Keep Your Home Healthy By Knowing What Not to Flush

To help consumers keep their homes healthy and their plumbing systems safe and running smoothly, the wipes industry has developed new, stronger labeling guidelines that call for prominent positioning of the “Do Not Flush” symbol on the product packaging for non-flushable wipes.

Increasing Public Awareness About Smart Flushing Habits Will Lead to Real, Lasting Changes

When you flush products that were NOT designed to be flushed, you are flushing your money down the toilet. On average, it costs about $300-$450 to repair the damage to your home plumbing system caused by clogs. And if it requires a whole house repipe, the average cost can range from $4,000-$15,000.
