Items that clog sewer pipes in New Iberia and Lafayette, LA

We’ve all seen the advertisements for flushable wipes and heard the collective “sighs” of appreciation from families with a potty-training toddler. Unfortunately, these wipes are nondegradable. They often bind the screens going into the waste water treatment plant and can form ropes when knotted together in the pipes. They can also form balls that plug sewer pipes and cause backlogs and sewer flooding for the New Iberia and Lafayette, LA communities. Here at Pipes and Plugs, we wanted to provide you with a list of items that could cause serious problems to your residential or commercial property if flushed:

  • grease or oils from food, vehicles, etc.
  • cigarette butts
  • feminine hygiene products such as tampons, pads, and applicators
  • wipes, paper towels, or other cotton-like substances
  • condoms
  • Unused medications
  • anything other than human waste and toilet paper

If you flush these items, they can cause serious problems to your own property or to the local waste water treatment plant. While the box may claim the item can be flushed, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
