Bentonville Arkansas – BBB Septic Solution, a leading provider of portable toilets and septic cleaning systems in Arkansas, is warning Bentonville residents about the damage that cleaning wipes can, and are causing to septic systems. This problem has been exacerbated in recent months as the number of people using wipes has increased due to the Coronavirus.
People are using wipes to try and keep their hands clean and prevent the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, they are then disposing of those wipes down the toilet. BBB Septic in Arkansas was unable to pump out the septic tank on a recent call out because of the number of baby wipes in the tank. The only solution to this problem was to use an excavator to dig the tank up and then remove the concrete top off of it to dig the wipes out with a tractor. The cost for this type of work is somewhere in the region of $1200, which might shock many customers.
Part of the problem revolves around the marketing of baby and cleaning wipes, with many claiming that they are septic and sewer safe. Having responded to a dramatic increase in call-outs for this type of problem, BBB Septic Solution is advising all of their customers never to flush wipes down their toilet, regardless of whatever the packaging says. On the company blog, they have written several articles focusing on the most up to date septic information so that people can prevent problems and unexpected and expensive blockages in the future. By utilizing some of these concepts, customers can save money and improve water efficiency.
“The COVID-19 pandemic is causing a range of problems outside of health issues that are only starting to become apparent,” said Jon Jouvenaux of BBB Septic Solution.” Because they are worried about the spread of the virus and trying to follow guidelines about cleaning their hands regularly, they are using large amounts of baby and cleaning wipes. Unfortunately, they are then choosing to dispose of those wipes down the toilet, which is causing huge problems to their septic systems. Our advice to anyone reading this is to never dispose of baby or toilet wipes down the toilet regardless of what the packaging says. Otherwise, you could be contributing to a costly bill in the near future.”
