A Sensitive Subject—Sewer Blockage

No one particularly likes to talk about sewage backup problems, but when one affects your own home, it becomes an urgent subject. In addition to the fact that sewer lines in the Village are old and have limited capacity, trends in the marketing of hygiene products are filled with easy-to-believe fallacies that are causing major blockages.

Despite the marketing claims of adult incontinence products and “flushable” wipes, most products do not break down in a timely enough manner to avoid clogging plumbing systems. Once a sewer line or toilet is clogged, the blockage attracts more and more debris and becomes a critical issue. Only standard bathroom tissue should be disposed of in toilets throughout the Village.
