LONDON, ONT. — While the discussion of toilet paper seems to be a hot topic these days, have you thought about your toilet?
As we spend more time at home, we want to make sure that our toilets do not back up causing us to have bigger issues than running out of the paper itself.
It may be obvious, or even sound silly, but we are reminded of the three Ps as we resist flushing anything other than pee, poop, and (toilet) paper down the toilet.
Canadian municipalities strongly remind you that your toilet is not a trash can.
“At a time when we are being quarantined or self-isolated at home due to COVID-19, nobody wants a situation that would force you out of your home where you are safest,” observed Robert Haller, executive director of the Canadian Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA).
