Septic Systems and Hygiene Wipes

Every time someone comes up with a new hygiene product humans benefit but the enviroment suffers in one way or the other. In the case of septic systems hygiene wipes are causing issues that recently affected a system at a local apartment building I ‘ am aware of. The wipes collected inside the drain lines causing grease to build up behind them causing a backup. I was told the expense was around $650.00 to have the tank pumped and the lines flushed. The owner now realizes these wipes have entered the Dry Well blocking the drainage holes in the Dry Well which now means that tank needs to be cleaned out.

Be careful what you put in your systems, no wipes, no harsh toilet cleaners, no paper towels or other hygiene products.
