clogged Pipes Causing Sewage Backups

Flushable Tissues have been Harmful to Septic Systems. Septic Technicians are finding many blockages and clogged pipes when they are called to service septic systems. Flushable Tissue Wipes are making up a larger percentage of the clogs. A large blockage within a septic pipe can cause raw, untreated sewage to backup into your home.


More Frequent Septic Tank Pumping

Using these personal wipes in your home will most likely cause your septic tank to fill up and need pumping more often. Undissolved tissues collect inside of the tank where they take a long time to break down and disintegrate. Repairing damages can become very costly for the Ham Lake homeowner. Having to upgrade or replace your septic system is expensive. Placing used wipes into the garbage is a better solution than flushing them down your toilet.
