The Flushable wet wipes problem
Yes, Dude wipes are real! If you operate a wastewater treatment facility, you likely have this problem already, and it’s not going away anytime soon. Flushable wipes (aka: baby wipes, wet wipes, even dude wipes……..) are certainly flushable…yes they go down, but they are wreaking havoc on wastewater systems everywhere. Class action lawsuits, town bans, and other legal action are popping up and will take years to work through the legal system.
What can you do to solve the wet wipe problem now?
Install a Vaughan chopper pump(s). In 1960 Vaughan developed a chopper pump for local dairy farmers as manure pumps and has been making chopper pumps that essentially obliterate anything in their path ever since.
