As the nation continues to face tough times during the coronavirus pandemic, you may find yourself struggling to find toilet paper at your local grocery store. Many stores limit the number of toilet paper packs you may buy during one purchase while others are completely out of stock.
You may also find others choosing alternatives such as paper toles, baby wipes, napkins, and even feminine hygiene products. Sanitation and water districts advice all public to understand and properly enforce that toilets are not trash cans.
As residents begin to call plumbers and clog removal specialists, we advise all residents to use toilet paper only. Clogging your toilet lines can call for a complete replacement of your sewer main.
