Can bamboo toilet paper clog your toilet?

To put it simply, NO. Bim Bam Boo will not clog your pipes.

While we can't speak to all brands, we can share that Bim Bam Boo’s fiber structure was designed to dissolve in water. We've done extensive testing to prove this. The TLDR; because our tissue 100% plant-based and biodegradable, the formula melts when agitated in water. It’s a great choice for older homes with finicky plumbing, and wonderful in composting toilets!

What kind of toilet paper is best for pipes?

Stay far away from 4ply and 3ply options — the more material you flush, the more challenging it is for your pipes to handle. Traditionally, plumbers recommend single-ply, super thin TP (think marine and RV status). Bim Bam Boo’s 2-ply tissue is a great middle ground. Our unique water-soluble formula easily breaks down, but doesn’t make you suffer like the sand-papery recycled paper or janitorial alternatives. Bim Bam Boo tree-free bath tissue is soft on you, and soft on your pipes.

Avoiding Blockages

There is nothing worse than having to deal with a sewer blockage! 

You’re reading this article because you’re aware that some things just shouldn't be flushed (like unflushable wipes, paper towels and facial tissue). But that doesn’t mean that previous home owners abided by the same code of sewer ethics. Get in the know about your property’s current conditions by getting yourpipes scoped — a service a skilled plumber can provide. During their visit, they’ll put a camera down your pipes and inspect for any potential dangers. 

 

If you are in the unfortunate circumstance where you have experienced blockages, it’s time to call in a professional (AKA, a plumber).

Things that may be at the root of problematic plumbing that have nothing to do with toilet paper:
