  • The Trouble With Wipes In Your Pipes » Loxahatchee River District
    Dade Water Dewer Department It can actually have a reversal flow and cause sewer back up to come back into the community and into the houses If wipes are convenient they could also be expensive if you have to hire a plumber to unclog a nasty sewage backup in your house Danielle Adkins is a new mom who found out the hard way that her baby wipes clogged her pipes It backs up your whole system and it costs a lot of money to drain out your pipes It s ridiculous said Adkins In Miami Dade workers showed us what they see every day as they attempt to run interference on potential backups by putting a camera down the county s sewer pipes When you flush them down they get stuck right here in the joint the worker told CBS4 Right there in the joint and eventually three or four or five of them plug up the water from going through Sewer officials in both Miami Dade and Broward told CBS4 the wipes certainly flush as advertised but that s not their problem with the product It gets to the point where it doesn t dissolve or it doesn t dissolve enough and you know it just backs up and backs up said Messemer To find out how important a quickly dissolving product is CBS4 asked the only independent testing facility in the county to conduct a slosh test I P S testing in Wisconsin put toilet paper flushable wipes and non flushable wipes through the wringer in their slosh box lab This time lapse video shows what happens to all three products In the beginning all three are visisble After one hour the toilet tissue is barely visible but the flushable and non flushable wipes are still very intact After two hours in the slosh box the toilet tissue is completely dissolved while the flushable wipes have shredded some but visible chunks still remain and the non flushable wipes show barely any change After three hours each box is decanted and rinsed Nothing is left of the toilet paper there is a trace amount left by the flushable wipes while the non flushable wipes are still pretty intact You re one family and think about how many wipes you might flush down that toilet and then what happens asked Messemer Compound that by every other person in Miami Dade County Even Consumer Reports couldn t get flushable wipes to dissolve in their lab after ten minutes in a smililar slosh test The wipes didn t even dissolve after ten minutes in a mixer So if your wipes haven t dissolved by the time they get to a sewage pump there is going to be a mound of white trouble for workers like Canute Dawson to dig out Irene Dubois from Canada agreed Because that s what I understand it s not good for the systems and I don t flush them So did Jennifer Nieset from Plantation My husband
