Do Not Flush Wipes!
Why do Wipes cause problems?
Wipes are much stronger than toilet paper and do not break up or disintegrate during the flushing process. This allows the wipes to clog up the smaller lines that connect your house to the larger sewer main, and they often clog the larger sewer mains. The wipes routinely get caught in the lift station pumps. Flushing these items down the toilet are causing the following problems in Brevard County:
- Clogs in homeowners lateral lines and plumbing - homeowners must hire a plumber and assume this expense!
- Sewer lines clogging
- Lift stations clogging
- Sewer system pumps clogging
- Sewer overflows into the environment
- Sewer backups inside customer’s homes
- Increased maintenance costs
