A constant problem we as drain engineers come across is baby wipes or wet wipes. They do not break down once flushed, so unless they are physically removed they can cause a permanent blockage.

Toilet wipes, are not as flushable as the name suggests. Many are labelled as being safe to flush, but this is simply not the case. One single toilet wipe may pass through the system, but if they are used regularly they can cause a build up, especially if they meet in the drain with remnants of fat or other matter. 

Wet wipes cause 93% of blockages in the UK and contribute to the famous “fatbergs” that cause blockages across the country. While toilet tissue in regular amounts should not cause too many problems, occasionally there are times when too much is flushed at one time. A substantial amount of tissue is quite a force to be reckoned with.
