How to deal with Toilet Blockages during the COVID-19 Pandemic

During this pandemic, we have been getting a lot of calls for clogged toilets and toilet drains. Most of the time the culprit is wipes.

We know it says ‘Flushable’ but really they are NOT!

Even if the package says flushable, wipes are definitely not flushable. They do not break down like toilet paper and get stuck in the line.

If you have ever tried to wipe up a spill with toilet paper, you know what we are talking about. The toilet paper just starts falling apart and disintegrates… this is the why toilet paper is toilet paper and doesn’t cause problems in our drain pipes and sewer systems.

Paper towels, napkins, wipes and anything other than toilet paper do not not dissolve in the same way and can get snagged in a pipe and that is how a clog gets started.

Calls for repairing toilet clogs due to wipes like the photo above has become common during the Corona virus pandemic.

Homeowners coping with the virus are clogging toilets

We understand the need to be safe and follow the recommendations of public health officials to clean and sterilize frequently touched surfaces. Disinfectant wipes are a great way to accomplish this, just make sure they are finding their way into the garbage can and not the toilet.

Not only are we seeing an increase in toilet back ups and toilet drain clogs caused by flushing wipes, it is causing greater problems in backed up sewer lines and city sewer infrastructure as they are unable to process wipes that do not dissolve.
