Wipes Clog Pipes

Throw Away Used Wipes
Disposable does not always mean flushable. Many things do not dissolve, such as:
  • Baby wipes
  • Cleaning wipes
  • Cloth rags
  • Industrial wipes
  • Paper towels
These items get stuck in sewer pipes and sewer pumping equipment. Be kind to your plumbing. Throw used wipes and paper products in the trash.

Plumber Costs
The cost for hiring a plumber to unclog your private sewer line typically ranges from $75 to $350. These costs do not include the time it takes you to clean up the sewage that may have backed up or the time spent calling and waiting for a plumber.

Please share this information with everyone who cleans your home or business.

Other Items That Can Clog Your Pipes
In addition, kitchen grease, kitty litter, plastic or latex items, and needles can all clog pipes and should be bagged or contained and placed in the trash.
