Americans are clogging their toilets with wipes because of quarantine

  It has been seen around the world that many supply centers have run out of toilet paper, even the large distributor Amazon has been out of stock of the same product for a time. Now that it has been a long time since the quarantine was announced due to the lack of this (apparently) essential product in the homes of Americans, they have been in need of buying alternatives for such toilet paper.

Now the consequences are presented due to the change the consequences are beginning to be seen in Locations such as Spokane (Washington), Charleston (South Carolina), Lexington (Kentucky) or Austin in Texas have registered pipe problems because they are clogging their toilets with wipes for quarantine, which has prompted them to push the hashtag #WipesClogPipes (wipes clog pipes).

The wipes are not dilutable


This is because the wipes are not made of the same dilutable material, so they cover the sewer.

Bodies such as the California Water Resources Board or the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District have asked citizens for a change of practice.

Now that their toilets are clogged with wipes by the quarantine, affected Americans can face twice as many problems because sewers rely heavily on the flow of water to move waste, there is a double problem with using disposable alternatives: on the one hand, the obstruction of the pipeline itself and, on the other, the arrival of undissolved products at the wastewater treatment facilities.

So they must reconsider their use if they do not want to lose access to water, much less in this quarantine situation.

 Now that the massive purchase of toilet paper has gone viral around the world, Americans who found out that their toilets are being clogged with quarantine wipes have turned that fact into a meme. Better laugh than cry right?
