There are really only three things that should ever go down your drains and toilets – water, human waste and toilet paper. Cleaning wipes, “flushable” wipes, grease, or paper towels should never be sent down the drain. Doing so will lead to backups.
The damage and cleanup expenses associated with a backup are almost always the property owner’s responsibility. Be a good neighbor and be vigilant about this important issue. Place wipes and other products in the trash instead.
