Are you well-stocked on toilet paper? It seems as if the supply finally has caught up to the demand that the COVID-19 crisis brought about, but you might have ended up with a new type of toilet paper that you haven’t been using in the past.
We all have different preferences when it comes to the type of paper we like to use, and so does your septic system. Any homeowner with a septic system needs to be aware of the issues that using the wrong type of toilet paper can cause. While some brands clearly mark their product as being safe for septic, this might not always be clearly expressed. If you are uncertain whether or not the paper you have is safe for septic, you should do the research before you start flushing it down the toilet. Avoiding causing your septic system to get backed up because of the wrong toilet paper is worth spending some extra time on research.
