For a minute there when you said "Heron Flushable" in the title... I thought there was genuinely a place called Flushable

Seconded. Please don't flush any wipes but put them in the bin, in a bag if necessary.
And I thought I am the only person happy with this decision
Great deal, shame no heron near me. I only use flushable wipes personally. I'll continue to use and flush them because they're flushable.

Heat added op!
Heat. Thanks Leah.

Those are the things you see waddling around the high street right? Slow moving, hard to miss, and smelly? And if you run into one you die.

You could just spend 2 minutes researching the issue and discover that without proper certification (SNAP protocol), products shouldn't be branded as flushable and shouldn't be flushed, but you just keep doing you - well done.
This deal, however, is good, just don’t flush the wipes people!

Whilst the voluntary (so non enforceable) SNAP code relating to so called non flushable products is certainly interesting and a step in the right direction it is the sole responsibility of the manufacturer to provide accurate product descriptions. In this case, the wipes are described as flushable and enter the sewage system easily. I've certainly never had any blockages nor any of my immediate neighbours. No reports of fatbergs either, except the one we saw in London on TV.

What I'm guessing potentially stops them in their tracks and creates blockages further down the line is all the non flushable items ignorant folk dispose of in the toilet including condoms, baby wipes, face wipes, cotton wool, nappies and cooking oil, for example. If you have concerns with flushable wipes not being flushable you need to direct your concern to the manufacturer.

But thanks for the heads up, appreciated.

Or... you could take some responsibility yourself? ‘Flushable’ wipes make up a huge portion of fat bergs (circa 80%) and also contribute to micro plastic pollution in rivers and the oceans. But hey, let’s forget that and just contact the manufacturer. If you stopped using them as they are so damaging, then they would stop producing and marketing them as such.

80% flushable wipes eh, wow. Where did you obtain that figure from? Here's a study done on the fat berg from London that was on the TV. You may want to cast your eye on paragraph three.

The root cause clearly isn't flushable wipes. The ones I use personally are flushable and dispersible. But again, thanks - good info!

And how much did your water rates go up last month?

From your Guardian report,

"The fat sticks to the side of the pipe, the wet wipes come down and stick to the fat, other fat comes down and sticks to the wet wipes and that adds to the mass of the fatberg,” Andy Drinkwater, a civil engineering consultant, said.

The tests showed some wet wipes, including some brands labelled as flushable, are unable to disintegrate in a sewer."

So your comment about wet wipes not being the root cause of the problem isn't supported by your own evidence.

Will do. Been a couple years using them with zero issues, but as soon it happens I'll PM you personally with graphic photos if you so desire of the impending bathroom catastrophe

Until then, have yourself lovely day.

The wipes and other stuff need something to adhere to in the pipes. That medium is fat.

The primary cause of the fat berg is therefore fat.

No fat, no fat berg, the dispersible flushable wipes happily continue their journey. The clue is in the name.

Aah, it’s like pulling teeth with some people. All the evidence shows they are bad, but you will pick the bits of info out you want to.
It’s quite simple, if you use them, don’t flush them.
BTW, I’ve seen the effects 1st hand, in treatment works, in sewers, when the sewers block... it ain’t pretty and the only way it will stop is with education. But some people are beyond that obviously. I suppose the world is flat and climate change is a myth too?

so you could say the same with what you said. - your comment about wet wipes BEING the root cause of the problem isn't supported by YOUR own evidence.

I suggest you find specific info regarding this exact brand of Toilet wipes, which in fact are not the same as "wet wipes", before you start berating people because they use a product you don't like.

Im guessing you will flush your own loo roll and such which also sticks to fat. Some people don't flush loo roll and put it in a bin of pit but they aren't here berating you.

Peace

Ah, you've reverted to insults.

So to conclude this epic conversation..it's best to wrap this up as it's detracting from the op's great deal - which you've no interest in.

- You vehemently oppose the use of flushable wipes, and believe they aren't flushable.

- You claimed 80% of 'fat bergs' are composed of flushable wipes, with sadly no evidence. I challenged this, and cited actual recent evidence to the contrary based on samples taken from the largest 'fat berg' seen in the UK.

- You reverted to insults such as "climate change denier" and the good old "flat earther".

I think we're done here Wiggo, it was an interesting and sometimes educational debate. Now I have to go to the shop I'm afraid, I need to stock up on some more flushable and dispersible wipes. Take care of yourself and keep smiling. I know I will.

Sorry, but you are wrong. Toilet paper disintegrates in the sewer, wet wipes, wet toilet paper, cleaning wipes etc all contain plastic so don’t. Put a sheet of toilet paper and a wipe in a bucket, stir with a stick, you’ll see straight away what I mean.
In the UK we have a good enough sewage system with big enough pipes to take toilet paper. A lot of other countries don’t, which is why you put it in a bin next to the toilet.
These aren’t a product I don’t like, they are very useful. What I don’t like is people spreading misinformation, the companies involved included. Let’s not forget these are private companies out to make money, they aren’t worried f they misrepresent their product, especially if it means more sales for them!

Will do, thanks.

Can you do me a favour though Wiggo and promise never to drive or be passenger in a car or get on a bus again in your life because if you do then you are contributing to the planet destroying gases being released into the atmosphere and then you are no better than those evil people who put flushable wipes in the toilet.

Stay strong and keep smiling my friend.

You really don’t get it, do you? It’s about making small changes to reduce our impact, getting public transport or walking instead of driving, changing our behaviours when someone points out the negatives from what we do.

I am smiling a lot thank you, firstly as my life means I get to spend a lot of my time enjoying and protecting our great outdoors. Secondly, as I only have to converse with heathens like you on forums like this.

If this debate has made one person change the way they dispose of their wipes, I am happy.

And PS, look at the top comments on this thread and you’ll see I am not alone in my thinking.

I almost said the same to the other dude about a bucket of water and flushable wipe. See how long it takes to break down etc but honestly I don't want to go on.
I totally understand what you are saying and I completely agree with not flushing baby wipes and the likes but as these say 'flushable' Toilet wipes (and I have felt them, they tear easily like wet paper towel) so I would have thought they would be fine to flush without causing any issue as they will break down. I would have thought labelling something as flushable in 2018 and it not being flushable would be investigated and I would hope it would be too if that is the case

I'm really happy for you that a few others clicking 'like' to comments that subscribe to your particular point of view makes you happy, and despite making claims about the content of fat bergs you have still not provided any evidence. You can rest assured Wiggo I do my fair bit for the planet (I'm a borderline obsessive recycler, for example).

We can debate endlessly if I'm honest Wiggo. But two things that won't change are..

1) You and those that support your point of view on this product won't flush any flushable wipes.

2) I and many, many others most certainly will continue to flush our flushable wipes.

Take care.

I don’t want to go on anymore now either, but I’ll just finish by explaining my point a bit more...
Technically they are flushable, so are nappies, cotton buds, condoms etc. They do flush away, but it doesn’t mean they should be. They cause blockages, resulting in pollution of rivers, and distress where it is in or near a house. Let’s not forget, when they are broken down into smaller pieces, these aren’t removed by the treatment process, so micro plastic ends up in the rivers and oceans.
The water companies are working hard to get this labelling removed from wipes such as these, but the industry is not willing... ultimately they know they won’t sell as many if they have to add that you can’t flush them in the toilet!
Anyway, thanks for posting the deal, it is a good one, just make sure you dispose of them properly!
These get filtered out into 'cakes' at the sewage treatment works along with sweetcorn, paper pulp etc..., dried and incinerated for their energy.
The problem with plastic in the sea comes from third world countries that bulldoze mountains of rubbish into rivers and onto beaches where it is used as an excuse to impose new taxes on people here.
