Distance yourself from flushing "flushable" wipes

Posted on Mon Apr 6th, 2020 at 8:43 am

Many of us are feeling very helpless right now. It’s hard to even believe what’s going on- long lines at grocery stores, keeping a social distance from our friends and coworkers, and a toilet paper shortage! It’s crazy! Here at Blaisdell Plumbing and Heating, we’ve got your back. So, I’m going to let you in on a little secret…you know those flushable wipes that some of you may be using due to lack of regular toilet paper? Don’t flush them down your toilet! In fact, don’t flush anything other than traditional toilet paper. Wipes don’t biodegrade quickly. What this means for you is that they eventually get stuck somewhere in the drain, and over time that causes a huge clog that will end up costing you money later. However, no matter how careful you are, plumbing does break down occasionally. We’re here for you if you need us, and will deliver our impeccable service in the safest way possible to you and your family. Stay safe and healthy – we will get through this together.
