Kallangur Plumbers Concerned About Public Response To Toilet Paper Shortage

18 Mar 2020

 by Brett Mulhall

With the current uncertain supply of toilet paper, it might be easy to consider alternatives. Whether you're reaching for a paper towel, a wipe, or anything in between, it is critical you remember that the sewage systems in your house are only designed for toilet paper. If you've flushed something else down the toilet and you need help, Aptus Plumbing & Gas remains one of the best plumbers northside to get you back on your feet.

Blockages in your sewage lines form quickly. Toilet paper is the right shape, size, and thickness necessary to be able to flow along the pipes without becoming caught upon itself. Paper towels, however, take too long to degrade completely as they are both too large and too thick, while wet wipes simply won't degrade at all thanks to their composition. Our Kallangur plumbers have seen it before - the blockages form down the pipeline, but the immediate effects are staggering. Fixing this is a long and complicated job, and though we here at Aptus Plumbing & Gas will do everything in our power to help you should the need arise, it would be best if you undertook 'preventative plumbing' and refrained from flushing anything down the toilet if it's not toilet paper.

Much like any other aspect of home maintenance, the best time to repair your plumbing is before any complications arise. You wouldn't let a water leak rot your drywall unchecked; no doubt you would take the necessary steps now to save yourself the hassle of dealing with a more complicated issue later. Plumbing systems require the same preventative measures. The care you take for your pipes today can save you from a headache later. Only flush toilet paper down your sewage pipes to prevent future complications.

If you've flushed something unordinary down your toilet, then you may need to call a plumber. Aptus Plumbing & Gas provides excellent plumbing northside services, and we're always ready to help restore basic functionality to your household so your life may continue as usual. When you're ready to see what we can do for you, call us on (07) 3205 1991.
