Keep Wipes Out of the Pipes


Did you know up to three-fourths of San Antonio’s sewer spills are caused by grease and debris in the sewer mains?

A big part of the problem is so-called “flushables” like baby wipes and other personal cleansing and disinfecting products. Why? Because even though these may not clog your toilet, they won’t break down in your home’s plumbing or the sewer system beyond. Instead, they clump together with grease in the pipe and cause a messy, smelly sewer overflow.

How can you help? The toilet is NOT a trash can. NEVER flush ANYTHING other than the three Ps: pee, poo and (toilet) paper.

Remember: #WipesClogPipes!
