Waste Water - Toilets are only meant for one activity, and you know what we’re talking about! When the wrong thing is flushed, such as baby wipes, results can include costly backups on your own property or problems at our waste water treatment plant. That’s why it’s so important to treat toilets properly. Remember, no wipes in the pipes!.

imagine life without a toilet. 2.6 billion people do not have to imagine.

"You could not step twice into the same rivers for other waters are ever flowing on to you." ~ Heraclitus of Ephesus
