New York City Named Nation's Cloggiest City
The SCOTT Clog Clinic sponsored the survey to help Americans understand what a nuisance a toilet clog can be and to offer common-sense ways to avoid the problem. Clinic researchers say toilet clogs frequently occur during heavy flushing periods - like halftime at the Super Bowl or the day after Thanksgiving. Others most at risk for clogs and plumbing issues include those with low-flow toilets, septic tank systems, homes with older plumbing, and RVs or a boat with a toilet.
Also, many clogs occur when nontraditional items are flushed, including disposable diapers, facial tissue, paper towels or napkins, cat litter, feminine protection products, and even a cell phone or iPod.
