As a plumber in New York City, I hear about a lot of things getting flushed down the toilet and the problems that result. Not all toilet clogs are caused by items that never should have been flushed down the toilet, but many are.
After the toilet is flushed, water and waste materials are carried out of the bowl to the sewer system via a series of drain pipes. These drain pipes aren’t overly narrow, but they are small enough that items can and do become stuck.
Baby diapers pack a double whammy – no pun intended – when it comes to clogging toilets. First of all, they’re generally good sized, especially for larger babies who filled their diaper to capacity, if you know what we’re saying. Second, diapers are designed to be absorbent. If you put them in a wet environment, they take in as much water as they can.
As a result, they swell – and swelling inside a sewer drain pipe means a really solid clog. If you are able to flush the toilet, the water will only go down very slowly – and as further waste materials accumulate, it may become impossible to flush the toilet at all.
