  1. I agree with you that the public needs to be informed on what not to flush. The amount of time we spend cleaning out pumps and volutes is getting worse. The plumbing code should be updated to include some kind of screen in residence. This would help people realize what doesn’t belong in the toilet after they have to clean it a few times. Just a thought

  2. Dear Water Brothers,
