The COVID-19 outbreak has led many of us to use disposable disinfecting wipes more frequently. The packaging says “Flushable “ but they aren’t. They clog grinder pumps. They constrict service piping. Even our pumping facilities are not immune from the havoc they cause. Please put them in the trash- don’t flush them down the toilet.
Should our repair technicians find your grinder pump failed thanks to wipes, you will be liable for the repair costs.
