WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — People are flushing the wrong items down their toilets such as paper towels, baby wipes and flushable wipes.
The is due to a shortage of toilet paper in retail stores around the country. Plumbers say they don’t mind the extra work, but not at the expense of customers.
To make matters worse, plumbers say if people continue putting the wrong stuff down the toilet, pumps and lift stations will become backed up. That will eventually lead to peoples water being shut of to fix the issue.
